RUB is competing for the title “University of Excellence” with the concept Creating Knowledge Networks.
The RUB’s concept for the Excellence Strategy is based on knowledge networks. What does this mean in practice?
Certain molecules with fluorine, chlorine or bromine, together with water, can release harmful substances into the atmosphere.
The new system to produce certain nitrogen compounds could make the manufacture of medicines and pesticides more efficient.
More than 4,000 international students are currently enrolled at RUB; the Student Advice Centre helps them identify potential funding options.
The solvation process is of fundamental importance for chemistry – but is very difficult to observe.
Researchers have combined two concepts that make the system as efficient as precious metal catalysts.
New findings pave the way for chemical reproduction of hydrogen-producing enzymes.
In catalysis, nature is sometimes more efficient than artificial systems. Researchers have copied one of the tricks.
Mountains extend not only upwards, but also downwards into the earth. Researchers use earthquakes to gain an idea of this.
Large volumes of century-old carbon are stored in forest soils. It should better stay there.
Engineers who have a better understanding of the wear and fracture of tools used in subterranean tunnel construction factories will be able to prolong it and render the construction of the tunnel more efficient.
Lights out, doors open, online orders out: in a networked home, everything is controlled by voice or by pressing a smartphone button. But so far little thought has been given to who should be able to press which buttons.
Several salt mummies have been unearthed in an old mine in Iran. Some of them originated before the birth of Christ. Who were they? And how had they lived?
Chemical molecules that behave like images and mirror images interact differently with other molecules. A new project is set to reveal more about their differences.
Some molecules change their spatial structure when exposed to light – in other words, they look different in light and darkness. What exactly happens during the conversion has not yet been researched in detail.
Dripstones reflect the climate of the past. This hypothesis is substantiated by 500-year-old graffiti.
The Electrochemical Society honours the diverse work of the Bochum-based scientist in applied and basic research.
The protein Bax is responsible for programmed cell death. Because it is constantly changing its location, its structure has so far been difficult to determine.
Major success in Bochum: two Clusters of Excellence go to Ruhr-Universität.
