Danica presenting at xbio

We are thrilled to announce that Danica was selected to present our project “watER dyes” at the xbio final pitch event. xbio is a Viennese platform dedicated to helping scientists working in biological and medical research to potentially translate their research findings into commercial applications. The watER dyes project presented by Danica focuses on developing cell dyes that are synthesized in environmentally friendly ways. [Read more]

Paper accepted in Small Structures

Our manuscript entitled “Covalently linked pigment@TiO2 hybrid materials by one-pot solvothermal synthesis” was accepted in Small Structures. In this work we present hybrid materials where pigment molecules and TiO2 components are synthesized and linked simultaneously. Exploiting this approach 2D lepidocrocite-like TiO2 structures spaced by covalently linked pigment molecules are obtained. [Read more]

Miriam gives talk at SciBiz Connect 2024

Miriam gave a talk at the event “SciBiz connect: Science meets Business 2024” (Wissenschaft trifft Wirtschaft 2024) organized by the BioLAGO health network and the University of Konstanz. In her talk entitled “Automation-supported search for sustainable chemical synthesis processes”, Miriam shared her views on how water can be the universal medium to synthesize novel sustainable advanced materials and why integrating automated technologies is an imperative tool for this goal.
