Inorganic Functional Materials

Dr. Sebastian Wohlrab


Development of functional materials for the intensification of sustainable process cycles


  • Materials and membranes for selective adsorption and mass separation
  • Membrane reactors for CO2-hydrogenations
  • Catalyst developments for application in sustainable process cycles and for exhaust gas catalysis
  • utilization of low-cost raw materials as catalyst precursors for large-scale technical processes
  • technical upscaling of catalyst syntheses
  • modelling of material properties


  • (High temperature) furnaces
  • Equipment for catalyst processing
  • autoclaves
  • Test rigs for membrane characterization
  • thermogravimetry
  • Adsorption test rigs


3 bilateral industrial projects, 8 public projects (BMBF, BMDK, WGL, DFG)
