Our research is multidisciplinary in nature. In the last several years, numerous fruitful collaborations with researchers in a variety of specialties have been established. A large part of our success is because of these collaborations with specialists in materials synthesis and characterization, surface scientists, electrochemists, and chemical engineers.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of our collaborations (continuously updating).
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bastian Etzold (Germany) – ionic liquid modified electrocatalyst
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrike Krewer (Germany) – electrochemical microkinetic modelling
Prof. Dr. Olaf Magnussen (Germany) – platinum single crystals oxidation and dissolution
Prof. Dr. Christina Scheu and Dr. Siyuan Zhang (Germany) – photoelectrochemistry and microscopy
Prof. Dr. Peter Strasser (Germany) – supported electrocatalysts for PEM fuel cells and water electrolysers
Prof. Dr. Matthias Arenz (Switzerland) – “tool-box” synthesized nanoparticles for PEM fuel cells and water electrolysers
Prof. Dr. Ib Chorkendorff (Denmark) – size selected Pt clusters
