Simple Methods for the Preparation of Non-noble Metal Bulk-electrodes for Electrocatalytic Applications Kai junge Puring1,2, Stefan Piontek1, Mathias Smialkowski1, Jens Burfeind2, Stefan Kaluza2, Christian Doetsch2, Ulf-Peter Apfel1 1Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Inorganic Chemistry I, Ruhr-University Bochum, 2Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety, and Energy Technology, UMSICHT A facile preparation method of electrodes using the bulk material Fe4.5Ni4.5S8 is presented. This method provides an alternative technique to conventional electrode fabrication and describes prerequisites for unconventional electrode materials including a straightforward electrocatalytic testing method.
Lectin-based Isolation and Culture of Mouse Embryonic Motoneurons Rebecca Conrad1, Sibylle Jablonka2, Teresa Sczepan1, Michael Sendtner2, Stefan Wiese1, Alice Klausmeyer1 1Institute for Cellmorphology and molecular Neurobiology, Group for Cellbiology, Ruhr-University Bochum, 2Institute for Clinical Neurobiology, University of Wuerzburg An alternative way of isolating mouse embryonic motoneurons from the spinal cord is described. The method takes into account the fact that lectin can bind to the low affinity nerve growth factor receptor p75NTR. This lectin-based preplating allows a purification similar to that with a specific antibody against the p75NTR.
