[Press release from DRESDEN-concept, 22 Sept 2017][Deutsche Version unter "read more..."]
The DRESDEN-concept (DDc) science exhibition continues its international tour. Today, the exhibition was opened at Plac Solny (Salt Market), one of the most central squares in Wrocław. It will inform the city residents and visitors about the Dresden science landscape for the next three weeks. The opening event on 22 September 2017 was attended by Prof. Hans Müller-Steinhagen, Chairman of the DDc Executive Board and members of TU Dresden’s Senior Management, the Saxon State Secretary Uwe Gaul, the Lord Mayor of the State Capital Dresden Dirk Hilbert, and numerous directors of the DDc partner institutions. The Mayor of Wrocław, as well as the rectors of the five Wrocław-based universities were also in attendance (the Wrocław University, the Technical, the Medical, the Economic and the Natural Sciences Universities).

Congratulations to cfaed PhD student Marcus Richter for being honored with one of three prestigious ACS Nano Poster Prize Awards at the ChinaNANO 2017 in Beijing, which was held between August 29-31. He received it for his poster on “Polycyclic Azomethine Ylides as Versatile Building Block for Unprecedented N-doped Nanographenes”. A total of over 800 posters were pitching at the conference. The prize was handed over by Prof. Paul S. Weiss (founding Editor-in-Chief of ACS Nano) during the closing session. Marcus Richter, who was supported by the cfaed Inspire Grant, visited the chairs of Prof. Carlos-Andres Palma, Prof. Shixuan Du and Prof. Hong-Jun Gao at the Institute of Physics at the Chinese Academy of Science in Beijing for two months.

[Press release from TU Dresden, 14 August 2017]
Acenes are molecules formed by the linear fusion of special carbon-based hexagons, widely known as ‘benzene rings’. In spite of its structural simplicity, these molecules have attracted huge attention due to their unique electronic properties; pentacene, for example, a member of this family with five linear rings, is considered as one of the most relevant organic semiconductor to build photoelectronic devices, while larger acenes present intriguing properties that have fascinated scientists for decades. However, long acenes are unstable molecules, which cannot be found in natural sources. The obvious alternative is to access these molecules by chemical synthesis, but this approach becomes more challenging as the length of the molecule increases. In fact, nonacene (nine rings linearly fused) was the largest acene detected to date in 2010.

[Gemeinsame Pressemitteilung von Landeshauptstadt Dresden und Technischer Universität Dresden, 3. August 2017]
Die Landeshauptstadt setzt ihre Standortkampagne zum Wirtschafts- und Wissenschaftsstandort ein, um die Exzellenzbewerbung der Technischen Universität Dresden (TUD) zu unterstützen – und holt die Dresdnerinnen und Dresdner mit ins Boot. Ziel ist es, die Dresdner Stadtgesellschaft über die TUD-Exzellenzbewerbung zu informieren und für „ihre“ Exzellenzuniversität zu mobilisieren. Dafür hat die Landeshauptstadt die Website dresden.de/exzellenz gestartet. Während des gesamten Bewerbungsprozesses wird die Landeshauptstadt Dresden gemeinsam mit den Bürgerinnen und Bürgern dabei helfen, dass die TU Dresden ihren Exzellenzstatus behält. Deshalb stehen in der PR-Kampagne seit diesem Jahr die zukunftsweisenden Forschungsthemen der Exzellenzuniversität TUD und deren aktuelle Bewerbung in der neuen Exzellenzstrategie des Bundes und der Länder im Fokus.http://datas.weichertmehner.com/ddexzellenz.zip
