Enzyme that breaks down PET plastic: Leipzig scientists increase efficiency
One of the most widely used plastics in the world is polyethylene terephthalate, or PET for short. It is everywhere in our daily lives in the form of reusable PET drinks bottles. At the end of the lifecycle of a product containing PET, the environmentally friendly reuse of the PET components through…
Chemist Jörg Matysik co-authors review article on spin hyperpolarization
Magnetic resonance techniques are used in a wide range of scientific disciplines and in practice. The best-known example is magnetic resonance imaging in medicine. These techniques are currently enjoying a major boost thanks to the rapidly developing field of spin hyperpolarization. This can…
Welcome to Jörg Matysik‘s Molecular Spectroscopy Group at the Institute of Analytical Chemistry. The group aims for understanding the spin- and photochemistry of photosynthetic systems, photoreceptors and of materials by development and application of optical NMR methods.
We want to learn from the best: Nature. Can we build molecular devices that are as good as nature? We want to understand the highly optimized natural systems and recognize their tricks. That is why we are working on the following projects:
HypMol – Hyperpolarization in molecular systems
HYP*MOL is a self-organised research network on hyperpolarisation in molecular systems. The application for a Collaborative Research Centre/Transregional Collaborative Research Centre is currently being submitted to the DFG.
