The Rectorate invites every RUB member to contribute to the debate.
All Aishwarya Deshpande wanted was go back to India for her holidays; she had no idea how this would affect her studies.
Bacterial enzymes are often powerful but also very sensitive catalysts. To call up their performance, they therefore need a special environment.
Efficient catalysts are crucial for energy conversion. However, findings from basic research rarely make it into practice at present.
In hydrogenase enzymes, the transports of protons and electrons have been considered to be separate events until now. However, coupling is the key to success here.
Until now, unwanted by-products have always been produced during the reactions. The catalyst opens up new applications.
In DNA, information is stored in the sequence of chemical building blocks; in computers, information consists of sequences of zeros and ones. Researchers want to transfer this concept to artificial molecules.
Some catalysts show remarkable high activity. Thanks to water.
In 2014, the electronics manufacturer LG introduced a new technology to unlock the display of its mobile phones using a series of taps. This doesn’t make the devices more secure – contradicting LG’s advertisement.
The alliance UNIC has won a grant from the European Commission.

The sharepoint servers are now back in operation. This means further central services are available once again.
The summer semester is not over yet, but the first recommendations on how to continue teaching in autumn have been issued. Online application for Bachelor programms is open.
At the same time, most of the entrances to the buildings on campus will be reopened.
“Alexa,” “Hey Siri,” “OK Google” – voice assistants are supposed to react to these triggers. But other words activate them, too.
Studied in detail, the embedding of hydrophobic molecules in water looks quite different than previously assumed.
And it took less than half an hour.
Good news for several thousand users on the campus.
