09/2017: Welcome Qing!

We are happy to welcome our new PhD student Qing Qin! Qing will be working on the development of single-site electrocatalysts towards more sustainable hydrogenation reactions. Good luck, Qing and we are looking forward to work with you!

09/2017: GDCh Scientific Forum Chemistry 2017 (WiFo 2017)

Youjia, Milena, Ralf, Runyu, Ipek, Sandy, and Martin attended the GDCh Scientific Forum Chemistry 2017 (WiFo 2017) in Berlin. Sandy and Runyu presented posters about their PhD studies. Martin gave an oral presentation ("Structural Effects of Nanoporous Carbon Supports on Sodium/Sulfur Promoted Iron-based Catalysts for the Direct Conversion of Synthesis Gas to Lower Olefins") in the session Power to "X" organized by the GDCh subsections "electrochemisty" and "chemistry and energy". Thanks to the GDCh for a perfecly organized meeting!

09/2017: Martin gives invited talk at POPs

Martin was invited to the 1st International Symposium on Porous Organic Polymers (POPs 2017) in Zhangjiajie, China. He gave the talk entitled "Energy Storage and Adsorption Phenomena in Carbon-based Materials with Hierarchical Pore Architectures".

08/2017: New paper in ChemComm

A new paper about iron-based catalysts on carbon-supports for the conversion of synthesis gas to lower olefins by Martin and collaborators from the group of Prof. Krijn P. de Jong (University of Utrecht) and the group of Prof. Stefan Kaskel (Technical University Dresden) has been accepted for publication in Chemical Communications. The influence of the porosity of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) on the properties of MOF-derived iron/carbon catalysts is reported. Thanks to all collaborators!

08/2017: Welcome to new PhD student Feili Lai

We welcome Feili Lai as new PhD student in our group! Feili will work on next-generation electrochemical energy storage systems based on nanostructured carbon materials. Good luck, Feili! We are looking forward to work with you!

Energy and Environmental Utilization of Carbon Nanomaterials

The main area of research in our group is the development of nanostructured carbon materials with tailored properties for energy and environmental applications. Especially nanoporous materials with high internal porosity are of interest because they combine large available surface area of several 1000 m2/g with high chemical/thermal stability and electrical conductivity. Suchlike structures are key components in future energy storage applications, gas purification, and as support materials for metal nanoparticles in heterogeneous catalysis and can thus contribute to a sustainable development of our societies` energy balance.

We use advanced templating approaches on the nanoscale to tailor the pore size, pore geometry, and pore connectivity of these materials with high precision. Furthermore, heteroatom doping is used to modify the electronic properties and surface chemistry of the carbon framework. The performance of the designed carbon materials in gas adsorption, electrochemical energy storage (batteries and supercapacitors), and heterogeneous catalysis are linked to their textural and electronic properties. In this way, a better understanding of the structure-performance relationships can be achieved for the respective applications.
