New method for the technological use of 2D nanomaterials

02-Jun-2022

Nanosheets are finely structured two-dimensional materials and have great potential for innovation. They are fixed on top of each other in layered crystals, and must first be separated from each other so that they can be used, for example, to filter gas mixtures or for efficient gas barriers. A ...

Supposedly similar microplastic particles show different levels of toxicity

"Our study impressively shows how problematic it is to make generalised statements about the health or ecological effects of microplastics"

16-Dec-2021

More and more studies worldwide are looking into the effects of microplastics, especially with regard to the environment and health. They often use spherical polystyrene microparticles and have arrived at partly contradictory results. An interdisciplinary research team at the University of ...

Pathogenic fungi colonise microplastics in soils

Possible cause of an increase in fungal infections?

21-Jul-2021

Representatives of numerous pathogenic fungal species are finding new habitat on microplastic particles in the soil and could thus be one of the possible causes of an increase in fungal infections. Researchers from Bayreuth, Hannover and Munich demonstrated this in a new study. Using ...

Novel tools for biomedical applications: Bacterial magnetic nanoparticles

Developed and optimised a process for the isolation and purification of these particles from bacterial cells

22-Feb-2021

Magnetic nanoparticles biosynthesized by bacteria might soon play an important role in biomedicine and biotechnology. Researchers of the University of Bayreuth have now developed and optimised a process for the isolation and purification of these particles from bacterial cells. In initial tests, ...
