Fundamentals of Energy Conversion Processes


A DFG Cluster of Excellence


  • e-conversion at Streetlife Festival May 2019

Lemons full of energy

May 27, 2019|

The e-conversion stand at the Munich Streetlife Festival in May was a great success. Many people tried the hands-on experiments and informed themselves about the cluster activities. Hope to see you again at the next festival on September 7-8, 2019!

Efficient catalyst for water splitting

May 22, 2019|

Chemists of the e-conversion cluster have developed an efficient water splitting catalyst as part of a collaborative international research effort. The catalyst comprises a double-helix semiconductor structure encased in carbon nitride. It is perfect for producing hydrogen economically and sustainably.
