Sun protection for algae

Sunprotection for AlgaeResearchers at Bielefeld University together with colleagues from Italy and Australia identified a molecular mechanism that microalgae use to protect themselves from damaging environmental stress. According to the researchers, the results of their analysis could be used to speed up the cultivation of algae for the production of valuable products. An advance version of the study is now published online in the internationally renowned journal “Plant Cell”. Continue Reading →

Die Alge als Chemierohstoff

Chemikern und Biologen der Universität Konstanz gelang die Umwandlung von Algenöl in höherwertige chemische Rohstoffe über die sogenannte isomerisierende Alkoxycarbonylierung. Damit bereiten sie die Grundlage für eine Nutzung von Algen als chemischer Grundstoff für eine große Bandbreite von Materialien und Produkten, noch über die Verwendung der Alge als Ersatzstoff für Rohöl hinaus. Die Forschungsergebnisse wurden aktuell im Wissenschaftsjournal „Angewandte Chemie“ veröffentlicht. Continue Reading →
