Benvenuti su «Platform Chemistry»

Come una delle sei piattaforme dell’Accademia delle scienze naturali in Svizzera (SCNAT) la «Platform Chemistry» unisce e diffonde la conoscenza specifica dei settori della chimica, dell’ingegneria chimica e delle scienze dell’alimentazione in Svizzera e serve da base per un trasferimento di conoscenze all’interno di queste discipline.

Qui trovate un breve ritratto di «Platform Chemistry».

«Platform Chemistry» attribuisce grande valore al dialogo sociale e politico, proponendosi come interlocutore e referente per politica, media, economia e industria. L'altro compito fondamentale che si prefigge è migliorare la percezione comune della chimica, facendone risaltare il ruolo di scienza di base orientata al futuro e l'importante contributo per la nostra società. «Platform Chemistry» intende quindi incentivare l'interesse di bambini e ragazzi rispetto alle scienze naturali e in particolare rispetto alla chimica. La promozione delle giovani leve nell'ambito della chimica e a tutti i livelli di formazione, dai primi anni di scuola fino agli assegni di ricerca, è per noi una tematica di grande interesse.

Grazie all'ampio dibattito e alle conoscenze specialistiche messe a disposizione, i cittadini interessati possono informarsi su tematiche attuali legate alla chimica e capire meglio il valore di questa disciplina scientifica nella vita di tutti i giorni. Maggiori informazioni in merito sono disponibili alla pagina Dialogo.

Grazie alle società affiliate, la piattaforma dispone di una rete di circa 3000 esperti. La segnalazione degli esperti è una delle competenze chiave della piattaforma.

Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2018 for directed evolution of proteins

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2018 with one half to Frances Arnold (US) and the other half jointly to George Smith (US) and Sir Gregory Winter (UK). The laureates have taken control of evolution and used it for purposes that bring the benefit to humankind. Enzymes produced through directed evolution are used to manufacture everything from biofuels to pharmaceuticals.

Prix Schläfli 2018 in Chemistry: Xiaojiang Xie

He is described as a "volcano of scientific ideas" by Eric Bakker, his PhD supervisor at the University of Geneva. Xiaojiang Xie laughs a little when he hears this on the phone in his hometown of Shenzen, to which he returned two years ago. Prior to that, he had been a researcher for five years in Geneva and Paris, where he launched a career that would make the world sit up and take notice.

Le laboratoire de Schönbein, le Falkensteinerhof à Bâle, classé « Chemical Landmark »

Le 16 novembre 2017, le lieu de travail de Christian Friedrich Schönbein, le Falkensteinerhof, à la Münsterplatz à Bâle, a été classé « Monument historique de la chimie » par l’Académie suisse des sciences naturelles. Le Falkensteinerhof a abrité de 1821 à 1849 la collection scientifique en même temps que le laboratoire de chimie de l’Université de Bâle. C’est là que Christian Friedrich Schönbein, l’un des plus éminents chimistes du 19e siècle, a travaillé à partir de 1828 : il a découvert, entre autres, le principe de la pile à combustible, la nitrocellulose et l’ozone.
