Chemists Reveal the Business Secret of a Catalyst
Chemists at the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis in Rostock were able to observe the molecular functioning of the catalyst in a redox reaction and identify important intermediate steps. For this purpose, they coupled, for the first time worldwide, four highly modern measuring methods that work in ...
Metha-Cycle decouples wind power from electricity demand
Chemists at the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis (LIKAT) in Rostock are able to produce hydrogen from methanol under mild conditions of less than one hundred degrees Celsius and ambient pressure, with the yield and purity required for fuel cells. To achieve this, they optimized a proprietary ...
Simplified Procedure for the Building Blocks of the Bio-Polymer PEF
Young researchers at the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis, LIKAT, in Rostock have developed a catalytic process for bio-polymers that runs under very mild conditions. The results are building blocks of the plastic PEF, a sustainable alternative to PET beverage packaging. The production of PEF ...
Realization of a "Dream Reaction": First direct carbonylation of 1,3-butadiene successful
A research team with leading participation of Evonik has achieved a breakthrough in the field of carbonylation chemistry. Carbonylation is one of the most important types of reaction in the chemical industry. It involves the catalyzed introduction of a CO group (carbonyl group) into organic ...
Evonik Industries and the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis (LIKAT) are planning to expand their cooperation in the area of catalysis research for the long term. The Institute has been successfully working with Evonik in the field of catalysis for more than ten years and the parties recently agreed ...
Convenient phenol oxidation with iron and hydrogen peroxide
The development of environmentally friendly and efficient catalysts is a major challenge in the field of chemical research, with the focus now being placed on the search for inexpensive metal catalysts. At the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis (LIKAT) in Rostock, Matthias Beller, the first ...
Room temperature is warm enough: hydrogen for fuel cells from formic acid
One of the central challenges of our time is the supply of enough environmentally friendly and resource-efficient energy to our society. In this context, hydrogen technology has taken on increased importance. Björn Loges, Albert Boddien, Henrik Junge, and Matthias Beller at the Leibniz Institute ...
