Storing power from renewable energy sources is a challenge. Nicolas Plumeré wants to meet that challenge with funding from the European Research Council. For his research Dr Nicolas Plumeré has received 1.5 million Euro for five years from the European Research Council (ERC). The head of the RUB Molecular Nanostructures Research Group has received one of the prestigious ERC Starting Grants. Plumeré wants to use the funds to move closer to applications for highly active, but fragile catalysts for energy conversion. Instead of platinum It is a challenge to transform energy from renewable

Nature Chem.: RUB researchers unmask Janus-faced nature of mechanical forces with the Jülich supercomputer. Reaction speed does not always increase in proportion to the applied force. The harder you pull, the quicker it goes. At least, that used to be the rule in mechanochemistry, a method that researchers apply to set chemical reactions in motion by means of mechanical forces. However, as chemists led by Professor Dominik Marx, Chair of Theoretical Chemistry at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum now report in the journal “Nature Chemistry”, more force cannot in fact be translated one to one into a
