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.
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.
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.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
