In 2018, the 12th Otto Roelen Medal will be awarded for an outstanding achievement in catalysis research. DECHEMA and the German Catalysis Society (GeCatS) invite researchers and scientists to propose international candidates who have made significant contributions in this field, especially with regard to application-oriented research.
The Otto Roelen Medal is endowed with 5,000 Euro and sponsored by the Oxea Group. Nominations will be evaluated by the Expert Committee of the Otto Roelen Medal.
The prize will be awarded in a public ceremony at the Annual Meeting of German Catalysis Researchers in March 2018 in Weimar/Germany.
Proposals for nominations should be submitted before 15th September 2017.
Proposals should be accompanied by a detailed justification, the candidate’s CV and a list of publications and patents. Submission of exemplary publications in internationally renowned scientific journals as well as reference letters from industry is also appreciated. Self-nominations are not accepted.
The Otto Roelen Medal was initiated in 1997 by Hoechst AG and is named after the discoverer of hydroformulation.
Originally limited to the field of homogeneous catalysis, the prize is now open to international researchers in the whole field of catalysis.
Former award-winners include Prof. Dr. Matthias Beller, Institut für Organische Katalyseforschung (1997), Prof. Dr. Kay Severin, ETH Lausanne/CH (2005), Prof. Dr. Michael Buchmeiser, Universität Stuttgart (2010), Prof. Dr. Javier Pérez-Ramírez, ETH Zürich/CH (2012), Prof. Dr. Harald Gröger, University of Bielefeld (2014) and Prof. Dr. Peter Strasser, TU Berlin (2016).

The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT and Rapid Shape GmbH are working together to further develop resin-based 3D printing. The new “TwoCure” process requires no support structures and is significantly more efficient and productive than conventional 3D printing techniques for plastic components. Experts from Fraunhofer ILT will be presenting the state-funded joint development that makes use of the interaction of light and cold in forming the components at formnext 2017 from November 14 to 17 in Frankfurt am Main.
Much like stereolithography, one of the best-known processes for printing 3D plastic components works using photolithographic light exposure that causes liquid...
A team of researchers led by Prof. Wolfram Pernice from the Institute of Physics at Münster University has developed a miniature abacus on a microchip which calculates using light signals. With it they are paving the way to the development of new types of computer in which, as in the human brain, the computing and storage functions are combined in one element.
Researchers at the universities of Münster, Exeter and Oxford have developed a miniature “abacus” which can be used for calculating with light signals. With it...
Extremely short electron bunches are key to many new applications including ultrafast electron microscopy and table-top free-electron lasers. A german team of physicists from Rostock University, the Max Born Institute in Berlin, the Ludwig-Maxmilians-Universität Munich, and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching has now shown how electrons can be accelerated in an extreme and well-controlled way with laser light, while crossing a silver particle of just a few nanometers.
Of particular importance for potential applications is the ability to manipulate the acceleration process, known as a swing-by maneuver from space travel, with...
Cancer cells can reactivate a cellular process that is an essential part of embryonic development. This allows them to leave the primary tumor, penetrate the surrounding tissue and form metastases in peripheral organs. In the journal Nature Communications, researchers from the University of Basel’s Department of Biomedicine provide an insight into the molecular networks that regulate this process.
During an embryo’s development, epithelial cells can break away from the cell cluster, modify their cell type-specific properties, and migrate into other...
