Science communication takes many forms. One very special form remains the annual ‘Dance your PhD’ competition, with this year’s chemistry winner depicting Metal Organic Framework research to rap music.
Researchers from Nijmegen can now experimentally show that macromolecular crowding occurs in mitochondria.
Leiden astronomers find evidence that water on Earth outdates than the Sun.
Researchers at Aarhus University have used cryo-EM to gain a better understanding of the folding process that dictates RNA origami.
Plants lack the ability to develop antibodies against a new virus. British researchers present a new concept: synthetic immune receptors ‘on demand’.
When cyclometallation ligands are used around iron(III), it has an excited state that lasts a thousand times longer.
Groningen researchers have elucidated the polymerisation of polydopamine, which is similar to the substance that mussels use to stick to anything.
The model behind hydrogen bonds and similar complexes is fundamentally flawed.
To preserve their mummies, the ancient Egyptians imported resins from Southeast Asia. An early example of globalisation.
A European consortium is investigating whether it is possible to accelerate the weathering of silicate rocks in a reactor.
If there has been an attack with chemical weapons somewhere, you should be able to see it in the leaves of plants.
Texel researchers demonstrate via carbon isotopes that the bacterium Rhodococcus ruber can eat polyethylene.
AMOLF researchers describe their nanostructured metamaterials that can perform mathematical operations.
PhD students and postdocs working in chemical laboratories at WUR will find it much easier to extend their contracts from this year onwards.
Groningen researchers have found an easier way to make alkenes where the functional groups are on the same side.
For the first time, a number of substances from the mushroom family Ganoderma have been produced via total synthesis.
Leuven researchers combine polymers and zeolite in a membrane matrix for superefficient gas separation.
Despite the fact that lignin has been analysed for quite some time, it is still a considerable challenge to map the branches properly.
