Wrapping up hydrophobic hydration

Studied in detail, the embedding of hydrophobic molecules in water looks quite different than previously assumed

01-Jul-2020

In water, hydrophobic molecules are surrounded by a two different water populations: the inner shell forms a two-dimensional network of water molecules. The next layer is formed by a second water population that is almost bulk like but forms slightly stronger hydrogen bonds to the bulk water. The ...

RNA structures by the thousands

New method to determine the structures of all RNA molecules in a bacterial cell at once: In the past, it would have taken many research careers

19-Jun-2020

Every cell contains thousands of different RNA molecules. In the past, it would have taken many research careers to decipher their structures using traditional methods. But not anymore. Researchers from Bochum and Münster have developed a new method to determine the structures of all RNA ...

Water molecules dance in three

Scientists shed new light on the properties of water at the molecular level

27-Apr-2020

Water may look like a simple liquid. However, it is anything but simple to analyse. The unique properties of water are only understandable, if scientists observe the interaction of the molecules. An international team of scientists lead by Professor Martina Havenith from Ruhr-Universität Bochum ...

Artificial intelligence identifies optimal material formula

One algorithm replaces countless time-consuming experiments

30-Mar-2020

Nanostructured layers boast countless potential properties – but how can the most suitable one be identified without any long-term experiments? A team from the Materials Discovery Department at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) has ventured a shortcut: using a machine learning algorithm, the ...

Iodide salts stabilise biocatalysts for fuel cells

18-Feb-2020

Oxygen is the greatest enemy of biocatalysts for energy conversion. A protective film shields them – but only with an additional ingredient: iodide salt. Contrary to theoretical predictions, oxygen inactivates biocatalysts for energy conversion within a short time, even under a protective film. A ...

Observing proteins in their natural environment

11-Feb-2020

Proteins can be responsible for the fact that the active ingredients of drugs are simply released from the target cells. You can watch them do this now. Certain medications, such as those used to treat cancer, lose their effect because proteins in the membrane of the target cell simply expel them ...

New findings on the recycling centres of cells

11-Oct-2019

Like tiny garbage chutes, certain organelles clean cells of superfluous or defective material. Researchers are currently studying the mechanisms underlying this process. Both animal and plant cells depend on their own damaged or superfluous cell material being removed – a process referred to as ...

New approaches to heal injured nerves

27-Aug-2019

Preventing the deactivation of a protein could be the key to repairing the central nervous system. Injuries to nerve fibers in the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves usually result in functional losses as the nerve fibers are unable to regenerate. A team from the Department of Cell Physiology ...

How two water molecules dance together

14-Aug-2019

Although water is omnipresent, the interaction between individual water molecules is not yet fully understood. An international research team has gained new insights into how water molecules interact. For the first time, the researchers were able to completely observe all of the movements between ...

High reaction rates even without precious metals

21-Jun-2019

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. Non-precious metal nanoparticles could one day replace expensive catalysts for hydrogen production. However, it is ...
