Department of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry at the Technical University of Munich has taken great efforts to meet the requirements of a rapidly changing scientific environment.
We offer a broad diversity of subjects: The traditional areas of Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Physical Chemistry have been enriched by Chemical Technology, Radiochemistry, Food Chemistry, Theoretical Chemistry, and Hydrochemistry many years ago. The last years saw new expansions into the fields of Biochemistry and Construction Chemistry.
ERC Starting Grants: Success for seven chemistry, medicine and physics projects
[03.09.2019] The European Research Council (ERC) has announced that seven of its prestigious ERC Starting Grants will be awarded to scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) this year. The subject matter of the projects ranges from new cancer immune therapies to the atomic-level analysis of catalytic reactions. The ERC is also funding three additional projects with Proof-of-Concept Grants. [more...]
Modelling leads to the optimum size for platinum fuel cell catalysts
[03.07.2019] An interdisciplinary research team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has built platinum nanoparticles for catalysis in fuel cells: The new size-optimized catalysts are twice as good as the best process commercially available today. [more...]
[06.11.2018] Nach einer europaweiten Studie ist die Gefahr, an multiresistenten Keimen zu erkranken, deutlich höher, als bisher angenommen. Wir besuchen einen Spitzenforscher, der den Kampf gegen die mitunter tödlichen Erreger aufgenommen hat.
