Currently, key concepts in Solvation Science are firmly established in terms of global properties of homogeneous bulk systems at thermodynamic equilibrium conditions. However, it is intriguing to see how local solvation phenomena in nanoheterogeneous environments determine the reactivity and selectivity in solution as well as the function of electrocatalysts, receptors, and enzymes.  In RESOLV we wish to extend those global concepts into spatially and time-resolved properties and establish new concepts of relevance to Solvation Science. We will tackle this grand theme by introducing

COORDINATOR OF RESEARCH AREA B Please contact: Prof. Dr. W. Sander  SCIENTISTS INVOLVED Read more Solutes imprint their shape (molecular structure, charge distribution) on the surrounding solvent shells, thus creating solvent arrangements that both in structure and dynamics deviate from the bulk. This so-called ‘solvent shaping’ in the vicinity of reaction centers, whether an enzyme or a catalytic encounter complex, has emerged as an underlying theme to enable the optimization of both yield and selectivity. Most elementary chemical reaction steps occur on time scales from femto-

PNAS: An international research team including the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion (MPICEC) in Germany and The Australian National University (ANU) has published new results on how nature performs biological water splitting, a process that underpins all life on the planet. The results can be valuable for the production of CO2 free ‘solar fuels’.
