It is of great pleasure for us to continue the IMPRS RECHARGE scientific symposia series by inviting you to the 2nd symposium “Catalysis Towards Greener Chemistry”. Our research school focuses on interdisciplinary fields of research in biology, chemistry and physics that address the challenges faced in terms of catalysis, physical and chemical analysis to achieve sustainable energy solutions.
It has become more and more clear with time that the commonly used energy resources are either getting exhausted or pose serious environmental concerns, making it essential to hunt for alternative solutions. This provides a huge scope for the development of new technologies at a molecular level with fundamental insights and at an industrial level with efficient implementations. The awareness of these challenges and scopes is the foundation of a new conceptual thinking within research in natural sciences, "Green Chemistry". This symposium aims to obtain a more comprehensive understanding of this concept by focusing on different dimensions of catalysis such as, Heterogeneous Catalysis, Homogeneous Catalysis, Bio-catalysis and Industrial Catalysis.
This symposium is organized by students of the International Max Planck Research School on Reactive Structure Analysis for Chemical Reactions.

The 2nd IMPRS RECHARGE scientific symposium 2019 takes place at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany.
Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung
D-45470 Mülheim an der Ruhr
From the north (Duisburg, A3), from the south (Cologne, A3) or from the west (Dusseldorf / Airport, A52): Leave the motorway at junction Breitscheid in the direction of Essen. Take the exit Ratingen - Breitscheid and follow the main road B1 through Mülheim. After 8 km, the road crosses the Ruhr and winds uphill. Once at the top, take a sharp left onto Bismarckstrasse (sign "Max Planck Institute"). The third street on the right (with another sign "Max Planck Institute") leads after 300 m to the institute, entrance Lembkestraße.
From the East (Essen / Dortmund): On the A40 motorway, take the MH-Heißen / MH-Zentrum exit, which becomes Bundesstraße B1. After 4 km of winding road, at the traffic lights, drive straight past an ARAL gas station (left side of the street). After another 140 m, the B1 turns left into the valley, here you drive straight into the Bismarckstraße (sign "Max Planck Institute"). The third street on the right (with another sign "Max Planck Institute") leads after 300 m to the institute, entrance Lembkestraße.
Fast and comfortable train connections lead either to Essen (from north and east) or Duisburg (from south and west). S-Bahn trains from both stations take you to Mülheim Central Station in less than 10 minutes. Then you can take a cab to the institute, entrance Lembkestraße (5-10 minutes, about 5 Euro).
Alternatively, you can take the tram or bus from Mülheim (Ruhr) main station to the bus stop "Stadtmitte". From there, take tram 104 (direction main cemetery) to the stop "Max-Planck- Institute".
The walk from the train station to the institute takes about 20 minutes. The easiest route for a visitor leads through the Forum (shopping center) and then up the Kaiserstraße to a small park on the right. Crossing this park, you come to a road (Kluse), at the end of which you can see the laboratory tower. If you go to the left at the end of the laboratory tower, you will reach the entrance to the institute on Lembkestraße.
The easiest way to get to the institute from Dusseldorf airport is by cab (22 km, 20-30 minutes, approx. 40 Euro). If the cab driver is not familiar with the roads in Mülheim, you can follow the directions "by car".
There is also a direct train connection from Dusseldorf Airport to Mülheim Central Station. In each hour several different trains run with travel times of 15-27 minutes (IC, RE, S-Bahn, each in the direction of Dortmund). From Mülheim Central Station it is best to take a cab to the institute, entrance Lembkestraße (5-10 minutes). The train and cab ride costs are about 10 Euro.
From Frankfurt airport there are fast and direct train connections (IC, ICE) to Duisburg main station. From there, trains (S-Bahn, RE) go to Mülheim Central Station. The ride takes a total of 2 hours and costs about 75 euros. Then you can take a cab to the institute, entrance Lembkestraße.
