Nitrogen – an exception in the periodic system?

New high-pressure material discovered and a puzzle of the periodic table solved

03-Jun-2020

In the periodic table of elements there is one golden rule for carbon, oxygen, and other light elements. Under high pressures they have similar structures to heavier elements in the same group of elements. Only nitrogen always seemed unwilling to toe the line. However, high-pressure researchers ...

New catalyst: easy on resources, less expensive, and highly selective

02-Dec-2019

Chemists at the University of Bayreuth have developed a sustainable, inexpensive, and at the same time potent catalytic process: it requires no rare precious metals and enables the targeted production of many fine chemicals, natural products, and medical agents. This opens up a broad spectrum of ...

On the trail of self-healing processes

Biochemists reveal insights into extraordinary regenerative ability

25-Sep-2019

Planarians are flatworms with the extraordinary ability to restore wounded or missing parts of their body. It has long been known that a particular group of proteins – known as PIWI proteins – are essential for this ability to regenerate. A team of researchers at the University of Bayreuth led by ...

Extremely hard yet metallically conductive

Novel material with high-tech prospects

09-Jul-2019

An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bayreuth has identified a previously unknown material at DESY: Rhenium nitride pernitride. Thanks to a combination of properties that were previously considered incompatible, it looks set to become highly attractive for ...

Biologists develop new method of cloning

High efficiency at low cost

19-Mar-2019

DNA, which contains the genetic information of an organism, consists of long “chains” of nucleotides. In order to study the functions based on the sequence of these building blocks, DNA molecules must be inserted in carrier molecules (plasmid-vectors) to be multiplied. For this cloning process, a ...

Chaos that will keep you warm: Researchers improve heat insulation using deliberate chaos

04-Apr-2018

Powder is extremely well-suited for thermal insulation when there is a jumble of different sized nanoparticles in it. This was discovered by a research group at the University of Bayreuth led by Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch. The scientists were able to determine how the thermal conductivity of powder ...

A way to control the colour of OLEDs

27-Mar-2018

Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are used in smartphones and televisions to facilitate the high-contrast display of colours. Conjugated polymers are also often employed as organic semiconductors in such diodes. Researchers at the University of Bayreuth have found out how the spatial ...

New insights about our Earth’s lower mantle

Scientists X-ray the most abundant mineral of Earth

21-Jul-2016

Using DESY's bright X-ray light source PETRA III, a team of scientists has discovered unexpected facts about the most abundant mineral on Earth. The mineral bridgmanite makes up roughly one third of Earth’s entire volume and is the major component of Earth’s lower mantle. Thus, its physical ...
