The University of Bayreuth supports research in the forefront of structural biology applied to molecular medicine, a field that was very successful in recent years. Scientists at this university focus, among others, on the development of antiviral drugs, novel antibiotics and strategies against allergies. These projects rely heavily on the world’s most powerful, high-resolution 1-GHz nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer, the second spectrometer of this field strength worldwide, after one that is located in Lyon/France. In contrast to the installation in Lyon, the Bayreuth spectrometer is a new generation instrument.“The potential for basic and applied research in the field of molecular medicine based on structural biology techniques at the University of Bayreuth is...Powered by WP

In Germany, 3 million tons of packaging waste is produced annually. How can high value secondary raw materials be recovered from this waste? Is it possible to produce new packaging materials from used packaging? These questions are addressed in a new research project managed by professors of the Pforzheim University. In project “Marker based sorting and recycling system for plastic packaging” (MaReK) professors Dr.-Ing. Claus Lang-Koetz and Dr.-Ing. Jörg Woidasky are collaborating with several industrial partners and one research partner in order to develop a new sorting system for plastic. The project was formally started earlier this month with a Kick-Off meeting at Pforzheim University.In Germany, 3 million tons of packaging waste is produced annually. Packaging is discarded daily in ea

The breaking point

It is said that a weak link determines the strength of the entire chain. Likewise, defects or small cracks in a solid material may ultimately determine the strength of that material - how well it will withstand various forces. For example, if force is exerted on a material containing a crack, large internal stresses concentrate on a small region near the crack's edge. When this happens, a failure process is initiated, and the material might begin to fail around the edge of the crack, which could then propagate, leading to the ultimate failure of the material.What, exactly, happens right around the edge of the crack, in the area in which those large stresses are concentrated? Prof. Eran Bouchbinder of the Weizmann...Powered by WPeMatico
