Experiments with neutrons at the Technische Universität München (TUM) show that the antidepressant lithium accumulates more strongly in white matter of the brain than in grey matter.
The German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) supports again the construction and development of scientific instruments at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz-Zentrum (MLZ).
Jürgen Allgaier from Forschungszentrum Jülich tested a new class of surfactants, which is now applied in commercial colour removers. (article only in German!)
Nowadays lithium ion batteries are commonly used as storage media in portable electronic devices like laptops, smart phones, cameras, etc. But their field of application is also expanded to electro mobility and storage solutions for renewable energies. Though lithium-ion...
