Two PhD students of BIG-NSE were awarded with the “Chinese government award for outstanding self financed students abroad” from the Chinese scholarship council. The awarding ceremony for Shuang Li and Yupeng Zhou, will take place at the Berlin Chinese Emb
The designated spokespersons Prof. Matthias Driess, Prof. Arne Thomas, and Prof. Peter Hildebrandt have submitted the full proposal for the Cluster of Excellence “Unifying Systems in Catalysis”, UniSysCat in short.
As a combined effect of high porosity, easily accessible diacetylene (−C≡C–C≡C−) functionalities and considerable chemical stability, an efficient and recyclable heterogeneous photocatalytic hydrogen generation is achieved.
The Cluster of Excellence UniCat will award Dr. Tracy Lohr, Northwestern University, USA, the Clara Immerwahr Award on February 9, 2018 at the Technische Universität Berlin. The chemist will be honored for her outstanding contributions to the field of tan
"Unifying Systems in Catalysis" (UniSysCat), the succession project of UniCat, is qualified for submitting a full proposal.
The Einstein Foundation Berlin has announced that Professor Douglas W. Stephan of the University of Toronto has been selected as newest Einstein Visiting Fellow.
