Self-organizing molecules Nanorings with two sides
The tiny rings that chemists at the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) create in the laboratory are as small as a bacterium. Self-organized, individual polymer chains form the flexible structures that can even squeeze themselves through cell membranes. This would enable them to deliver active substances in a very targeted manner. The renowned scientific journal ACS Nano reports on this in its current issue.
UA-Ruhr: Second International Conference of the flagship program Materials Chain From materials synthesis to production
How will the materials of the future look like, and what technologies will be used to manufacture the products made from them? These questions will be addressed by the second International Materials Chain Conference MCIC 2018, hosted by the University Alliance Ruhr’s (UA Ruhr) flagship program Materials Chain from November 12-14 at Ruhr-Universität Bochum’s Convention Centre.
Workshop SpinS-2019 Experts in Nanomagnetism at UDE
More than 40 experts in physics, chemistry and materials science from 12 countries meet in “Die Wolfsburg” Academy in Mülheim an der Ruhr on 2-4 October 2019. They share their research results and discuss new concepts in nanomagnetism and its applications, like energy-efficient computing and magnetic refrigeration.
