Organotextile catalysis: molecules get in touch with cloth

Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung James, Thomas; Lindner, Monika; Gombert, Sarah-Lena; List, Benjamin
Current research at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim has made significant advances in heterogeneous organocatalysis which has resulted in the discovery of a widely applicable method allowing the covalent immobilisation of organic catalysts on textiles. This approach has resulted in the development of nylon textiles which efficiently catalyse chemical reactions and which can be easily recycled for over 200 reaction cycles. more
During the last three decades mass spectrometry has developed into one of the most important analytical techniques that allows following chemical reactions and transformations. Especially, modern methods with ultrahigh resolution capabilities allow the investigation of very complex systems in catalysis and energy research and give exciting insights into the different chemical steps. more
Florence is generally regarded as a Renaissance city, in fact even as the Renaissance powerhouse par excellence. In which light does this topos appear if Florentine urban space is placed at the focus of consideration? more
