Mainz physicists propose a new method for monitoring nuclear waste

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) New scientific findings suggest neutrino detectors may play an important role in ensuring better monitoring and safer storage of radioactive material in nuclear waste repository sites.

New proton record: Researchers measure magnetic moment with greatest possible precision

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) The magnetic moment of an individual proton is inconceivably small, but can still be quantified. By determining the magnetic moment of the proton to ten decimal places, which is the most precise measurement currently available, physicists from Germany and Japan set yet another record.

Electrochemistry opens up novel access to important classes of substances

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Chemists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany have succeeded in overcoming the problem of electrochemical polymer formation and in developing a sustainable and efficient synthesis strategy for these important products for the first time.

Horizon 2020: EUR 1.8 million for Mainz researchers

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) The University Medical Center of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) will be receiving a total of EUR 1.8 million in the new round of the EU's Horizon 2020 framework program for research and innovation.

Quantum computing on the move

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) The work by Kaufmann and coworkers appeared in the high rank international journal Physical Review Letters 119, 150503 and marks a decisive milestone for bringing this idea for scaling up quantum computers into the realm of feasibility.

Method of accelerating the maturation of stem cells to form neurons discovered

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Researchers at the University Medical Center of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) have developed a promising technique that will facilitate the differentiation of stem cells into neuro...

Chromosomes may be knotted

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Little is known about the structures of our genetic material, chromosomes, which consist of long strings that -- according to our experience -- should be likely to become knotted. However, up to now it has not been possible to study this experimentally. Show More Summary

Riddle of matter remains unsolved: Proton and antiproton share fundamental properties

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Physicists in the BASE collaboration at the CERN research center have been able to measure the magnetic force of antiprotons with almost unbelievable precision.

Waste from paper industry supplies raw material for development of redox flow batteries

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Researchers at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) are participating in a joint project that aims to develop new electrolytes for redox flow batteries based on lignin, which is a waste product of the wood pulp manufacturing process.

New electro-organic synthesis allows sustainable and green production of fine chemicals

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) In the cooperative EPSYLON research project, scientists from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) and Evonik Performance Materials GmbH have succeeded in developing a state-of-the-art and innovative electro-organic synthesis.

German Excellence Strategy: Mainz University to submit full proposal for PRISMA+

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) started successfully in the Excellence Strategy competition of the German federal and state governments. JGU will enter the final round with a full proposal for the PRISMA+ Cluster of Excellence.

Why we did not evolve to live forever: Unveiling the mystery of why we age

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Researchers at the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) in Mainz, Germany, have made a breakthrough in understanding the origin of the ageing process. They have identified that genes belongingShow More Summary

German scientists question study about plastic-eating caterpillars

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Do the larvae of the wax moth really solve the world's plastic problem? Sensational report of biochemical degradation of polyethylene by caterpillars not confirmed.

Imaging how magnetism goes surfing

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Using advanced dynamic imaging, researchers have been able to visualise deformation (sound) waves in crystals and measured the effect on nanomagnetic elements. This offers new low power magnetization...Show More Summary

Multifunctional nano-sized drug carriers based on reactive polypept(o)ides

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) In cooperation with researchers from the University of Tokyo and Gutenberg Research Awardee Prof. Kazunori Kataoka, Chemists from Mainz have been able to demonstrate that reactive polypept(o)ides constitute ideal building blocks to control morphology and function of carrier systems in a simple but precise manner.

Chemical profile of ants adapts rapidly

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Biologists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany recently established that ants can adapt their hydrocarbon profile quickly during the course of evolution and rapidly adapt to external selection pressures.

New theory on the origin of dark matter

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Scientists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany have come up with a new theory on how dark matter may have been formed shortly after the origin of the universe. This new model proposes an alternative to the WIMP paradigm that is the subject of various experiments in current research.

Mainz-based researchers stabilized gold in very rare oxidation state +II

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) A team of chemists led by Professor Katja Heinze at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry of JGU has been able to isolate and analyze gold in the very rare oxidation state +II. Show More Summary

Modern domestic dog has a single geographic origin

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) By analyzing the DNA of two prehistoric dogs from Germany, an international research team has determined that their genomes were the probable ancestors of modern European dogs. The study also suggests that all contemporary dogs have a common origin and emerged through a single domestication process of wolves 20,000 to 40,000 years ago.

German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds research on jihadist videos

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) As part of the Research for Civil Security 2012-2017 framework program of the German Federal Government, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is providing €2.7 million to the junior research group on 'Jihadism on the Internet' at the Department of Anthropology and African Studies at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.
