An expanded version of INFOTHERM®, the database with thermophysical experimental data, will be presented at ACHEMA. Its new form saves chemical engineers and process technicians the trouble of time-consuming manual searching through endless hit lists.
Users are no longer required to enter a specific compound name. Now they can formulate general search queries, for example for chlorinated hydrocarbons which form an azeotrope with water and ethanol between 50 and 60°C. Or conversely, they can query whether there are hydrocarbons without chlorine which meet this criterion. The database responds with a limited number of hits, preselected according to their relevance to the query. Costs are incurred only when specific numeric values are displayed.
An important innovation is the new option to filter by approximately 500 material classes. This enables about four million records for approximately 39,000 material mixtures and 21,000 pure substances to be researched with regard to more than 200 properties with no redundancy whatsoever. This is facilitated by the full text search complemented by a thesaurus with more than 800 search terms.
Further, ThermoML, a new XML-based IUPAC data exchange format, will also be introduced for INFOTHERM® at ACHEMA. ThermoML resulted from the collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST, see http://trc.nist.gov/ThermoML.html) and ensures complete, error-free recording of thermophysical data from electronic journals as well as the export of all INFOTHERM® data using this standard format. In this way FIZ CHEMIE Berlin is following the trend of increasing numbers of renowned journals which publish their research results in this format. This will enable the database to grow at the same rate that scientific results become available online. Entries in the INFOTHERM® database are checked for reliability by a team of highly qualified scientists.At ACHEMA, FIZ CHEMIE will exhibit together with the University of Applied Sciences Wildau at a large stand (F13-G14) in Hall 4.2. There on May 12 and 13 at 11:30 am and 2:30 pm there will be a presentation entitled "Infotherm® II: From Data to Information", which offers a detailed report of the new features and benefits of the new release of INFOTHERM®. Attendance is free and requires no registration.
All statements in this press release which are not of a historical character refer to the future in the sense of U.S. security law. The predictive statements are assumptions which are based on the current state of information and consequently are subject to particular uncertainty factors. Events which actually occur can deviate considerably from those predicted due to many factors, for example as a result of changes in technology, product development or production, market acceptance, costs or prices for products of FIZ CHEMIE Berlin and dependence on alliances and partners, approval processes, competition, intellectual property or patent protection and copyrights.

Achema 2018: New camera system monitors distillation and helps save energy
22.05.2018 | Technische Universität Kaiserslautern
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
