Wed 5 Oct 2016. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2016 was awarded jointly to Jean-Pierre Sauvage, University of Strasbourg, France, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart, Northwestern University, USA and Bernard L. Feringa, University of Groningen, the Netherlands, "for the design and synthesis of molecular machines" More




Tue 4 Oct 2016. The Nobel Prize in Physics 2016 was divided, one half awarded to David J. Thouless, University of Washington, USA, the other half jointly to F. Duncan M. Haldane, Princeton University, USA and J. Michael Kosterlitz, Brown University, USA "for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter". More

Mon 19 Sep 2016. New cyclotron used for fundamental and applied research in radiopharmaceutical chemistry. A new particle accelerator is further enhancing the research landscape. It will be used to generate isotopes with a short half-life, which are important for fundamental research but are also required for the medical imaging technique known as positron emission tomography (PET). As it is able to accelerate protons to an energy of 9.6 MeV, the cyclotron can be used to generate the two radioactive elements F-18 and C-11. These will be mainly employed for chemical and pharmaceutical research purposes but are also required for the PET medical diagnostic imaging technique. F-18 and C-11 have short half-lives of just 2 h and 20 min, respectively, which makes it necessary to generate them near the location at which they are to be used to ensure that they are available in sufficient quantities.
