Photosensitized synthesis of protected aminoalcohols. Credit: WWU – Glorius Group New method for generating the least accessible form of vicinal aminoalcohols; study published in Nature Catalysis. Whether in beta-blockers to treat high blood pressure or in natural products, so-called vicinal aminoalcohols are high-quality organic compounds that are found in many everyday […]

The basis of the innovative battery chemistry for the zinc-air batteryis a non-alkaline, aqueous electrolyte. Credit: WWU – MEET (Judith Kraft) International Research Cooperation for Sustainable Batteries of the Future High-performance, eco-friendly, safe and at the same time cost-effective: the zinc-air battery is an attractive energy storage technology of the […]

Biochemists use protein engineering to transfer photocaging groups to DNA. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is the basis of life on earth. The function of DNA is to store all the genetic information, which an organism needs to develop, function and reproduce. It is essentially a biological instruction manual found in every cell. Biochemists […]

ANIMATION Scientific articles in the field of physics are mostly very short and deal with a very restricted topic. A remarkable exception to this is an article published recently by physicists from the Universities of Münster and Düsseldorf. The article is 127 pages long, cites a total of 1075 sources […]
