Programmable synthetic materials In DNA, information is stored in the sequence of chemical building blocks; in computers, information consists of sequences of zeros and ones. Researchers want to transfer this concept to artificial molecules.Artificial molecules could one day form the information unit of a new type of computer or be the basis for programmable substances. The information would be encoded... read more
Bacterial enzymes are often powerful but also very sensitive catalysts. To call up their performance, they therefore need a special environment.Researchers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have developed new techniques for efficiently coupling bacterial enzymes to electrodes. Together with a team from the University of Utah, they realised a system for ammonia synthesis based on a nitrogenase enzyme.... read more
High Distinction for two Materials Chain Scientists
Developing new materials: Junior Professor Michael Giese does this just like Lecturer Dr. Bilal Gökce - but in very different ways. For their outstanding research, the two chemists from the Materials Chain at University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) have been accepted into the Heisenberg Program of the German Research Foundation (DFG). Funding is being provided for Giese's project "Supramolecular liquid... read more

The 3rd Materials Chain International Conference, MCIC 2020, will take place from November 25-26, 2020 at Ruhr-Universität Bochum. The core topics, 2D and hybrid fuctional materials, Materials for energy conversion, Data driven and combinatorial materials science, Production engineering and additive manufacturing and Metals, alloys and magnetism, reflect the breadth of materials research from atoms to products within the UA Ruhr.
