Research at MPI CEC
The Department of Inorganic Spectroscopy focuses on the development and application of advanced spectroscopic tools for understanding processes in heterogeneous, molecular, and biological catalysis.
Energy Converting Enzymes
Biochemistry of Metalloproteins
X-ray Spectroscopy Instrumentation
Proteins on electrodes
Chemical Synthesis, X-ray structure analysis
The focus here lies on carbon-based materials which can play an active part in oxygen formation reaction. In parallel, spectroscopic methods help to understand biological systems and develop efficient analogues.
The fundamental science in the Division of Molecular Catalysis contributes to the development of technologies for the conversion of renewable energy and feedstocks to sustainable fuels and chemical products.
