Researchers look at old baked goods as basis for bioplastics

April 25, 2021 |

In Germany, University of Hohenheim and the Fraunhofer WKI researchers succeeded in extracting the basic chemical hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) from old baked goods that can no longer be marketed as food as a way to use HMF as a starting material for biobased plastics. With HMF, a starting material is available that can, for example, replace […]

Scientists unravel the two-way molecular inner dialogue of seeds

January 26, 2020 |

In Germany, plant physiologists from the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, the Universities of Geneva, Lausanne and the University of Lyon have jointly tracked down the internal molecular dialogue between the embryo and endosperm, genetically two different organisms, that is required for seed development. The communication of the embryo and the surrounding endosperm is based […]
