    “Molecular vice” enables new chemical reactions

    External mechanical action can significantly influence chemical reactions and even enable new transformations beyond established approaches. The strategies to control reactions in this way have so far mainly included one-dimensional polymers that can be exposed to mechanical "stress" e.g. B. byc ... more

    Innovative method for the environmentally friendly control of cereal fungi and insect pests

    Pathogenic fungi of the genus Fusarium are the cause of a large number of serious plant diseases in cereal cultivation, which are usually summarized under the term "ear fusarium" and cause immense crop losses and food poisoning worldwide. The use of conventional ... more
