Dr Shuang Li has been awarded a 238.800 EUR DFG grant for her project "Organic-Polyoxometalate Co-Crystal-Derived Mesoporous Metal Carbides/Nitrides for Hydrogen Production from Seawater.”

Two UniSysCat research group leaders, Prof. Dr. Robert Schlögl and Prof. Dr. Beatriz Roldan Cuenya as well as BasCat, are involved in CatLab, the new BMBF funded catalysis research center.

Two female researchers receive the Clara Immerwahr Award 2021 for their outstanding achievements in the field of catalysis research.

We are looking forward to our Annual General Meeting on November 25, 2020, 4 pm.

Fossil oil (Erdöl) - what is it and what is its role in our world? Dr Benjamin Steininger, UniSysCat member and research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, looks into this exciting topic.

The team at UniSysCat is greatly saddened to learn about the death of Sir John Meurig Thomas, a highly regarded chemist and catalysis researcher.

An interdisciplinary team including UniSysCat group leader Prof. Dr. Peter Hegemann (HU Berlin) receives EUR 10 million from the European Research Council (ERC) to develop light-controlled molecular switches.

The surface science approach, pioneered by Gerhard Ertl and others, has proven to be most powerful to understand surface chemical reactions at the molecular scale. By applying tightly controlled conditions – well-defined...
