Here we report the use of femtosecond pulses from an X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) to obtain damage-free, room temperature structures of dark-adapted (S1), two-flash illuminated (2F; S3-enriched), and ammonia-bound two-flash illuminated (2F-NH3; S3-enriched) PS II.
UniCat graduate Mehtap Özaslan is establishing a junior research group at the University of Oldenburg
Prof. Dr. Mehtap Özaslan, a former UniCat Ph.D. student in Prof. Peter Strasser’s group, and junior professor of electrocatalysis at the University of Oldenburg, has just been awarded financing from the Federal Ministry of Research to investigate catalysts for fuel cells.
New paper of Martin Kaupp‘s UniCat research group in the journal „Angewandte Chemie“
UniCat Chair Prof. Dr. Matthias Driess has been honored by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to give the renowned Davison Lecture in Cambridge, USA. This Award recognizes individual groundbreaking contributions to Inorganic Chemistry.
Scientists from the Cluster of Excellence “Unifying Concepts in Catalysis” of Berlin University of Technology have won the Prize for Innovation from the German Gas Industry.
Here, we report on structure-reactivity trends for cyclohexane oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) with silica supported copper oxide catalysts as a function of surface structure. Copper oxide was supported on mesostructured KIT-6 silica at low surface densities 300 nm as well as Cu+ LMCT bands at 235, 296, and 312 nm. Counterintuitively, EXAFS analysis shows that the multinuclear precursor leads to fewer average Cu–Cu interactions than syntheses with mononuclear copper salt precursors.
The winners of the 2016 Meira and Shaul G. Massry Prize are a trio of scientists — Gero Miesenboeck, Peter Hegemann, and Karl Deisseroth — whose research paved the way for a breakthrough technology called optogenetics that has revolutionized the way scientists study the brain.
Former BIG-NSE fellow has become Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at Auburn University in Alabama (USA).
Prof. Dr. Kallol Ray and Clara Immerwahr Awardee Dr. Anna Company have published a paper on characterization and reactivity terminal copper–nitrene species. It has resulted from the scientific stay of Ms Teresa Corono in Kallol Ray’s group for a period of four months. Her stay was funded by the Clara Immerwahr Award to Dr. Anna Company. This paper has been selected as a hot paper in Angewandte Chemie International Edition.
Dr. Amandine Guiet a former BIG-NSE fellow in the group of Prof. Anna Fischer has accepted an offer as “Maitre de Conférence” at Université du Maine at Le Mans in France.
