Although well established for chemical reactions, segment-ed flow capillary microreactors are so far not used for enzymatic catalysis. Here, a segmented flow capillary microreactor was used as a first example to perform the enzyme-catalyzed conversion of 1 heptaldehyde to 1-heptanol in a two liquid-liquid phase system. The model enzyme used was the thermophilic alcohol dehydrogenase (TADH), because of its broad substrate spectrum and enantiospecificity. All key parameters governing reaction performance have been correlated in a novel operational window for an easy assessment of the various system constraints. Such sys-tems are characterized by high productivities and easy phase separation facilitating downstream processing.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
