Interface Chemistry and Surface Engineering
The Department of Interface Chemistry and Surface Engineering (GO) is mainly focussing on corrosion and electrochemical energy conversion. It is internationally known to be one of the leading groups in the field of electrochemical sciences. Our mission is to combine both fundamental and applied sciences to tackle key-questions for a progress towards new or better, energy saving and efficient, cheaper and longer lasting materials for applications as structural (in particular steels and other alloys) and functional materials, e.g. for fuel cell catalysts, pre-treatments and smart coatings amongst others.
