Precious metal nanoparticles of platinum and gold are excellent catalysts. But they are expensive and rare. This new method makes it possible to save material.
Since they are so tiny, it is difficult to investigate single nanoparticles. However, this is exactly what researchers are aiming for in order to tailor their properties. For that purpose, they came up with a trick.
The causes of the disease are for the most part obscure. Researchers intend to expose them using cerebral organoids grown from stem cells.
The key to a long life for bioelectrodes lies in an oxygen-free environment.
When the fear of spiders or heights gets so extreme that it interferes with everyday life, it makes sense to undergo cognitive-behavioural therapy. The approach works quite well, and it could become even more efficient.
Applying technology developed in-house, IT security experts from Bochum have identified hundreds of bugs in critical software, including operating systems such as Windows and Linux. Clouds, too, are affected.
Corvids are incredibly clever. But they are not always the easiest birds to handle.
The network aims to raise the international visibility and facilitates networking with female researchers.
Why we should never forget to resurface after virtual submersion in the past.
Students attending Antje Klinge’s courses don’t learn sport in the traditional sense of the word. Rather, they learn a lot about themselves.
In engineering sciences, the first semesters in particular are tough for students. The dropout rates are high. Still, this might yet change.
The programme of the Bochum-Dortmund Cluster of Excellence Ruhr Explores Solvation and colleagues from Switzerland is funded with around 3.5 million euros.
An extremely fast reproducing virus is to blame for the therapy resistance of hepatitis E virus. Still, it has now helped researchers creating a cell culture model.
Nanoscientists have discovered a new reaction mechanism to cleave cellulose efficiently and environmentally friendly.
Among the contributions of excellent female researchers from all over the world are two papers of RUB professors.
It is harder for founders to get a company up and running in chemistry than in other fields. A new institution is intended to change that.
Fuel cells do not yet function optimally because the perfect catalyst is missing – the wrong methods have been used to find them so far, says Kristina Tschulik.
There has been no method so far to investigate the influence of the particles in complex surroundings. Initial results with a new method show that the particles behave differently than expected.
Two international students discuss how a scholarship programme helped them in the graduation phase.
Humans do forget – annoying though important for human’s mental health. The Internet is another story. So far.
