Homogeneous Catalysis and Mechanistic Studies
Martin Klussmann has left the institute in Summer 2020 and is now working as Senior R&D Chemist at Borchers, Langenfeld. His e-mail address is: email@example.com. This webpage documents the activities of his group at the MPI für Kohlenforschung (until 2020).
The transition of chemical production to processes that are environmentally benign and sustainable is a big challenge for our society and for chemical research. Homogeneous catalysis can make a substantial contribution by developing processes that convert simple substrates into valuable products without using synthetic reagents in stoichiometric amounts or large amounts of energy. The development of such processes is the prime goal of our research group.
