Synthesis of Inorganic Heteroalkenes

Future options for storing CO2 Synthesis of Inorganic Heteroalkenes

Group 13/15 heteroalkenes RMER' with M-E double bonds (M = B-Tl; E = N-Bi) offer promising potential for bond activation reactions, but they are difficult to prepare. A team led by CENIDE professor Stephan Schulz now describes new synthetic methods for group 13 metallapnictenes in no less than three articles in the journal "Angewandte Chemie". They allow for the preparation of preparative amounts as a basis for systematic reactivity studies.

2.3 Million € for Battery Project by UDE and Evonik Better Anode Material for Lithium Ion Batteries

It is expected to be market-ready by 2023: Anode material for lithium ion batteries, leading to more powerful energy storage systems. The material has already been tested in the laboratories of the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE). Since September 1, the German Federal Ministry of Economics is funding UDE with almost 1.7 million Euro to further develop the synthesis process in a joint project with Evonik and transfer it to industrial scale.

Catalytic Activity of Individual Particles

Robotic Arm Helps with Analysis Catalytic Activity of Individual Particles

Analyzing tiny nanoparticles separately is a challenge.A team from the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) and Ruhr-Universität Bochum has developed a new technique that could make the process much easier. The journal "Angewandte Chemie" covers the method in its latest issue.
