4th EuCheMS: FIZ CHEMIE will be showing professional information services for teaching and research

15.08.2012
FIZ CHEMIE will be exhibiting modern information services for teaching, research and development in chemistry and its adjacent areas at the 4th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress in Prague in the Czech Republic / ChemInform RX and ChemgaPedia will be on show with their new user interfaces / FIZ CHEMIE employees will provide information on their products on booth 6 at the company exhibition at EuCheMS
At the 4th EuCheMS (August 26-30) in Prague, FIZ CHEMIE will be showing how professional information services can today efficiently support teaching, research and development in the solving of technical tasks.

EuCheMS is the annual chemistry congress of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS), an organization of over 40 national specialist associations from 30 European countries. Together, they represent around 150,000 individual members.

This year, using current software technology, new user interfaces are being developed for the ChemInform Reaction Library (CIRX) and ChemgaPedia. FIZ CHEMIE is equipping these popular sources of information with new functions, a new look and simplified navigation structures. In particular, the results of comprehensive user surveys are being incorporated in these developments. At the FIZ CHEMIE booth no.6 in the exhibition, which is being held within the scope of EuCheMS, product managers Dr. Kirsten Hantelmann and Ulrike Schramke will be providing information, using demo versions, on the various changes that are planned.

The highly-developed CIRX and SPORE (Solid Phase Organic Reactions) reaction databases provide targeted help for chemists looking for synthesis pathways for the preparation of new compounds. The databases can be interrogated about structures and substructures individually or in combination with other parameters such as the catalyst, reagent, yield or enantiomeric excess (ee value), and then quickly and accurately deliver suitable reactions and reaction paths. CIRX can supply around 1.5 million reactions published in scientific journals since 1990. The SPORE database has around 47,000 reactions from around 7,000 journal articles and patent specifications available for the planning of syntheses via polymer-bound organic compounds. What makes CIRX and SPORE unique are their reaction schemes. They show the reactions in the context of the original work, thus allowing a quick overview of the applicability of the located reaction for one's own development plans.

ChemgaPedia, the extremely popular eLearning facility from FIZ CHEMIE with over 500,000 accesses each month, will make learning using ChemgaPedia even simpler, more intuitive and interactive for students, through a new look and clear navigation. Available on the platform, which is free to use, are around 1,700 learning units with 18,000 individual pages of chemistry teaching and learning resources. In order to find content in a targeted way and to provide orientation across this wealth of material, ready-prepared thematic and didactic learning paths are offered in addition to full-text searches. This independent-learning facility is supplemented by comment functions and various interactive opportunities. In Prague, with a model of an electrostatic generator and an eLearning terminal, FIZ CHEMIE will be showing how efficiently specialist knowledge from chemistry and its adjacent areas can be vividly conveyed for practical application using the learning units in ChemgaPedia.

The Chemisches Zentralblatt, the most important reference work in chemistry from 1830 to 1969, has been fully digitized by FIZ CHEMIE and, together with their R&D partner InfoChem GmbH, Munich, prepared in such a way that this knowledge can be accessed using the search procedures relevant for chemistry and patent research. At EuCheMS, using the digital version of the Chemisches Zentralblatt, Product Manager Stephan Heineke will be showing the new knowledge that can be obtained from 140 years of printed and published advances in research through redigitization and new search technologies. The full-text search is professionally supplemented by information access using structural and partial-structural searches provided by InfoChem, a partner of FIZ CHEMIE.

Im Focus: Attosecond camera for nanostructures

Physicists of the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich in collaboration with scientists from the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg have observed a light-matter phenomenon in nano-optics, which lasts only attoseconds.

The interaction between light and matter is of key importance in nature, the most prominent example being photosynthesis. Light-matter interactions have also...

Im Focus: Worldwide Success of Tyrolean Wastewater Treatment Technology

A biological and energy-efficient process, developed and patented by the University of Innsbruck, converts nitrogen compounds in wastewater treatment facilities into harmless atmospheric nitrogen gas. This innovative technology is now being refined and marketed jointly with the United States’ DC Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water). The largest DEMON®-system in a wastewater treatment plant is currently being built in Washington, DC.

The DEMON®-system was developed and patented by the University of Innsbruck 11 years ago. Today this successful technology has been implemented in about 70...

Im Focus: Computational high-throughput screening finds hard magnets containing less rare earth elements

Permanent magnets are very important for technologies of the future like electromobility and renewable energy, and rare earth elements (REE) are necessary for their manufacture. The Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM in Freiburg, Germany, has now succeeded in identifying promising approaches and materials for new permanent magnets through use of an in-house simulation process based on high-throughput screening (HTS). The team was able to improve magnetic properties this way and at the same time replaced REE with elements that are less expensive and readily available. The results were published in the online technical journal “Scientific Reports”.

The starting point for IWM researchers Wolfgang Körner, Georg Krugel, and Christian Elsässer was a neodymium-iron-nitrogen compound based on a type of...

Im Focus: Atomic precision: technologies for the next-but-one generation of microchips

In the Beyond EUV project, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen and for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena are developing key technologies for the manufacture of a new generation of microchips using EUV radiation at a wavelength of 6.7 nm. The resulting structures are barely thicker than single atoms, and they make it possible to produce extremely integrated circuits for such items as wearables or mind-controlled prosthetic limbs.

In 1965 Gordon Moore formulated the law that came to be named after him, which states that the complexity of integrated circuits doubles every one to two...

Im Focus: Researchers demonstrate size quantization of Dirac fermions in graphene

Characterization of high-quality material reveals important details relevant to next generation nanoelectronic devices

Quantum mechanics is the field of physics governing the behavior of things on atomic scales, where things work very differently from our everyday world.
