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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
