Max Planck Institute for Iron Research At the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research in Düsseldorf about 300 researchers investigate e.g. ways of preventing corrosion that makes many metallic tools unusable with time. Max Planck Institute for Coal Research At the Max Planck Institute for Coal Research in Mülheim a. d. Ruhr work about 300 employees. Scientists explore the catalytic transformation of compounds and materials with the highest degree of chemo-, regio- and stereoselectivity under conditions which maximize efficient use of natural resources. Max Planck Institute for

JACS: RUB chemists explain the fingerprint of dissolved glycine in the Terahertz range - Combination of molecular-dynamics simulations and spectroscopy is key to success. The team led by Prof Dr Martina Havenith-Newen and Prof Dr Dominik Marx published their report in the “Journal of the American Chemical Society”. Chemists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have, for the first time, completely analysed the fingerprint region of the Terahertz spectrum of a biologically relevant molecule in water, in this case, an amino acid. By combining spectroscopy and molecular-dynamics simulations, they
