Welcome to the
Chair of Inorganic Chemistry of Sustainable Processes
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.
