Carbonsäuren

21.04.2010
The invention in the field of biotechnology relates to a process for the preparation of functionalized di- or tri-carboxylic acids. The method is usually integrated in the production process for citric acid, which is used in food industry for preservatives and

acidulants, in cleaning agents as a detergent or in medical technology. The method is characterized by the use of microorganisms, which are used for chemical cleavage of the precursors. In particular, alkyl esters from commercial biodiesel fuels are added in order to cultivate the cultivation of micro organisms. This is done through Beta-oxidation of the mono carbonic acid under aerobic submerse conditions in a culture medium comprising optionally saturated, unbranched monocarbonic acid as assimilated main carbon source. The advantage of the process is the low waste production using biodiesel with high yields (50%) in a standard procedure. Biodiesel, which is produced as an alternative fuel, is a new inexpensive class of substrates for biosynthesis. In general, the use of alkyl esters as substrates is associated with significant procedural and technical and economic advantages compared to the current state of the art. The practice given by the present invention provides high yields and can be regarded as procedure with low waste products.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
