It’s time for another round of the FAU student survey (FAU-St). Until 13 June, students will once more be able to evaluate their studies at FAU. This year, the study will also focus on digital teaching and online examinations. Other topics it will cover include general conditions for studying and sp...

The acidity of molecules can be easily determined, but until now it was not possible to measure this important property for atoms on a surface. By combining a new microscopy technique and quantum chemical calculations, this has now been achieved. The degree of acidity or alkalinity of a substance...

Chemists at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg publish a breakthrough in magnesium chemistry in the highly renowned journal Nature. Magnesium (Mg) is an earth abundant early main group metal of low electronegativity that easily loses it’s both valence electrons. In combination w...

Prodrugs are substances that only release their effects once they have been metabolised. The prodrugs of the FAU research team led by Prof. Dr. Andriy Mokhir, Professorship of Organic Chemistry, are activated in the organism by means of a chemical reaction with specific molecules that contain oxygen...

The Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 1452 - "Catalysis at liquid interfaces (CLINT)" calls for applications for an Equal Opportunity Fellowship for female students who will start their master studies at FAU in the winter semester 2021/22. Female students of the programs MSc. Chemistry and MSc. Mo...

Molecular nitrogen (N2) is a highly stable gas with a N≡N triple bond that is among one of the strongest known chemical bonds. It reacts with hardly anything and is used as a protective gas for food storage. Being the main component of air, it is also used by plants as a nitrogen source. However, in...

Why are the red, yellow, and blue colours used in the world’s oldest knotted-pile carpet still so vivid and bright, even after almost two and a half thousand years? Researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg have now been able to uncover the secrets behind the so-called Pazyryk...

The extent to which smear infections are responsible for the spread of the coronavirus has not yet been sufficiently scientifically clarified. The research group of Prof. Dr. Karl Mandel, Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy, FAU, is investigating how infectio...
