For her contributions and dedication to the advancement of scientific research in Europe the Director of the Department of Interface Science was awarded with a membership to the Academy. more

This summer, four new scientists will be joining the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society with a Fellowship for Postdoctoral Researchers by the Humboldt Foundation. more

A research team from the Departments of Interface Science and Inorganic Chemistry was able to observe a copper catalyst during the reaction that converts the greenhouse gas CO2 into a chemical energy source. The information gained through their technique will further advance technologically important reactions for green energy production. more

A team of scientists in the Department of Interface Science was able to exploit the dynamic structural and chemical nature of Cu surfaces under pulsed electrocatalytic reaction conditions to convert the greenhouse gas CO2 into a fuel such as ethanol. more

FHI Directors Prof. Beatriz Roldán Cuenya and Prof. Robert Schlögl were interviewed by German daily newspaper DIE WELT about hydrogen production. In the interview published on March 7th 2020 they talk about progressive fundamental research and the industry’s need to catch up with scientific developments. more

In February 2020, the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society welcomed four new research fellows who have been awarded a Fellowship for Postdoctoral Researchers by the Humboldt Foundation. According to the latest rankings, the FHI hosts more Postdoctoral Humboldt Fellows than any other research institution outside of higher education. more

FHI Director Prof. Beatriz Roldán Cuenya was featured by the journal ACS Energy Letters and interviewed about her career and the pathways that lead her to become an expert in the fields of surface science and electrocatalysis for applications in energy research. more

Highly-selective Cu-based catalysts for CO2 electroreduction were synthesized using electrolyte-induced nanostructuring of a Cu foil. In addition to enhanced surface roughness, the effect is associated with the formation and stability of Cu+ species as revealed by operando spectroscopy. more

The Berlin Cluster of Excellence UniSysCat honored Dr. Maria Escudero Escribano from the University of Copenhagen with the Clara Immerwahr Award. Prof. Dr. Beatriz Roldan Cuenya gave the laudation. As part of the award, Dr. Escudero Escribano and her students will spend time at the FHI in Berlin within the Department of Interface Science. more

During the first meeting of the General Assembly of the Cluster of Excellence "Unifying Systems in Catalysis" (UniSysCat), the executive board was elected. One of its members is Beatriz Roldan Cuenya. more
