Photocells, catalysis, batteries? What is the most efficient and sustainable way to capture and convert energy into useful forms? The new Cluster, which will will receive funding from 2019 on, will study the processes that take place at the interfaces between different materials.
For his outstanding achievements in the field of inorganic chemistry, the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh) honors Professor Wolfgang Schnick with the Liebig commemorative coin.
Researchers establish a benchmark for the accurate determination of internal dimensions within individual molecules.
The DNA in the cell nucleus is highly condensed, and genes must be rendered accessible before they can be activated. An LMU team has now described the action of a protein complex that serves as a yardstick to measure lengths of exposed DNA.
LMU chemists have designed and synthesized a helical molecule that specifically recognizes and binds to a disaccharide consisting of two five-carbon sugar units.
