An interdisciplinary team presents for the first time a laser-driven technology that enables them to create nanoparticles such as copper, cobalt and nickel oxides. At the usual printing speed, photoelectrodes are produced in this way, for example, for a wide range of applications such as the generation of green hydrogen. more

Chemists have synthesized sugar chains that resemble the envelopes of the four major variations of the bacterium streptococcus suis. An important first step for the development of glycoconjugate vaccines against a pathogen that is a serious problem in pigs. more

Researchers developed a membrane composed of a bundle of nanometer-sized tubes using it as a nanoreactor to convert water marked with methylene blue into clear water in milliseconds using sunlight as a driver. more

This election is “a lifetime appointment” and "the highest honor bestowed on the world's most distinguished chemists". Antonietti is now one of 60 Honorary Fellows, 20 of whom are from Europe and five from Germany. more
