Unlike metallic magnets, magnets consisting of organic molecules could be lightweight, transparent, flexible or liquid. Normally, however, they are unstable.
Following the 100th exam for German as a foreign language, two participants have related what it was like and why they continue studying German even after the test is over.
The heart of the biological catalyst is only introduced during the last step. The process is complex.
RUB has strategically aligned itself in the competition for excellence – and it will continue along its path.
Alfred Ludwig has renamed his Chair. He tells us why in our interview.
Travellers entering China from Kyrgyzstan have to install an app on their phones, as was unearthed by investigative journalists. IT experts from Bochum have analysed the application’s function.
The researcher integrates plant enzymes into sensors and fuel cells.
Precious metals are often efficient catalysts. But they are expensive and rare. However, it has so far been difficult to determine how efficient non-precious metal alternatives are.
Certain membrane proteins specialise in transporting molecules out of cells – a problem for the efficacy of cancer medication and antibiotics.
Acids tend to release a proton. However, they display more complex behaviour under space conditions.
About tiny samples and big research projects.
Tong Li routinely handles individual atoms as part of her work. She explains how and why on Twitter.
Good news for students pursuing a teaching degree: the Master of Education degrees at RUB are no longer subject to restrictions.
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.
The planned research building has been awarded the highest rating by the the German Council of Science and Humanities.
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.
