New nanocomposite protects from corrosion at high mechanical stress

Material researchers present a composite material which prevents metal corrosion in an environmentally friendly way, even under extreme conditions. It can be used wherever metals are exposed to severe weather conditions, aggressive gases, media containing salt, heavy wear or high pressures.

Einmaliger Einblick ins Molekül

Prozesse, die auf atomarer Grössenskala ablaufen, lassen sich nur mit den Gesetzen der Quantenmechanik genau beschreiben. Physikern der Universität Würzburg ist es jetzt erstmals experimentell gelungen, den Zustand eines solchen quantenmechanischen Systems vollständig zu erfassen.

Nanotechnology researchers develop 'onion' vesicles for drug delivery

Researchers have shown that a certain kind of dendrimer, a molecule that features tree-like branches, offers a simple way of creating vesicles and tailoring their diameter and thickness. Moreover, these dendrimer-based vesicles self-assemble with concentric layers of membranes, much like an onion.

Viewing plant cells in 3-D (no glasses required)

Focused ion beam-scanning electron microscopy (FIB-SEM) has been used in both materials science and in the study of animal tissue, but has not previously been used in plant imaging. Researchers have modified existing FIB-SEM protocols and optimized these for plant tissue and cellular studies, shedding new light on plant cell architecture.
