At present, microbial fuel cells are mainly used in research laboratories to generate electricity. In order for industrial applications to be considered in the future, the fuel cells must be further developed so that they can produce consistently higher amounts of electricity than is currently ...
Applications in medicine, drug discovery and environmental chemistry
A new tool to identify small molecules offers benefits for diagnostics, drug discovery and fundamental research. A new machine learning model will help scientists identify small molecules, with applications in medicine, drug discovery and environmental chemistry. Developed by researchers at Aalto ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Monitoring and controlling particle size via inline measurements
The 15th edition of CPHI & PMEC India 2022 was kicked off at the India Expo Centre in Greater Noida, Delhi-NCR on November 29. Sopat GmbH, a cutting-edge technology provider in the field of inline process instrumentation, is proud to be a part of this 3-day trade fair along with its Indian ...
Chemists develop method for simple production of vicinal diamines
Among the most common structures relevant to the function of biologically active molecules, natural products and drugs are so-called vicinal diamines - in particular, unsymmetrically constructed diamines. Vicinal diamines contain two functional atomic groups responsible for the substance ...
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 ...
