Nat.Comm.: Oxygen is the greatest enemy of biocatalysts for energy conversion. A protective film shields them – but only with an additional ingredient: iodide salt.
Angew.Chem.: Electrocatalysts can help to obtain chemicals from renewable raw materials or to use alternative energy sources. But testing new catalysts brings challenges.
PNAS: Proteins can expel active pharmaceutical ingredients from the target cells. Now we can watch them as they do it.
Angew.Chem.: A new concept makes it possible to identify the most promising among an abundance of possible element combinations.
Nat. Cat.: Science has come a long way, but there are still some obstacles that prevent a breakthrough.
JACS: New findings are expected to help protect the hydrogen-producing enzymes from harmful oxygen - which is interesting for biotechnological applications.
JACS: Oxygen threatens sustainable catalysts that use hydrogen to produce electricity in fuel cells. Researchers from Bochum and Marseille have developed a way to combat this.
Angew. Chem.: Noble-metal-free nanoparticles could serve as catalysts for the production of hydrogen from water. Because they are so small, their properties are difficult to determine.
JACS: Enzymes use cascade reactions to produce complex molecules from comparatively simple raw materials. Researchers have now copied this principle.
Angew. Chem.: Green light affects this chemical compound in a different way than blue light. The molecule is of interest to computer industry as it can be easily controlled.
