At ACHEMA 2012 FIZ CHEMIE and its exhibition partners, WTI and TIB, present technical information

08.06.2012
FIZ CHEMIE invites you to ACHEMA 2012 / Visitors to the exhibit booth shared with the Scientific and Technical Information Center (WTI) and German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) can find answers to in-depth technical questions in chemistry, physics and engineering in a self-teaching process / FIZ CHEMIE presents information services and reaction databases for chemistry and related fields with a focus on reactions and thermophysical data and facts

Visitors to ACHEMA, the international exhibition and convention for chemical technology, environmental protection and biotechnology in Frankfurt, can experience how exciting and entertaining it can be to solve challenging technical questions in chemistry and technology.

FIZ CHEMIE, the Scientific and Technical Information Center (WTI) in Frankfurt and the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) in Hanover invite you to their shared stand B43 in Hall 9.2 for an interesting quiz. The solutions sought embody in-depth technical knowledge of a chemical and physical nature. Participants will find the answers to their questions through their own searches using online information sources made available and the exhibits at the stand. Find the right answers and a small surprise awaits you.

The exhibition partners provide their sophisticated information services particularly to clients in research departments in science and the commercial sector. At ACHEMA 2012, FIZ CHEMIE will exhibit a number of products from its range: the ChemgaPedia e-learning platform; the ChemInform, SPORE and Infotherm databases and the digitized publication Chemisches Zentralblatt. The TIB Hanover will exhibit its GetInfo information portal. The WTI Frankfurt will offer information on its technical databases, particularly the new database TEMotive.

At ACHEMA, FIZ CHEMIE will demonstrate its specialized databases ChemInform Reaction Library (CIRX), Solid Phase Organic Reactions (SPORE) and Infotherm and present ChemgaPedia, its comprehensive e-learning platform. Both ChemgaPedia and CIRX feature a new user interface with new functions. The digital version of Chemisches Zentralblatt will reveal how information available from 140 years of research progress can be enhanced by digitizing and new search technologies. FIZ CHEMIE encourages customers and those interested to use ACHEMA to express their wishes and contribute their suggestions for further development of the information services.

The CIRX and SPORE reaction databases offer organic reactions particularly selected for synthetic chemists. These databases can be searched using drawn structures or substructures as well as by bibliographic information, reaction types or experimental conditions. Researchers use the reaction databases particularly for developing new pharmaceuticals, but also for other compounds such as dyes or crop protection agents.

The thermophysical database Infotherm supports the daily work of process engineers with technically tested thermodynamic and physical properties of compound mixtures and pure substances. The database includes about 96% of data published in the literature since 1919. Nearly 500,000 tables and graphics for about 21,000 substances in pure form or mixtures are available for retrieval.

ChemgaPedia will have a new look at this year´s ACHEMA. FIZ CHEMIE has added new functions to the modernized layout of this highly popular online encyclopedia, which is accessed over 500,000 times each month. The redesigned interface incorporates the findings of comprehensive user surveys. The new look and simple navigation is intended to make learning with ChemgaPedia easier as well as more intuitive and interactive for the primary target group of students at universities and in secondary education. The free platform offers around 1,700 learning modules with 18,000 individual pages of material for teaching and learning. In addition to full text search, topical “learning paths” have been created to make it easier to locate specific content and find one’s bearings in the wealth of information. The facilities for independent study have been expanded with new comment functions and interactive options. At ACHEMA, FIZ CHEMIE will use a model of a fuel cell and an electrostatic generator to show how the learning modules in ChemgaPedia can provide knowledge for practical use.

Also at ACHEMA, FIZ CHEMIE will present the professional visitors to the trade event with the digital version of Chemisches Zentralblatt with its search mechanisms using the technology of today to unlock technical knowledge from 140 years of research progress. From 1830 to 1969, the publication was the most important reference resource for chemistry. FIZ CHEMIE has digitized all its content and, together with its research and development partner InfoChem GmbH in Munich, prepared the information so that it can be accessed with all the retrieval methods relevant to chemical research and patent searches. In addition to full text searches of 140 years of chemical documentation, the contribution of InfoChem enables information to be accessed using searches based on full or partial structures.

Those who want to learn more about the products of FIZ CHEMIE, WTI and TIB and try the databases are invited to join us at ACHEMA in Frankfurt am Main, Hall 9.2 Stand B43 from 9 am to 6 pm. A free day pass for ACHEMA 2012 can be ordered from tageskarten@fiz-chemie.de while supplies last. We look forward to your visit.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
