Long-Lasting, Intense Afterglow

Organic dyes with persistent delayed fluorescence and ultralong phosphorescence


A team of researchers from Lithuania has developed organic dyes showing a particularly long afterglow after being excited by light. Doping a polymer with newly synthesized diboraanthracene dyes resulted in an intense red or blue–green dual afterglow, which was composed of persistent thermally ...

Shedding New Light on Viruses

Analysis of viruses with a combination of mass spectrometry and X-ray laser


Professor Dr. Charlotte Uetrecht from the University of Siegen is studying the structures of proteins and protein complexes in coronaviruses and noroviruses, and how they change over the viral lifecycle. She is developing a new method to obtain as much information as possible about states of ...

Natural products against flu viruses

Active substances from nature could help inhibit the spread of flu viruses in the future


Fever, cough, sore throat, and general malaise – the cold season is here, and not only corona but also influenza viruses are spreading again at a rapid pace. Influenza A and B viruses cause severe, contagious infections that can even be fatal if complications arise. The most effective protection ...

Antiviral defence regulates intestinal function and overall gut health

New function of a known defence mechanism discovered


Besides the skin, the digestive tract is the tissue that is most exposed to environmental influences such as bacteria and viruses. Therefore, cells that form these barriers to the interior of the body also have special defence mechanisms. A research team led by Professor Dr Thorsten Hoppe has now ...

Universal multigene marker may revolutionize biodiversity research

Genetic fingerprints of species in the age of genomics


An international team led by scientists from the Museum Koenig in Bonn (Leibniz Institute for the Analysis of Biodiversity Change) has for the first time successfully tested a universal set of genes for the systematic characterization of different animal species. Many of the methods used to date ...

Watching viruses fail

Surfaces with antiviral properties: Findings can be used to optimize facial masks


Using a new analytical method, Empa researchers have tracked viruses as they pass through face masks and compared their failure on the filter layers of different types of masks. The new method should now accelerate the development of surfaces that can kill viruses, the team writes in the journal ...
