Programme Structure

  • Research projects range from the design of new types of molecular catalysts and the elucidation of fundamental reaction mechanisms to the synthesis of polymers or natural substances with a focus on industrial applications. Many of the projects require close interdisciplinary cooperation between individual research groups. Intensive support and a critical analysis of results at collaborative events allow the groups to make rapid progress with their work.
  • The carefully selected teaching programme comprises lectures and block courses on important aspects and methods of catalytic chemistry. Furthermore, the programme also includes a doctoral seminar and conferences in which students present their research results and therefore acquire highly important skills. Close cooperation with partner institutes such as the Institute Catala d’Investigacio Quimica (ICIQ) in Tarragona (Spain) makes it possible to conduct research activities abroad.
