Polyethylene accounts for nearly one-third of the world’s plastic waste. An interdisciplinary team from the University of Bayreuth has used NMR spectroscopy to investigate the progressive degradation of polyethylene in the environment for the first time.

Visualisation of Hyper-CEST to reveal two previously “hidden” structures of metal-organic cages.
1 Apr 2022

Using the Hyper-CEST NMR technique, researchers have revealed two previously little researched variants of a type of transport container from the class of metal–organic polyhedra (MOPs). This could lead to a novel type of MRI contrast agent.
