ETH News 2014: Reports from the research groups

ICB

03.12.2014 Bioplastic – greener than ever

Research groups of Prof. Dr. Konrad Hungerbühler and Prof. Dr. Javier Pérez-Ramírez

Polylactic acid is a degradable plastic used mostly for packaging. To meet the rising demand, ETH researchers have developed an eco-friendly process to make large amounts of lactic acid from glycerol, a waste by-product in the production of biodiesel. More

Natur

12.11.2014 Understanding natural compounds

Researchers led by Prof. Dr. Gisbert Schneider

Antibiotic-resistant germs, dangerous viruses, cancer: unsolved medical problems require new and better drugs. Nature can provide the inspiration for new active agents. A computer-based method developed by a team of researchers from ETH Zurich is helping to do just that. More

Worner

12.11.2014 Award-winning electron observer

Prof. Dr. Hans Jakob Wörner

Hans Jakob Wörner is the recipient of the Klung Wilhelmy Science Award for his research on super-fast electron movements during chemical processes. More

15.10.2014 Emergency aid for overdoses

Prof. Dr. Jean-Christophe Leroux and his team

Every minute counts in the event of an overdose. ETH professor Jean-Christophe Leroux and his team have developed an agent to filter out toxins from the body more quickly and efficiently. It can also be used for dialysis in patients suffering from hepatic failure. More

30.09.2014 MRI Imaging technology is enhanced by hyperpolarization

Prof. Dr. Christophe Copéret et al.

In a paper just published in Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) a new imaging technology that uses so called Hyperpolarizing Solids (HYPSOs) was just described. More

Riniker

15.08.2014 New at ETH Zurich

Prof. Dr. Sereina Riniker

At 29 years old, Sereina Riniker is currently the youngest professor at ETH Zurich. In an interview, the chemist tells how she experienced her start and how she wants to motivate her students. More

Arthritis

06.08.2014 Curing arthritis in mice

Teresa Hemmerle, Fabia Doll (group of Prof. Dr. Dario Neri)

With a new therapeutic product, researchers have managed to cure arthritis in mice for the first time. The scientists are now planning to test the efficacy of the drug in humans. More

DrinkPure

22.07.2014 Filter for clean water around the world

Research group of Prof. Dr. Wendelin J. Stark

An innovative filter makes it possible to purify water more quickly, simply and economically than ever before. The developers hope the device will soon play a big role development aid, and they are looking for investors to help them achieve this goal. More

Anti-T

02.07.2014 New approach for tuberculosis drugs

Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Altmann

In the past 50 years, only one new tuberculosis drug has come on to the market, yet many more active substances are urgently needed. Current treatments increasingly fail due to multidrug-resistant pathogens. ETH researchers have now applied to patent a novel approach for developing new tuberculosis drugs. More

Zeolithe

27.05.2014 Better catalysts for the petrochemical industry

Prof. Dr. Javier Pérez-Ramírez, Dr. Sharon Mitchell

When crude oil is refined to fuels and chemicals, help is at hand – in the form of so-called catalysts. Scientists now provide a reference parameter for the performance of an important class of catalysts for petrochemical production. More

Grass

24.04.2014 Protecting olive oil from counterfeiters

Dr. Robert Grass (group of Prof. Dr. W. J. Stark) and his team

Who guarantees that expensive olive oil isn't counterfeit or adulterated? An invisible label, developed by ETH researchers, could perform this task. The tag consists of tiny magnetic DNA particles encapsulated in a silica casing and mixed with the oil. More

stark

11.04.2014 The ATM strikes back

Prof. Dr. Wendelin J. Stark and his team

Hot foam may soon send criminals running if they damage ATM. ETH researchers have developed a special film that triggers an intense reaction when destroyed. The idea originates from a beetle that uses a gas explosion to fend off attackers. More

flicker

10.04.2014 The result of slow degradation

Research group with PD Dr. Martin Scheringer (group of Prof. Dr. K. Hungerbühler)

Why do environmental pollutants accumulate in the cold polar regions? This may not only be due to the fact that many substances are less volatile at low temperatures, as has been long suspected, but also to their extremely slow natural degradation. More

nanos

24.03.2014 Hot nanoparticles for cancer treatments

Research project of Prof. Dr. Jean-Christophe Leroux, Prof. Dr. Sortiris Pratsinis

Nanoparticles have a great deal of potential in medicine: for diagnostics, as a vehicle for active substances or a tool to kill off tumours using heat. ETH Zurich researchers have now developed particles that are relatively easy to produce and have a wide range of applications. More
