The nominations are evaluated by an experts committee comprised of members from academia and industry. The award ceremony will take place during the Interna-tional Congress of Catalysis 2012 in Munich.
Nominations should be submitted before November 15th, 2011, to DECHEMA, c/o Prof. Kurt Wagemann, Theodor-Heuss-Allee 25, 60486 Frankfurt. Besides a detailed justification of the proposal, the candidate's CV and list of publications and patents should be included. Submission of exemplary publications in internationally renowned scientific journals as well as references letters from industry is also appreciated. Self-nominations are not accepted.
The Alwin Mittasch Prize was initiated by BASF AG in 1990, originally as the Alwin Mittasch Medal. It is named after the developer of the first catalyst for ammonia syn-thesis. Former prize-winners include Prof. Dr. Gerhard Ertl, Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (1990), Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Keim, RWTH Aachen (1998), Prof. Dr. Jens Weitkamp, Universität Stuttgart and Prof. Dr. Jens. K. Norskov, Universität Lyngby (both 2009); a complete list is available online on http://www.dechema.de/index.php?id=78834&nonactive=1&lang=de.

An important step towards a completely new experimental access to quantum physics has been made at University of Konstanz. The team of scientists headed by...
Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...
Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
