Our Library founded in 1912 serves the five chemical departments by buying, collecting and archiving books and journals from the field of chemical catalysis. It focuses on organometallic, theoretical, polymer and coal chemistry as well as on materials science.

17.000+ books and monographs and 630 dissertations reflect various aspects of catalysis. Our holdings contain a large collection of recent and many older print-journals. 170+ subscribed journals are electronically catalogued and linked with their digital equivalents.

The library serves above all to supply literature to scientists working at the Institutes, but is also open to all external scholars working in the Institutes' areas of research
