Prof. Dr. Guido Kickelbick
The focus of our research is the tailoring of the inorganic-organic interface in hybrid materials and nanocomposites with special interest in a controlled design of inorganic building blocks such as nanoparticles. The large interface area in these materials requires a specific knowledge in tailoring the chemistry between inorganic and organic moieties. The controlled design of the interface allows the induction of new properties in the final material. Our research is highly interdisciplinary between the fields of inorganic, organic, and polymer chemistry and utilizes a broad spectrum of techniques like X-ray diffraction, common spectroscopic methods, thermo-analytical methods or mechanical tests.

Speciation and elemental analyis
(apl. Prof. Dr. Ralf Kautenburger)
The research group WASTe (Working group for Analytical Speciation Techniques) is mainly focused on element trace and speciation analysis as well as on the development of innovative coupling techniques
Nov 8, 2022 | Lecture Series „Spaceship Earth“
The lecture series „Spaceship Earth“ enters the next round. Climate change is in focus, relating to far more scientific fields than only the (physical) climate research in the proper sense. Chemistry, Informatics, Medicine, Economics and many other bring their own view on climate change and climate protection. In a 12-part lecture series, experts from different fields examine their perspective on these topics. The lectures are open to the public from November 8 via livestream. The lecture series organised by Prof. Guido Kickelbick starts today with his lecture on „Climate-affecting Gases -Impact, Formation, Prevention“.

Oct 13, 2022 | Prof. Guido Kickelbick presents his scientific field in „Die Zeit“
What is Inorganic Solid State Chemistry all about? The weekly newspaper "Die Zeit" examines this question by an interview with the professor of Inorganic Solid State Chemistry Dr. Guido Kickelbick and the Chemistry-student Christopher Luckas.
Oct 1, 2022 | Prof. Guido Kickelbick elected speaker of the Conference of Chemistry Departments
The Conference of Chemistry Departments (KFC) is the association of the Chemistry Fields and Departments of universities and higher education institutions in Germany. It comprises about 60 institutions. Its main task is taking care of common matters in science and teaching of the participating departments. It represents the interests of Chemistry departments towards politics, expert associations and society.
