Scientists Meet Scientists – Wednesday Coffee Talk by Prof. Job Boekhoven (Supramolecular Chemistry) on supramolecular materials with a time switch


Prof. Ernst Rank and the TUM-IAS team invite the scientists of TUM and their guests for coffee each Wednesday! Just come over to the TUM-IAS after lunch between 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. and have a coffee with us, meet other scientists and listen from time to time to a short talk (10-15 mins) on a recent major TUM publication or issue – aimed specifically at a non-expert audience.

On November 22, 2017, Prof. Job Boekhoven (Supramolecular Chemistry) will talk about the development of new materials with a tunable lifetime: These autonomously disintegrate once the energy is exhausted – a feature that could be used in numerous applications (TUM press release).

Relevant Publication:
M. Tena-Solsona, B. Rieß, R. K. Grötsch, F. C. Löhrer, C. Wanzke, B. Käsdorf, A. R. Bausch, P. Müller-Buschbaum, O. Lieleg, and J. Boekhoven, “Far-from-equilibrium supramolecular materials with a tunable lifetime”, Nature Communications, 8, 15895, 2017 – doi: 10.1038/ncomms15895

We look forward to seeing you there!
