3 iNANO researchers receive a share of green DFF millions

iNANO employees, Professors Jeppe Vang Lauritsen and Duncan Sutherland, and iNANO member, Professor Mogens Christensen, receive fundings from the Independent Research Fund Denmark. The researchers will study electrocatalytic hydrogen production, materials for building solar-thermal management, and compaction of Magnets, respectively.

NMR Center part of new EU project: providing worldwide access to infrastructures in solid-state NMR

The use of solid-state NMR spectroscopy is pivotal in enabling the characterisation of structure and dynamics at the atomic-level. These methods rely on access to sophisticated and costly solid-state NMR equipment that is only available in few national facilities. The Danish Center for Ultrahigh Field NMR Spectroscopy at Aarhus University, with…

Effective deconstruction of PU by catalyst based on earth-abundant metal

Polyurethane (PU) is a widely used material in a countless number of everyday products as well as more sophisticated objects like aircrafts. Unfortunately, there are very few methods to reuse or recycle PU and when recycled, the product often loses its original properties. Researchers at Aarhus University are working tirelessly on establishing a…
