Fein gemahlen: Auf mechanochemischem Weg wurden der Pharmaka-Bestandteil Bismutsubsalicylat sowie Bismutdisalicylat und -trisalicylat direkt aus Bismutoxid hergestellt. Durch Röntgenpulverbeugung gelang die erste Strukturaufklärung eines Bismutsalicylats ohne organische Hilfsliganden (siehe Bild: Bi gelb, O rot, C grau; Salicylat-Ionen in zwei Koordinationsmodi: rosa und grün).
