The organization “Inspiring Girls” records a video in the Rocasolano in the framework of its awareness campaign againts gender stereotypes. The video can be seen in El Pais web.

Un instrumento MAX-DOAS (Multi AXis - Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy) desarrollado en el Grupo de Química Atmosférica y Clima (AC2) ha sido instalado en el rompehielos ARAON del KOPRI, dentro de su campaña Antártica 17-18.

The NMR specialised group (GERMN) from RSEQ has awarded Héctor Zamora-Carreras, ex-member of the IQFR’s NMR group, with the prize to the “best NMR thesis” defended in the 2016/2017 academic year.

The “chameleonic” peptide LytA239-252 forms a β-hairpin in aqueous solution which is converted into an α-helix in the presence of micelles. We have found that the balance of hydrophobicity <H> and amphipathicity <μH> contributes to helix stability.

Geochemical analyses in a Greenland ice core reveal a significant increase in atmospheric iodine concentrations as a consequence of the raise in human-induced tropospheric ozone and Arctic sea-ice retreat. A multidisciplinar research led by CSIC researchers reconstruct the iodine atmospheric fluxes since the onset of the Industrial Revolution.

The lytic transglycosilase Slt is critical in the cell wall recycling in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, as well in antibiotic resistance. Our structural work results disclose the details of bacterial response mediated by Slt to the b-lactam antibiotic challenge.

Maria Escudero Escribano, who was recently named winner of the Princess of Girona Foundation Scientific Research Award, will give a seminar on Wed 11th at 12:00 with the title “Tailored Electrochemical Interfaces for Sustainable Energy Conversion”. 

The Spanish Minister of Economy , Industry and Competitiveness, during of his first visit to the CSIC, has toured the “Manuel Rico” High Field NMR laboratory in the Rocasolano Institute of Physical Chemistry.
