Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung
The Max‐Planck‐Institut für Kohlenforschung was founded in 1912 and is located in Mülheim an der Ruhr.
It is a foundation of private law controlled by a board of governors. It pursues basic research in all fields of catalysis. The central theme pervading all departments is basic research in the catalytic transformation of compounds and materials with the highest degree of chemo‐, regio‐ and stereoselectivity under conditions which maximize efficient use of natural resources.
One of the five departments is linked to the IMPRS‐SurMat:
- Heterogeneous Catalysis
