Nachrichten aus der Chemie (the membership magazine of the GDCh) annually publishes trend reports in which authors spot and compile an overview of inspiring work and recent trends in the most important chemical disciplines.


ChemViews gives you an overview of the latest trend report, its authors and the literature collected.


Trends in Physical Chemistry 2011

R. Holze, T. Jacob, S. Schünke, P. Neudecker, D. Willbold


Electrochemistry is widely regarded as primarily the science of energy-storage and -conversion. This erroneous thematic restriction is detrimental to scientific interdisciplinary. This is of particular significance for the main industrial consumers of electrical energy for the electrolysis of chlorine and aluminum production.

There is a danger of thinned-out teaching and research in German universities. Corrective trends are only cautiously emerging.
Solution NMR spectroscopy has ventured into new areas: the characterization of mega-Dalton-sized systems and the determination of structure and dynamics of sparsely populated conformers of intrinsically unstructured proteins and membrane proteins.

Authors

Rudolf HolzeRudolf Holze graduated in chemistry from the University of Bonn, Germany, with a thesis on lithium-ion batteries and completed his Ph.D. there on electrochemical-impedance measurements. At the University of Oldenburg, Germany, he completed his Habilitation on methods for spectroelectrochemistry. Since 1993, he has been a Professor of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry at the Technical University of Chemnitz, Germany.

He is the author of more than 280 scientific publications, and the author, editor, and co-author of more than 10 books.




Timo JacobTimo Jacob
, born 1975, studied physics at the University of Kassel, Germany, and obtained his Ph.D. there in 2002. From 2002 to 2004, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Officer at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, USA. From 2004 to 2008, he worked as a Junior Research Group Leader, first at the Fritz-Haber-Institut of the Max-Planck Society in Berlin, and, from 2007, at the University of Ulm, both Germany. In 2008, he completed his Habilitation at the Free University of Berlin in Theoretical Physics. Last year, he became the Director of the Institute of Electrochemistry, University of Ulm, and his research interests include theorerical and experimental research at interfaces and electrocatalysis.


Sven SchünkeSven Schünke, born 1978, studied biology in Düsseldorf, Germany, and obtained his Ph.D. in 2010 under Dieter Willbold at the Institute for Physical Biology at the Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf and at the Institute for Structural Biochemistry (ICS-6) at the Jülich Research Center on structure analysis using NMR spectroscopy. As a Postdoctoral Research Officer, he is working on the functional and structural characterization of neuronal and viral proteins.





Philipp NeudeckerPhilipp Neudecker
, born 1974, studied physics in Bayreuth, Germany, and Albany, New York, USA. After completing his Ph.D. in late 2003 under Paul Rösch at Bayreuth on the study of the structural biology of allergens by NMR spectroscopy, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow under Lewis Kay in Toronto, Canada, on the development of NMR-RD and its application to protein folding, misfolding, and aggregation. Recently, he has taken up a position as an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Physical Biology in Düsseldorf, Germany, and is interested in the study of the structure and dynamics of proteins by using NMR spectroscopy.



Dieter WillboldDieter Willbold, born 1965, studied biochemistry in Tübingen, Bayreuth, both Germany, and Boulder, USA. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1994 under Paul Rösch at the Department of Biopolymers in Bayreuth. He obtained his Habilitation in 1998 and moved to the Institute for Molecular Biotechnology, Jena, Germany, the same year. In 2001, he accepted a call to go to Düsseldorf, Germany, where he has led the Institute of Physical Biology since 2006. Since 2005, he has also been the Director of the Institute for Structural Biochemistry (ICS-6) at the Jülich Research Center, Germany.

His research focuses on the structure, function, and manipulation of neuronal and viral proteins.
