The Mössbauer Spectroscopy community has lost one of its prominent and well-recognized scientists, Prof. Dr. Werner Keune, on March 27, 2021, in Germany, after a long battle with cancer. more

A team of researchers led by scientists from the Interface Science Department of the Fritz-Haber-Institute have found out that the important industrial process of methanol production can be positively influenced if the copper catalyst used in the reaction comes into contact with zinc oxide. more

Ane Etxebarria from the Interface Science Department of the Fritz Haber Institute was awarded a prestigious MSCA Individual Fellowship. Her work will help design better catalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) to make future hydrogen production more efficient. more

The Fritz Haber Institute, the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin are building a research platform for catalysis named CatLab to achieve leaps of innovation in hydrogen research. The project is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with more than 50 million Euros. more

The Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society is once again the most popular research institution for Humboldt Fellowships and Awards in Germany. In the last ten years, the FHI has also nearly doubled the share of female scientists from the Humboldt Foundation. The Interface Science Department welcomes two more fellows this winter. more

Transitioning to a sustainable energy economy requires electrocatalytic methods to convert electrical energy to chemical energy and feedstocks. A team of researchers from TU Berlin, ETH Zurich, the National Research Council – Institute of Materials of Trieste, and led by the FHI has now uncovered the reaction mechanism of a major bottleneck in these processes, the oxygen evolution reaction. Results are published in Nature. more

The Director of the Interface Science Department has been announced as the 2022 winner of the Paul H. Emmett Award in Fundamental Catalysis by the North American Catalysis Society. more
