The European Research Council is supporting the catalyst research of Bochum-based scientist Beatriz Roldán Cuenya. Ultimately, this could help to use climate-damaging CO2 in a sensible way.
Batteries for electric vehicles are expensive. This must change if the vehicles are to establish themselves in the market. RUB engineers are currently adjusting one important element.
Molecular switches control a wealth of processes in the body. If they fail, we fall ill.
Researchers from Bochum have developed a sensor that remains fully operational even when an avalanche rolls over it.
Efficiently producing and storing energy – such as for implanted medical systems – is a challenge for our society. A biocatalyst-polymer system could take on both tasks at once.
In proteins and rubber, they are indispensable: bonds between two sulphur atoms that link long molecules together. Pulling from outside on the disulphide bonds triggers unexpectedly complicated processes.
Students enjoy it most when they get to make things pop and burn in their chemistry lessons. But do they take away from the experiments what they are supposed to understand?
This is how chemical processes could become more environmentally friendly.
Plants of the same species show surprisingly diverse properties in their natural habitat. This discovery bodes well for research and development towards sustainable environmental technologies.
The solvent is far more than just the environment for a chemical reaction. A recent study reveals new insights into the role of solvent molecules.
Many people have experienced it themselves. A nap after learning helps you to retain new information better. But just what is happening in the brain?
60,000 workers die on construction sites worldwide every year. This number could fall if a new idea by Bochum-based engineers proves to be of use.
