Innovative Hybrid Interfaces

23.02.2009
Chemists from the Osnabrück University have created new types of hybrid interfaces, whose redox active components contain components such as viologen as matrix and N-heterocyclic nucleobase-derivatives as head group. These novel hybrid interfaces have an interesting double function:

• Using the connection of a nucleobase derivative to a redox active molecule part, a conjugated π-electron system is created. Through this it is possible to change selectively the electrochemical properties with regard to an electrochrome material. • Using the molecule part of the nucleobase, the hybrid molecule has a bio-specific Base-Base recognition function. The hybridisation complementary bases (A-T and G-C for DNA after Watson and Crick) contain the key principle of many bio-technological verification systems, which target DNA verification. After the hybridisation, coupling reactions with verification reactants are necessary, which make the hybridisation occurrences visible. The novel hybrid molecule immediately creates this detection possibility using the redox active molecule part. In this way the hybrid interfaces are also suitable for the array-technology for bio-medical or genetic technological problems.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
