|| Short Bio
Robert Schlögl studied chemistry and completed his PhD on graphite
intercalation compounds at the Ludwig Maximilians University in
Munich (1982). After postdoctoral stays at Cambridge and Basle he
carried out his habilitation under the supervision of Professor
Ertl (Nobel Laureate) at Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin (1989).
Later he accepted the call for a Full Professorship of Inorganic
Chemistry at Frankfurt University. In 1994 he was appointed his
current position as Director at the Fritz Haber Institute of the
Max Planck Society in Berlin. In addition, in 2011 he was appointed
Founding Director at the new Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy
Conversion in Mülheim a.d. Ruhr. He is an Honorary Professor
at Technical University Berlin, Humboldt University Berlin, University
Duisburg-Essen and Ruhr University Bochum. Robert Schlögl's
research focuses primarily on the investigation of heterogeneous
catalysts, with the aim to combine scientific with technical applicability
as well as on the development of nanochemically-optimized materials
for energy storage. The application of knowledge-based heterogeneous
catalysis for large-scale chemical energy conversion summarizes
his current research focus.
He is author of more than 1,000 publications, gave more than 450
invited talks and lectures and is registered inventor of more than
20 patent families. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry,
Tetelman Fellow and member of numerous international organizations.
His research activities have been recognized with several national
and international awards.
