However ATPE has no large-scale industrial applications yet. This is based substantially on very long phase separation times resulting from low interfacial tensions and low density differences between the phases producing intensive and stable emulsions. This causes an increased footprint of the required mixer/settler devices or the application of additional equipment such as energy consuming centrifuges. The present invention relates to a process for separation or purification of biomolecules via ATPE. The advantages are maintained and the major limitation of long phase separation time is overcome by immobilizing one of the two phases in porous particles. Suspending the impregnated particles in the second aqueous phase containing the biomolecules creates the emulsion without any need for phase separation after the extraction step. During the separation process, the biomolecules partition between the aqueous phase surrounding the particles and the immobilized second aqueous phase inside of the particles’ pores.

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...

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...
