On April 26th 2002 a 19-year-old took a gun into a high school in the eastern German town of Erfurt and shot 16 people dead. The event was the first of its kind in Germany and the impact was immense.
Ein internationales Forscherteam hat neue Einblicke in die Wechselwirkungen zwischen Nanodiamanten und Wassermolekülen gewonnen. Durch Versuche an Synchrotronquellen konnten sie feststellen, dass kleine Molekülgruppen auf den Nanodiamantoberflächen großen Einfluss auf das Wasserstoffbrücken-Netzwerk ausüben. Dies könnte insbesondere für (photo)-katalytische Anwendungen interessant sein, zum Beispiel für die Produktion von solaren Brennstoffen mit Kohlendioxid und Licht.
An international team has shed light onto interactions between nanodiamonds and water molecules. Experiments at synchrotron sources showed how hydrogenated groups on nanodiamond surfaces change the network of hydrogen bonds in the aqueous environment and may potentially influence the catalytic properties of nanodiamonds, for instance for the production of solar fuels from CO2 and light.
After simmering for months, a crisis between Israel and Germany has erupted into the open, putting serious strain on a special relationship painstakingly built up after the Holocaust.
The German government upgraded its economic forecast for 2017 slightly Wednesday, saying that strong domestic consumption would increase growth and bring down its much-criticised trade surplus.
Three men in Munich went on trial on Tuesday for not offering help to a dying man. According to prosecutors, they dared him to jump into the Isar river, then watched him drown.
From spies to mechanical musical instruments, Germany has a lot to offer in seven of its museums.
Germany stagnated in rankings of the world’s media released by Reporters Without Borders (RWB) on Wednesday, while the report claimed global media freedom in the ‘post-truth’ era is more threatened than ever.
The man accused of brutally kicking a woman down a flight of stairs in Berlin has also been implicated in sexually harassing women and girls in the past, local media report.
A research initiative hopes to get approval for a study that would recruit 25,000 recreational cannabis consumers in Berlin – if it can get government approval.
