Reputation ranking: University of Bonn among the top 100 in the world

The University of Bonn is one of the 100 universities with the highest reputation worldwide. This is the result of the recently published ranking by Times Higher Education (THE) magazine, which is based on a survey of almost 40,000 international academics on excellence in research and teaching. Bonn is ranked 91-100, making it one of only six German universities to make it into the top 100 of the survey.

Turning One into Eight

To synthesize potential drugs or natural products, you need natural substances in specific mirror-image variants and with a high degree of purity. For the first time, chemists at the University of Bonn have succeeded in producing all eight possible variants of polypropionate building blocks from a single starting material in a relatively straightforward process. Their work has now been published in the prestigious journal “Angewandte Chemie.”

eROSITA relaxes cosmological tension

The analysis of how galaxy clusters, the largest objects in the Universe, evolve over cosmic time has yielded precise measurements of the total matter content and its clumpiness, report scientists of the German eROSITA consortium, led by the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics and with participation of the University of Bonn. The results affirm the standard cosmological model and alleviate the so-called S8 tension, while at the same time offering insights into the elusive neutrinos' mass. The analysis is based on one of the largest catalogues of galaxy clusters and superclusters, also released today. An important pillar in the analysis is the ``weighing’’ of the discovered galaxy clusters, where the University of Bonn contributed in a major way.
