Merck KGaA and DELO Industrial Adhesives announced today that they have formed a strategic partnership in the field of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology. Within the scope of their agreement, the companies plan to develop future system solutions for OLED applications. The companies will join forces to market OLED adhesive products from DELO through Merck’s extensive marketing and sales channels.

In addition, Merck and DELO intend to develop innovative materials for improved OLED sealants that will facilitate the entry of OLEDs into large-format display applications. OLEDs show a high potential as the display technology of tomorrow and already are being used in MP3 players and cell phones. Within the OLED technology, Merck offers light-emitting materials while DELO offers new adhesive systems required to produce OLEDs.
Merck’s OLED materials are characterized by high quantum efficiency and longevity and the adhesives developed by DELO reliably seal off the sensitive metal layers from oxygen and moisture. This considerably extends the life of OLEDs.
About DELO Industrial Adhesives:
DELO Industrial Adhesives, located in Windach near Munich, Germany, manufactures customized industrial adhesives for applications within industries such as electronics, micro-electronics, chip-card, automotive, glass, plastic processing and optics. The company has 210 employees (status: March 31st, 2008) and a network of global agents and representative offices in Asia, the United States and Europe. Its OLED products focus on improved protection against humidity and oxygen, increased humidity resistance as well as simplified processing and curing.
Merck is a global pharmaceutical and chemical company with total revenues of € 7.1 billion in 2007, a history that began in 1668, and a future shaped by 31,681 employees in 60 countries. Its success is characterized by innovations from entrepreneurial employees. Merck's operating activities come under the umbrella of Merck KGaA, in which the Merck family holds an approximately 70% interest and free shareholders own the remaining approximately 30%. In 1917 the U.S. subsidiary Merck & Co. was expropriated and has been an independent company ever since.DELO Press contact:

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
