Call for nominations for the Alwin Mittasch Prize for Catalysis Research

22.09.2011
Nominations are requested for the Alwin Mittasch Prize 2012 which is awarded to international scientists who have made outstanding contributions towards extending the fundamentals of catalysis and its exemplary industrial application. The Prize is endowed with 10,000 Euro and sponsored by BASF SE; it is awarded every three years.

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.

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

Im Focus: Hydrogen Bonds Directly Detected for the First Time

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.

Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
