… COORDINATOR OF RESEARCH AREA C Please contact: Prof. Dr. D. Marx  Interfaces play a dominant role in molecular science. Heterogeneous catalysis is the prime example where reactions are accelerated due to the presence of surfaces including catalytically active liquid/solid interfaces. Within the last decades, surface science has triggered an impressive boost in the molecular understanding of catalytic processes. However, so far this has mainly been restricted to reactions at the gas-solid interface. Close to nothing is known about how reactants get de-solvated, intermediates stabilized, and products…

… interplay between hydrophobic and hydrophilic interactions. Water at protein interfaces (hydration water or interfacial water) has been shown to thermodynamically stabilize the native structure of bio-macromolecules, to affect protein flexibility, and to contribute to molecular recognition in enzyme catalysis. Protein-water interactions are now known to shape the “free energy folding funnel” that drives protein folding. Connecting solvation dynamics with biomolecular function within RESOLV will open the way to achieving breakthroughs from understanding protein misfolding and formation of amyloid fibrils…

… research consortium California explores Solvation (CALSOLV). Since 2014, Berkeley scientists address the intricate details of solvation in close collaboration with the researchers in Germany. The RESOLV/CALSOLV partnership thrives on topics such as X-ray spectroscopy of liquids and solutions, enzyme catalysis, and ab initio calculations of solvated structures and chemical reactions. The RuhrCal collaboration has started to produce multiple joint publications. California explores Solvation - CalSOLV “Collaboration between scientists from Berkeley and the RESOLV cluster would greatly expedite the…

…ing speech with the title “From damnation to solvation”. Prof. Dr. Irit Sagi from the Weizmann Institute in Israel and representative of the “International Faculty Solvation Science” will then follow up by opening the scientific part of the Symposium; she will highlight the role of water in enzymatic catalysis. Novel perspective: solvents as active players The majority of chemical reactions, including those that are central to many important industrial and biological processes, take place within a liquid environment. Water is the most prominent example of such a solvent. The process of solvation itself, i.e.…
