Pulling from outside on disulphite bonds triggers unexpectedly complicated processes. A team headed by Prof Dominik Marx found out what happens in detail during this process. They report their results in “Nature Chemistry”.
The solvent is far more than just the environment for a chemical reaction. A recent study reveals new insights into the role of solvent molecules. Patrick Nürnberger, Elsa Sanchez-Garcia, Wolfram Sander, Walter Thiel and coworkers publish in Nature communications.
Bacteria can transfer energy from one membrane to another. How the proteins responsible for the process are arranged has been a mystery for a long time. Enrica Bordignon and coworkers publish new insights in Nature.
The RESOLV members Prof. Rochus Schmid, Dr. Harun Tüysüz, Prof. Martin Muhler and Prof. Wolfgang Schuhmann publish their work about pentlandite catalysts for hydrogen production in the journal “Nature Communications”.
Using artificial neural networks, RESOLV PI Dr. Jörg Behler and coworkers have examined the atomic interactions of water molecules. They published their work in the journal “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences”.
RESOLV PS Prof. Beatriz Roldan and coworkers have discovered a catalyst that performs highly selective conversion of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into ethylene – an important source material for the chemical industry. They published in Nature communications.
The team of RESOLV PIs Prof. Dominik Marx, Prof. Roland Winter and Prof. Stefan M. Kast from the Technical University Dortmund examined how the interactions between solvents and biomolecules change at high pressure. They report their results in “Angewandte Chemie”.
The team around RESOLV PS Prof. Franz Narberhaus and their colleagues at Helmholtz Center for Infection Research in Braunschweig and Leipzig University developed a new RNA thermometer. They report their results in "PNAS".
