New important contribution on Raman band assignment

  We are very happy to announce that the first important paper of Peter Bock   „Infrared and Raman spectra of lignin substructures: Coniferyl alcohol, abietin, and coniferyl aldehyde“ is published in the  „Journal of Raman Spectroscopy“ https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.1002/jrs.5588   A comprehensive collection of spectra with band assignment is made available in the supplementary materials.

PhD defense Batirtze Prats-Mateu

It´s done. Yesterday Bati gave an excellent talk on „Tip in-light on: Raman and AFM studies of biological materials“ and mastered very good all questions. CONGRATULATION and all the best for the future. Also the other group member did a very good job by providing a really good doctoral hat  and a nice surprise.
