News Research Highlights

In a recent study, a team of UniSysCat researchers investigated the extent to which their heterostructured electrocatalysts based on non-noble metals can actually compete with noble metals when operated for longer times.

Scientists from BasCat (UniCat BASF JointLab) and the Fritz Haber Institute developed an accelerated discovery approach for the catalytic production of propylene that can compete with a procedure developed over decades.

The research group of Ariane Nunes Alves studied the pathways of hydrogen and inhibitory gases through a selected hydrogenase in order to improve its inhibitor resistance for clean energy applications.

By combining different spectroscopy methods, the UniSysCat groups of Holger Dau, Peter Hildebrandt and Kallol Ray have gained new insights into the function of the active site of the enzyme SOR.

UniSysCat researchers design surfaces with asymmetric metal pairs to promote electrochemical valorization of CO2 into multicarbon e-chemicals.

UniSysCat group leader Martin Oestreich and coworkers just published a paper in Nature on a catalytic halodealkylation of fully alkylated silanes by making use of a sacrificial Friedel–Crafts reaction.

Rhomboid proteases are promising targets for drug development. Researchers from the Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) and UniSysCat have published new findings about them in Science Advances.

An article by UniSysCat researchers and collaborators was published in Nature Communications. It sheds light on the mechanism of Plasmodium falciparum chloroquine resistance transporter (PfCRT).

UniSysCat group leaders Majd Al-Naji and Markus Antonietti published a paper in “ChemSusChem”, which was also featured on the cover with creative artwork showing circular plastics economy.

UniSysCat researchers revealed atomistic details on the mechanism of photosynthetic oxygen formation – just published in two articles in “Nature”
