The new Titan Krios electron microscope has been put into operation at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. In 2017, the University of Cologne obtained a large-scale equipment grant of 5 million euros from the German Research Foundation (DFG) to launch a central platform for molecular cryo-EM StruBiTEM (structural biology cryo-transmission electron microscopy).
Bioinformatics team develops method that enables fast and confident identification of small molecules.
Researchers at Freie Universität Berlin developed new approach for producing phosgene. Scientists at Freie Universität Berlin have developed a new type of process for the industrial production of basic chemicals.
Researchers look for materials for the future. A mobile phone is full of raw materials: its electronic components contain valuable precious metals, such as gold, silver and platinum, rare metals, like cobalt, gallium or indium, and rare-earth elements, such as neodymium.
An international research team led by Professor Stephanie Grond from the Institute of Organic Chemistry at the University of Tübingen has found that the natural substance collinolactone reduces artificially-induced stress on nerve cells, protecting them from the kind of damage that occurs in neurodegenerative diseases.
