Efficient conversion of biomass by mechanocatalysis

CeNTech scientists headed by Dr. Saeed Amirjalayer and Prof. Harald Fuchs have succeeded in identifying a new reaction mechanism in which cellulose - being the largest fraction of the natural carbon storage in biomass - can be converted highly efficiently using mechanical force. The nano-scientists could elucidate the influence of mechanical force on the individual steps of the so-called hydrolysis reaction by atomistic modelling. The researchers demonstrate the exceptional potential of applying mechanical force to develop an efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective process for the conversion of biomass. This study has now been published in Angewandte Chemie Int Ed..

Nature Communications: Novel concept for ultrahigh detectivity phototransistors

CeNTech researchers of the group of Prof. Harald Fuchs in collaboration with their Chinese partners (TRR61 project) developed a novel concept for molecular phototransistors with unprecedentedly efficiency. The efficient conversion of light into an electrical signal is of particular importance for optoelectronic application like imaging applications or biomedical sensing. The results have been published in the latest issue of the journal "Nature Communications".

2 million euros for project initiated by the CeNTech high-tech startup EVORION

EVORION Biotechnologies GmbH located at CeNTech received a 2 million € grant from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). EVORION develops high-performance cell culture and analysis systems for the precise characterization of cells and tissues in cancer research. Partners within the “KMU Innovation” BMBF project are the group of Prof. Wolfram Pernice and the Fluorescence Microscopy Facility Münster (FM)² as part of the group of Prof. Jürgen Klingauf, both located at CeNTech. "The unique and interdisciplinary environment at CeNTech was a key factor for us to establish this excellent consortium”, stated Dr. Sebastian Bühren (co-founder of EVORION).
