Wider commercialization and use of clean and efficient energy conversion technologies are limited in large parts by the lack of suitable functional performance materials.
- Affordable hydrogen fuel cells require novel low Pt active and stable membranes.
- Advanced Lithium ion batteries will not be possible without new efficient and safe Li storage electrode materials.
- Photoelectrocatalytic hydrogen production devices demand photoefficient low band-gap semiconductors with efficient gas evolution catalyst coatings.
- And efficient dark electrolysis cells for storage and conversion of exsess grid electricity require efficient and stable oxygen evolution electrocatalysts.

Our research is focused on the Materials Science
and Catalysis of nanostructured materials for clean energy storage and
conversion technologies such as hydrogen fuel cells, high energy
density batteries, (photo)electrochemical conversion of solar
energy/electricity into fuels and chemicals. Our research contributes
to our fundamental understanding of these technologies and their
devices and will help lay the foundations to make future clean energy
technologies a reality. As such, we contribute to a wider introduction
of electromobility and excess electricity storage and conversion, two
of today`s key technology thrust.
Our research is embedded in the research cluster of excellence 'Unicat' ("Unifying concepts in catalysis") at the Technical University of Berlin. Unicat is a multi-year interdisciplinary research center involving a large number of research groups and topics centered around the central theme of chemical catalysis. We are providing expertise, knowledge and skills in electrochemistry, electrocatalysis and electrochemical energy conversion.
