How to tame oxidation

Oxidation is one of the most important reactions in chemistry, but it is also one of the most difficult to control. Nuno Maulide and his working group at the Department of Organic Chemistry have now developed a series of novel oxidation reactions. The methods are impressive both by their simplicity and by the fact that they lead selectively to the desired product. This simplifies the production of synthetically useful or bioactive molecules.
The results are currently published in the prestigious "Journal of the American Chemical Society".

Is there a human right to meat?

The right to food is a fundamental human right. This raises the question, however, whether this right applies to meat as well. And: Can this claim be fulfilled in an ethically, ecologically and economically justifiable form?
Alternatives to meat are relevant for several reasons: Natural resources and production capacities will not be enough to cover the growing demand for meat. The impact of animal husbandry on meat production on the environment is being looked at with increasing concern, and mass management leads to ethical problems with regard to animal welfare as well as human health.
In a commentary on "derStandard.at" Veronika Somoza from the Department of Nutritional Physiology and Physiological Chemistry and Jürgen König from the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the Faculty of Life Sciences of the University of Vienna discuss this topic and question new possibilities of meat from the laboratory.
Postings to the article have been answered on May 4th.

Nuno Maulide and his team are developing a simple method of polarity reversal

The working group around Nuno Maulide of the Department of Organic Chemistry has developed a new method of bonding bonds between two carbon atoms. In doing so, the natural polarity of the reacting group is reversed by simple reaction design, thus clearing the way for completely new reactions. In addition, the researchers have shown that known synthetic pathways through this innovation can be significantly shortened.
The results are currently published in the renowned magazine "Angewandte Chemie".

Vienna March for Science - together for science

On Saturday, 22 April 2017, the "March for Science" takes place. With 400 demonstrations, many cities around the world will take the initiative to underline the relevance of research and science to our society. In Vienna Nuno Maulide from the Department of Organic Chemistry is also present. At the closing ceremony at Maria-Theresien-Platz he wants to make a speech to protect, strengthen and celebrate the foundations of science.

Faculty Day 2017
with the public lecture by Prof. Gunda Köllensperger


The faculty day on 17 March 2017 also offered an interesting and rich program this year.

In addition to information on the development of the faculty, about the study programs or the possibilities of third-party funding, the departments and centers presented their achievements and research foci in a posterhow.
Freddy Kleitz, Professor of Inorganic Chemistry since June 2016, presented himself to the auditorium. The dissertation awards of the Faculty of Chemistry for the academic year 2015/16 were awarded, as well as the "Golden Doctoral Diplomas".

Gunda Köllensperger, Professor of Environmental Chemistry at the Department of Analytical Chemistry, gave her lecture on "Mass Spectrometry - an Essential Tool in Analytical Chemistry".

How metals interact with the genome

For some years, metal compounds have been successfully used as chemotherapeutic agents for the control of certain types of cancer - most commonly platinum compounds. The lack of understanding of the underlying molecular mechanisms in these metal compounds often hinders the search for new, more effective antitumor agents. An international research team led by Leticia González from the Department of Theoretical Chemistry has now developed a method to observe the interaction of metal compounds with the cellular genetic material.

Microbes in outer space

The astrobiologist Tetyana Milojevic from the Department of Biophysical Chemistry investigates the molecular mechanisms of microbial survival in space.

Unprotected, a human being would survive at most a second in space. This does not apply to those microbes that the astrobiologist Tetyana Milojevic is currently investigating. Both the radioresistant bacterium Deinococcus Radiodurans and the archaeon Metallosphaera Sedula have the potential to exist in space. These results bring the researchers a little further in their search for the molecular conditions for microbial survival under extremely harsh conditions.

Rik Oost and Patrick Zobel at the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

Rik Oost from Nuno Maulides team of the Department of Organic Chemistry and Patrick Zobel from the workgroup of Leticia Gonzalez / Department of Theoretical Chemistry were selected to participate in the upcoming prestigious Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings are annual scientific conferences held since 1951 in the city of Lindau on Lake Constance. Its aim is to bring together Nobel laureates and young scientists to promote scientific exchange across generations and cultures.
The conferences take a special place among the international scientific conferences: with an annual average of 30-40 participating laureates, they represent the world's largest gathering of Nobel Prize winners outside Stockholm's award ceremonies.
Young scientists who wish to attend the meetings must first pass through a multi-stage selection process. Students, postgraduates and post-docs under 35, who are among the best in their respective years, can apply.

The Faculty of Chemistry congratulates Rik Oost and Patrick Zobel very warmly!


Karl Schlögl Prize 2016 for Katharina Pallitsch

Katharina Pallitsch from the Department of Organic Chemistry recently received the Karl Schlögl Prize 2016 from the Austrian Academy of Sciences for her dissertation "Studies on the Biodegradation of P-C Compounds - Phosphonic Acids as Enzyme Inhibitors". The work deals with the study of the degradation of phosphonates in nature as well as with the application of the acquired knowledge for the synthesis of new active ingredients - an area that has so far been given little attention.

The Karl Schlögl Prize is awarded for an outstanding dissertation in the field of chemistry which was conducted at an Austrian university and max. two years before the date of submission.

We congratulate Mrs. Pallitsch on her great performance.
