Development of enhanced analytical methods for ultratrace determination of mercury in natural water
(Universität Ulm, 2017-08-15)
Mercury (Hg) is a ubiquitous pollutant that is emitted to the atmosphere from both anthropogenic and natural sources. Human exposure to Hg occurs mainly from consumption of contaminated fish, as Hg exhibits very high ...
Studies of high voltage LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 as positive electrode material in lithium ion cells
(Universität Ulm, 2017-02-02)
Since their first commercialization in 1991, Li-ion batteries (LIBs) present many advantages with respect to other commercial battery technologies. In particular, their higher specific energy and specific power make LIBs ...
Adsorption behavior and structure formation of ionic liquids on single crystalline surfaces
(Universität Ulm, 2017-02-10)
In the present thesis the interaction of the ionic liquids [BMP][TFSA], [OMIM][TFSA] and [EMIM][TFSA] on the single crystalline surfaces Au(111), Ag(111), Cu(111) and TiO2(110) was investigated with STM and XPS under UHV ...
Kinetics and mechanisms of the hydrogenation of CO2 to methanol on oxide-supported Au catalysts
(Universität Ulm, 2017-12-14)
Due to the depletion of fossil fuel reserves, new ways of energy production from renewable sources such as the wind and the sun have to be explored and realized in the near future. The widespread use of renewable energies ...
Protein corona composition of functionalised and loaded silica nanoparticles formed in foetal calf serum
(Universität Ulm, 2017-11-27)
Nanoparticles on silicon basis are biocompatible, biodegradable and also easily modifiable, which makes them a prime candidate for clinical research and medical applications. Especially a detailed understanding of the ...
