The quest for the dream reaction

While politicians are struggling for mandatory solutions to limit carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, Dr Corina Andronescu is researching a complementary solution – the electrochemical conversion of CO2into usable fuels such as methanol, called "Dream Reaction". In December, she was appointed junior professor for electrochemical catalysis at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE).

The printed nanolayer

Solar and fuel cells, LEDs, batteries – many sustainable technologies already contain nanoparticles. But still there are hardly any scalable processes for the production in industrial dimensions. That’s what Prof. Dr. Doris Segets wants to change. She took up the professorship for “Process Engineering of Electrochemical Functional Materials” at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE). Already, she has been appointed to the board of directors of the NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum (NETZ).

2nd Materials Chain International Conference

From all over the world to the Ruhr

2nd Materials Chain International Conference

For the second time, the Materials Chain International Conference (MCIC) was organized by the correspondent flagship program of the University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr). This year it took place in Bochum from November 12 to 14. About 200 international scientists gathered at the second MCIC to discuss their latest results and to network with high-ranking invited speakers from other renowned institutes such as Oxford, Berkeley or Harvard.
