Teaching

The courses of Technische Chemie II address students specializing on technical chemistry, chemical engineering and all who are interested in catalysis. In teaching our main focus lies on kinetics of heterogeneous catalyzed reactions, the description of catalytic surfaces and industrial chemical processes.

Furthermore, we provide insights into laboratories and operations of technical chemistry during a practical course.

We are happy to offer several projects to students to write their Bachelor's or Master's thesises or to complete research internships in one of our research areas. Please don't hestitate to contact the co-investigators or PhD students directly. A list of topics can be found below.
