The Leibniz Institute for Catalysis at the University of Rostock (LIKAT) is one of the largest publicly funded research institute in the field of applied catalysis in Europe. The main areas of interest of the LIKAT are homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis. Our expertise involves development of methodology as well as application engineering.
The research is organized in the Program Departments 1-3 with the corresponding Research Departments:
- Applied Sustainable Catalytic Processes
Prof. Matthias Beller
- Innovative Methods and Technologies in Catalysis
Prof. Angelika Brückner
- Special (metal)organic Syntheses and Catalyses
Prof. Uwe Rosenthal
- Modern Concepts in Molecular Catalysis | Dr. habil. Torsten Beweries
- Hydrogenations and Hydroformylations | Prof. Armin Börner
- Biocatalysis & Polymer Chemistry | Prof. Udo Kragl
»Uni in Leibniz«
- Materials Design | Prof. Axel Schulz
- Vibrational Spectroscopy in Catalysis | Prof. Ralf Ludwig
- Numerical Analysis | Prof. Klaus Neymeyr
- Catalytic Cycloadditions | Prof. Marko Hapke
- Organocatalysis | Prof. Thomas Werner
- Photochemistry and Photocatalysis | Prof. Malte Brasholz
- Intermetallic cooperativity | Prof. Wolfram Seidel
- Junior Research Groups
The Research Departments are subdivided into several research topics. Within these, several scientists are conducting research under the guidance of a group leader.
In some Research Departments research is performed on explorative projects. In this context a project leader is supervising the exploration of new projects and ideas that are outside the scope of the original research program.
