An ultrafast glimpse of the photochemistry of the atmosphere

15-Oct-2019

Researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have explored the initial consequences of the interaction of light with molecules on the surface of nanoscopic aerosols. The nanocosmos is constantly in motion. All natural processes are ultimately determined by the interplay between ...

DNA repair: Opening the hatch to heal the break

05-Sep-2019

LMU researchers have determined the structure of a key enzyme complex that is involved in DNA repair, and traced the cycle of conformational changes that it undergoes while performing its biochemical function. Various types of DNA damage can have serious repercussions, both for the individual ...

Alzheimer’s disease: Protective immune response in the brain?

02-Sep-2019

LMU researchers Christian Haass and Michael Ewers have identified a factor that might possibly delay the emergence and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Institute for Stroke and Dementia Research (ISD) at ...

One transistor for all purposes

Organic semiconductors

22-Mar-2019

In mobiles, fridges, planes – transistors are everywhere. But they often operate only within a restricted current range. LMU physicists have now developed an organic transistor that functions perfectly under both low and high currents. Transistors are semiconductor devices that control voltage ...

Tiny “blinkers” reveal molecules inside cells

18-Mar-2019

LMU physicists led by Ralf Jungmann introduce an entirely new approach to super-resolution microscopy: Tiny ‘blinkers’ enable simultaneous imaging of multiple biomolecules. In everyday life, blinking lights can send signals – for example, that a car is going to turn. Now, researchers have ...

Solid-state catalysis: Fluctuations clear the way

19-Feb-2019

LMU chemists have identified a mechanism that allows molecules to diffuse rapidly on the already crowded surface of a solid-state catalyst – an important capability, especially for efficient catalysis under industrial conditions. The use of efficient catalytic agents is what makes many technical ...

Defective immune cells in the brain cause Alzheimer’s disease

Scientists are studying the role of immune cell activation in Alzheimer's disease

09-Jan-2019

Mutations of the TREM2 gene can significantly increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Scientists from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich now shed light on the reasons why TREM2 is so important for brain health. They show that ...

Molecular motors: Chemical carousel rotates in the cold

26-Nov-2018

LMU chemists have developed the first molecular motor that can be powered by light alone. Its operation is therefore essentially independent of the temperature. Molecular motors, which rotate unidirectionally in response to an external energy input, constitute an important class of components for ...

Biomimetic chemistry: Carbohydrate capture

27-Aug-2018

LMU chemist Professor Ivan Huc, who heads a research group devoted to the study of Biomimetic Supramolecular Chemistry, has designed and synthesized a molecular structure which features a helical binding pocket that is made-to-measure for the recognition and capture of xylobiose, a member of the ...

The biological role of europium

14-Jun-2018

Rare earth elements (REEs) are an indispensable component of the digital technologies that are now an integral part of our everyday life. Yet their biological role has been discovered only recently. A few years ago it became apparent that these metals are essential elements for methano- and ...
