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

A research team from the Department of Physical Chemistry was able to observe for the first time the ultrafast hydration dynamics of electrons under real electrochemical conditions using a newly developed optoelectronic sampling scheme. The information gained from their study is essential for understanding the charge transfer at the metal/solution interface, which is at the heart of most electrochemical reactions. more

Due to the quick spread of the virus in Germany, the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society has partly re-instated shift work and increased safety measures. 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 well-known fast reaction kinetics researcher has sadly passed away at the age of 78. A few memories from inside and outside the Fritz Haber Institute. 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
