Since September 1, 2015 Assistant Professor Minoo Tasbihi has joined the UniCat group of Prof. Reinhard Schomäcker as visiting researcher in order to produce methanol from carbon dioxide using light and photocatalysts. As a result of the combustion of fossil fuels, which began during industrialization in the 19th century, the share of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has risen dramatically. Carbon dioxide is the most significant greenhouse gas produced by humans. The Cluster of Excellence UniCat is looking for a beneficial application...
Today, The European Federation of Catalysis Societis (EFCATS) has announced that Professor Joachim Sauer of the HU Berlin and UniCat Research Fields D1 and D2 is the recipient of the 2015 EFCTAS Francois Gault Lectureship. This Award recognizes individual groundbreaking contributions to catalysis. Professor Sauer is being specifically recognized for his contributions to the atomistic understanding of catalysis by zeolites and supported transition metal oxides. He has pioneered the application of quantum methods to zeolites with seminal...
