LMU researchers have developed a method that enables cell-surface receptors to be switched on and off at will. The technique promises to provide new insights into receptor functions and their effects on intracellular signaling pathways.
Scientists at LMU and TUM have developed a novel electric propulsion technology for nanorobots. It allows molecular machines to move a hundred thousand times faster than with the biochemical processes used to date.
RNA was probably the first informational molecule. Now LMU chemists have demonstrated that alternation of wet and dry conditions could have sufficed to drive the prebiotic synthesis of the RNA nucleosides found in all domains of life.
Photonic crystals comprising very few layers of 2D-nanosheets and nanoparticles or two alternating nanosheet materials represent a new generation of ultrathin humidity sensors. NIM chemist Prof Dr Bettina Lotsch and her team have developed functional colorimetric sensing materials with increased sensitivity, better optical quality and reduced production cost.
