The MPI for Chemical Energy Conversion sees it as its task to investigate fundamental chemical processes in energy transformation and thus to contribute to the development of new and efficient catalysts. Our approach to this problem is based on a profound understanding of the underlying chemical reactions. Only when we know in detail how the reaction mechanism looks – and above all how the catalyst is involved in it – we can develop improved and sustainable catalysts on a rational basis. For as Max Planck once said: "Insight must precede application."

Multidisciplinary research will be essential to achieve this goal. At the MPI CEC the fields of heterogeneous catalysis, molecular catalysis and inorganic spectroscopy are being explored in combination using state-of-the art experimental and theoretical analysis methods. We are convinced that this combination is the key to understanding and ultimately to controlling fundamental chemical processes.
