JACS: In catalysis, nature is sometimes more efficient than artificial systems. Researchers have copied one of the tricks.
Adv. Energy Mater.: Affordable high-performance catalysts have come within reach.
Structure: Some molecules change their spatial structure when exposed to light – in other words, they look different in light and darkness. What exactly happens during the conversion has not yet been researched in detail.
Cell Death Differ.: The protein Bax is responsible for programmed cell death. Because it is constantly changing its location, its structure has so far been difficult to determine.
Nat. Energy: The semi-artificial system is constructed like a Lego box – which opens up a wide range of applications for the future.
Chem. Sci.: Researchers use a trick to prevent a ring from forming when droplets dry. This has far-reaching consequences.
Nat. Comm.: The mechanism protects sensitive enzymes from oxygen. It obtains its energy from sugar.
Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.: The findings could help save carbon dioxide in the future.
Nat. Rev. Chem.: In nature, enzymes are mostly made of proteins. This might change in a not too distant future, according to a review article published by a research team from Bochum.
Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.: Seemingly simple questions about the hydration shell of charged particles remained unanswered for a long time. Until this new analysis arrived.
