Shedding new light on greener synthesis pathways
In October 2019, Sascha Ott, Eszter Borbas, Leif Hammarström and Jacinto Sá, received a 5-year grant of 35 million kronor from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, for their interdisciplinary project "Unexplored Approaches to Organic Photoredox Catalysis”.
In this new research project, the groups will focus on finding new alternatives to several reactions that are widely used in the chemical industry at present. The project objective is to develop new synthesis pathways that generate less waste, or new synthetic routes that have not been practicable before.
CAP scientists in the TV news
At the CAP meeting in Umeå, March 4, 2019, CAP researchers were discussing future hydrogen technology. We also had the chance to test drive a fuel cell vehicle that runs on hydrogen gas. Swedish public service television filmed the event, which can be watched here: Vätgasbilar spås ha nyckelroll i framtiden
The First European Congress on Photosynthesis Research was a success!
Over 400 delegates from Europe, and all over the world, discussed recent findings in natural and artificial photosynthesison June 25 - 28, 2018. To see what it was all about, go to the conference homepage: ePS1.org
One of our prominent invited speakers, Junko Yano from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, was interviewed in Swedish national radio. You can listen to the program here (mostly in Swedish).
