Two Greenland ice cores reveal that abrupt climate warming and sea ice retreat in the Arctic preceded maximum iodine levels, reaching peak concentrations during interglacial periods.

This work, recently published in Nature Communications, has been featured on the Editor's Highlights webpage called "Catalysis", which reports cutting edge research across the field of catalysis.

Two endolysins with high anti-pneumococcal activity have been structurally and functionally characterized by scientists from the IQFR, CIB and Salamanca University.

Two articles published in JACS report the photochemical properties of these key sulfur intermediate species, which are building blocks in the formation atmospheric sulfuric acid.

Structural and biochemical analyses of new tetrameric transferases from psychrophilic and mesophilic bacteria shed light into enzyme activity at low temperatures.

Presentamos una nueva actividad de la Cátedra Julio Palacios, con el Profesor Harald Andrés Helfgott como invitado, el matemático que ha resuelto recientemente la conjetura de Goldbach (1742)

The Penicillin-Binding Proteins (PBPs) are transpeptidases that catalyze crosslinking in the bacterial cell wall and the molecular targets of the ß-lactam antibiotics

Iodine concentration in ice remained constant during the pre-ozone hole period (1800-1974) but has continuously declined since the onset of the ozone hole era (~1975), closely tracking the total ozone evolution over Antarctic
