Matthias Driess and his co-workers from the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, report on a silicon-mediated direct coupling of carbon monoxide, ammonia and primary amines to form acetamides which are central in organic...

Nediljko Budisa and his team engineer aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRSs) to provide access to the ribosomal incorporation of noncanonical amino acids. The researchers achieved a high-activity enzyme variant for photocaged...

UniSysCat researchers have developed hierarchically porous covalent organic frameworks (COFs) for the first time.

A collaborative study of two UniSysCat groups of the principal investigators Patrick Scheerer (Charitè-Universitätsmedizin Berlin) and Peter Hegemann (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) showed the structure-based design and...

Two UniSysCat research groups joined their efforts to obtain experimental evidence for vibrational energy transfer in proteins. In computer simulations, mapping energy transfer is fairly easy - but experimental evidence is...

In a joined collaboration, the groups of Lauterbach and Nestl designed an enzymatic cascade for the H2-driven synthesis of nitrogen-heterocycles.
