Up to now, pure biodiesel has caused problems in conventional engines. This could change.
Chemically aggressive conditions prevail during the manufacture of hydrogen from water. This wears out the catalysts used. It would be practical if they were to regenerate themselves.
At present around 17 per cent of the youth in Europe are unemployed. An EU project wants to remedy that.
In the first attempt, the chemists investigated alcohols using their new procedure. Later, they want to work on larger molecules. This could help when developing medications.
Children who are confronted with a foreign language at an early stage at school have no problem learning it. A commonly held view. It would seem, however, that this is a rather simplistic notion.
Even though they don’t have any hands, they have something in common with humans.
We usually imagine comet impacts as a threat and not as the source of life. But perhaps they were precisely that. Researchers in Bochum are looking for evidence for this theory.
In many African countries where English is an official language local varieties of English have developed. This can lead to problems for students in those countries.
An early and precise cancer diagnosis is crucial for successful treatment.
Hearing aids are meant to transmit speech intelligibly – even if it is loud in the environment. Bochum-based researchers have gained new insights to support the development of better devices.
For almost a decade, researchers from Bochum have been developing biotechnological methods for hydrogen production. Green algae might be the key.
17th century scholars did not converse in Latin, but they used the language for reading and writing. And it also had a third function.
Cells are full. Full of a wide range of proteins. What matters is the right mixture.
Findings in the field of olfactory research may help develop a novel therapy approach.
It took painstaking research by medical professionals from Bochum until the cause of this disease was discovered. Still, many questions pertaining to the underlying mechanisms have remained open.
Ischemic disorders of the retina are a frequent cause of blindness. The surrounding cellular protein scaffold might play a crucial role in this process.
The Cluster of Excellence Resolv will receive the boost of an inter-institutional professorship, to expand laser spectroscopy technology within the research field of solvation science.
Many people are not quite certain if an electric car would fit into their everyday life. A new smartphone app might help with this issue.
Unlike hitherto assumed, the cause is not to be found in the brain.
Thanks to glowing bacteria in special organs below their eyes, flashlight fish send out flashing signals at night. Biologists from Bochum have researched their purpose.
