Roentgen Medal for Roldán

Roentgen Medal for Roldán

September 15, 2022

FHI Director Prof. Dr Beatriz Roldán Cuenya received the Röntgen Medal 2022 in recognition of her research on catalysis, especially electrocatalysis, and the associated possibilities for the use of new sustainable energy sources of the future. The prize was awarded on 10 September by Remscheid's Lord Mayor Burkhard Mast-Weisz in the Klosterkirche in Remscheid-Lennep.

International conference in Prague started today

The international conference "Challenges on renewable energy storage" at Liblice Castle near Prague started today with strong FHI participation. The conference from 29 to 31 August is being held jointly with the Czech J. Heyrovský Institute for Physical Chemistry and with the support of the CatLab project. more

New Understanding of Water Electrolysis

Water electrolysis is a key technology to establish CO2-neutral hydrogen production. One of the key technological hurdles is the design of stable, active and affordable catalysts for the anodic oxygen evolution reaction (OER), which is one bottleneck of the hydrogen production process. Researchers from the Interface Science Department have now provided quantitative near-surface structural insights into oxygen-evolving CoOx(OH)y nanoparticles which are published in Nature Energy today. more

Research talents on their way

Two "Jugend-Forscht" award winners are interns at the Fritz Haber Institute this summer. In July, Robin Winkelhage from Osnabrück (project "Obtaining carbon dioxide-neutral fuels") spent two weeks at the CatLab in Adlershof. Today Alexandra Simion (project "The Marangoni effect using the example of a water-alcohol drop on oil") from Nuremberg has her first day of internship. more

Machine learning of ‘Catalysis Tetris’

The way how molecules involved in chemical reactions bind to the surface of a catalyst is key to understand and improve the catalyst’s performance. Researchers from the Fritz Haber Institute and the Danish Aarhus University have now developed a machine learning algorithm that can predict this important property for complex molecules that can bind to the surface in multiple motives.
