New CRC 1357 publication

New process for the production of nanosheets, the osmotic delamination of sodium hectorite, extends nanocomposite applications to hydrophobic matrices like biodegradable polyesters. This allows the collaborative research center to develop and test new biodegradable materials.   ...more

CRC 1357 in "Bayerischer Rundfunk": Gut zu wissen

Now online in our media library "Was Mikroplastik in Gewässern bewirkt". Really nice report by Jan Kerckhoff and the BR camera team for "Gut zu wissen", broadcasted on 16.01.2021 at Bayerischer Rundfunk (in German).  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication

Nine different types of plastic were detected in 15 mussel samples from 12 different countries. Mussel samples from the North Atlantic and South Pacific were the most contaminated. The publication is available free of charge until 22. January 2021.  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication

Really nice public outreach of the recently published Science Advances study. Microplastics with an "ecocorona" are 10 times more likely internalized by mouse cells than pure, unmodified microplastics. An overview of published news articles you can find right under the press release.  ...more

New Instrument FT-IR Spectroscopy, LUMOS II

We are looking forward to set-up our new FT-IR spectrometer LUMOS II from Bruker. With the financial support of the DFG and University of Bayreuth we were able to realize this important investment that will increase our microplastics analytic testing capacities.  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication

Congratulations to Anja Ramsperger, A04 team and Martin Löder (B06) and Prof. Tillmann Lüders for the new publication in the journal Water. They have investigated biofilm formation on microplastic particles.  ...more

Collaborative Research Centre 1357 Microplastics

The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1357: "Microplastics - laws of formation, transport, physical-chemical behaviour and biological effects: From Model to Complex Systems as the Basis for New Approaches" investigates the formation, migration and effects of microplastics and develops new approaches to solving this immense environmental problem.

​Introducing the SFB

More than 30 scientists from three profile fields of the University of Bayreuth are researching together in 16 interdisciplinary teams in the SFB Microplastics. ...more

Seminars on Microplastics

Researchers from Germany and around the world provide insights into their work. As a rule, the seminars are open to the public and interested parties are cordially invited. ...more
