The grapevine disease “Esca“ can be effectively combated – thanks to special capsules made of lignin that are loaded with a fungicide. Prof. Dr. Frederik Wurm's working group, together with Prof. Dr. Katharina Landfester, began scientific analyses of the nanocapsules in 2015. [more]
During their walk act, PET recycling is impressively demonstrated with a specially designed shredding machine and on stage they show what science has to consider with their acting skills and a lot of humor. Many thanks to Hannah Lerch and Marvin Meinold from [more]
First, active nanocapsules with a polymer cell membrane must be built for this. Here, the nanocapsules form individual compartments that mimic the functions of a biological cell. [more]
Only when this has been achieved, the nanocapsules – loaded with active ingredients – can go to the next stage in the process and undergo preclinical studies. The goal is to develop transport vehicles that can be injected into humans to treat numerous diseases. [more]
Diagnosis and therapy of diseases are the focus of research in nanomedicine. This is where research is trying to find ways that can provide patients with relief or even healing. [more]
In just a series of small steps the short documentary shows how many wooden slats made out of oak can be layered, bent and glued together so that the whole structure obtains its shape and finally its stability. The completed coil has been exhibited on our trail since November. [more]
After several months of building the amorphous structure, it could be transported to Mainz and set up last November. [more]
The assembly of the struts prefabricated in the wood workshop was not an easy endeavor: many helpers were needed to join the numerous struts together and bring them into plumb. [more]
With a lot of preliminary planning work, it was possible to get down to fine-tuning, sawing and drilling in the carpenter's workshop, so that the construction could then be erected over several weeks. [more]
Two experts explain to us how the technical cycle in PET recycling works: Philipp Langhammer from the company KHS and Prof. Kurt Kremer from MPI-P. [more]
