This winter, four new scientists have joined the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society with a Fellowship for Postdoctoral Researchers by the Humboldt Foundation. Despite the pandemic situation, the researchers coming from the United States, Italy and South Corea enjoy their stay at Berlin. more

Researchers of our Department of Physical Chemistry (Maklar et al.) investigated in a combined experimental and theoretical study how a dynamical insulator-to-metal transition affects fundamental interactions, such as electron-electron and electron-phonon scattering. The research results are just published in the Physical Review Letter 128, 026406. more

CO2 is a critical pollutant of the atmosphere with noticeable climatic consequences. However, routes already exist to convert CO2 into useful chemicals or fuels. The key is catalysis – a process of accelerating desired chemical reactions, involving special materials (catalysts).

Only a few weeks ago, he attracted attention with a research publication on the topic of "Water Extraction in the Desert" in the scientific journal "Science": Prof. Dr. Omar M. Yaghi, chemistry professor at the University of California, Berkeley (USA) and winner of the Gerhard Ertl Lecture Award 2021, gave an outstanding lecture on "Reticular Chemistry and Precision Reactions in Infinite 2D and 3D" on 10 December 2021, the anniversary of the awarding of the Nobel Prize to Gerhard Ertl. The online event has been livestreamed from 4pm (Berlin time zone).

Waruno Mahdi doesn't know where to start telling stories, he has so much to tell.
The 78-year-old Indonesian's life alone is worthy of a movie, but his decades of linguistic work are currently being honoured in his home country with a two-volume special edition of the "Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia". If you listen closely to him - smiling mischievously and gesticulating wildly - you realise how much his linguistic and cultural studies are connected to his eventful life.

A team of researchers from the Department of Interfacial Sciences has discovered how changes in the structure of copper catalyst particles during electrochemical CO2 reduction affect their catalytic performance. This should lead to the development of new catalysts that convert the greenhouse gas CO2 into useful chemicals.
