In a cooperative project of development the German Chemical Society Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh), the German National Library of Science and Technology Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) Hannover and FIZ CHEMIE Berlin have created Chem.de, a new information and knowledge platform for chemistry. Interfaces both in German and in English are available. The development was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It also supports the operational service. Chem.de will be on display at the Online Information 2006 exhibition, London 28 Nov - 30 Nov, Grand Hall, Stand No 322.
Chem.de supports the navigation through German professional education and training, research, conferences and meeting activities in chemistry. The portal is jointly operated by the development partners. Each of them supplies own content, e.g. information on research projects, e-learning courses covering chemistry subjects or conference data. As a supplement many entries are featured with evaluated hyperlinks to further information. Along with this Chem.de provides the community with a discussion forum and informs on vacancies in science and industry. All information provided can be searched using Chem.de as a centralised access point. The basic services are offered for free. If the portal connects to value-added services pop-up windows inform about the conditions of purchase.
About the partners:
The GDCh is the largest chemical society in Europe with approx. 27.000 members from universities, industry and other areas. The GDCh supports chemistry in teaching, research and application and promotes the understanding of chemistry in public.
The TIB Hannover is the German National Library of Science and Technology covering all areas of engineering and its basic sciences, in particular chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. The TIB comprehensivly acquires and archives literature from around the world pertaining to engineering and natural sciences. The library places a particular emphasis on acquiring so-called "grey" literature; i.e. conference proceedings, research reports etc.
FIZ CHEMIE Berlin is a state-supported non-profit information agency with more than 25 years experience in digital scientific information services. Its primary task is to provide high-quality information services concerning chemistry, chemical engineering and related fields to science, education and industry.

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
