“Super Summer” for PhD student Andreas Zimpel

Andreas Zimpel, a PhD student in the Wuttke Group, had many reasons to celebrate throughout the summer. On July 24th, Andi completed his thesis “External Surface Functionalization of MOF Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications” and was awarded his PhD. Only a few weeks later (and on his 31st birthday!) he was offered a position at Roche […]

Wuttke Group in Berkely

From the 15th of June to the 26th of June the Wuttke Group has been visiting UC Berkley. During this stay we had the privilege to work in close cooperation with Omar Yaghi and his group. We took this opportunity to adapt to the American lifestyle both work related and food wise, to make new […]

Violation of Archimedes’ Principle in Metal-Organic Framework Nanoparticles

Archimedes’ principle states that the weight of a submerged body is reduced by the weight of the fluid it displaces, implying that buoyancy can be described fully in terms of geometry and physics. In our Small article we show that porous nanoparticles can violate this assertion. Direct weighing of porous Metal-organic framework (MOF) nanoparticles in […]
