Welcome to the

Chair of Inorganic Chemistry of Sustainable Processes

On the following pages you will find information about our research areas, current publications, job vacancies and important contact details of all staff members.

Our group focuses on the development and characterisation of functional materials for sustainable chemical processes. The role of base metals as reactive components in sustainable processes is the central topic of our research. On the one hand, new, effective materials are synthesised and tested with regard to their catalytic activity. Catalytically active materials, in turn, are investigated mechanistically in detail for the reasons for their high activity, in order to enable the design of improved catalysts in feedback. The methods used, especially at the synchrotron, are constantly being further developed to meet the requirements of the systems.
