Prof. Dr. Hans-Peter Steinrück

Chair of Physical Chemistry II

  • Research into surfaces and interfaces between chemistry and physics with a special focus on topics relevant to energy
  • Fundamental research into new and innovative energy storage media such as liquid organic hydrogen carriers and strained organic molecules
  • Fundamental research into lowering energy input, reducing emissions and improving the carbon balance in chemical technical processes (primarily new catalytic materials, for example, liquid alloys, ionic liquids or nanoclusters supported by graphene)
  • 2016 ERC Advanced Grant for fundamental research on ionic liquids
