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..

Great interest in the 3rd CeNTech Science Breakfast

More than 60 researchers and entrepreneurs from the Münster region were present at this year's "CeNTech Science Breakfast" which was dedicated to the current expansion of the Science Park Münster in which the CeNTech is imbedded. Prof. Jan Bart Ravoo and Prof. Michael Schäfers presented the research activities of the neighbouring new Center for Soft Nanoscience (SoN) and the Multiscale Imaging Centre (MIC, due to be completed in 2019). From the Münster Battery Research Center (MEET) Dr. Markus Börner talked about the latest research. Established companies from the neighbourhood like ION-TOF (Sven Kayser) as well as the CeNTech start-up PolyTaksys (Dr. Christian Althaus) and the research group from Prof. Carsten Schuck reported on their current R&D activities. Prof. Fuchs emphasized how valuable informative events like this are for new opportunities for cooperation.
