News Research Highlights

A team of six UniSysCat groups discovered a promising recyclable catalyst for cross-couplings by combining a nickel catalyst and a photocatalyst in a single material.

A team of UniSysCat researchers presents a simple method for the screening of the photocatalytic activity of up to four catalysts in parallel – a method that may save a lot of time in the lab.

A team of UniSysCat researchers developed a powerful electrode material for the electrolysis of alcohol, aldehyde and water: plasma-modified nickel foam.

A research team around UniSysCat group leader Prof. Roldán Cuenya from FHI Berlin provides insights into size effects and structural changes important for the activity of cobalt oxide nanoparticles at work.

A team of UniSysCat researchers found a coupling scheme for the ATP-driven electron transfer in the double-cubane cluster protein and its associated metalloenzyme based on the structure of their complex.

A team of UniSysCat researchers developed a very efficient Ca−Fe−O catalyst for electrocatalytic water splitting. They also could elaborate the critical role of Calcium in the process.

Two papers in Angewandte Chemie involving several UniSysCat groups show the versatility of Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs) as materials for coupled photo- and electrocatalysis.

A recent operando study involving the UniSysCat group of Beatriz Roldan Cuenya reveals decisive parameters in the electrochemical CO2 reduction reaction that were previously not understood.

A research team from the group of UniSysCat member Prof. Martin Oestreich introduced a deuteration technique by which otherwise expensive or noncommercially available NMR solvents can be prepared.

A research team including the group of UniSysCat member Adam Lange from FMP Berlin could directly visualize the ions in a variety of different ion channels under near-native conditions using solid-state NMR spectroscopy and…
