… COORDINATOR OF RESEARCH AREA III Please contact: Prof. Dr. R. Winter  SCIENTISTS INVOLVED Read more Restricted solvation on surfaces, chemical reactivity in nanoconfined water, pressure modulation of reactivity and phase behavior, and cryochemistry are all linked by a single concept: ‘Stressed solvent’. The notion of a stressed solvent implies the tuning of solvent properties and function without changing of the solvent itself. Therefore, in this area, we consider high pressure, low temperature, and strong confinement as key stressors that enable us to rigorously modulate solvation properties without…

… Under the direction of theoretical chemist Teresa Head-Gordon and laser spectroscopist Richard Saykally, several groups at UC Berkeley have established the local 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…

… Facts & Figures Solvation Science ALIVE fileadmin/Bilder/Marquard/Loesungsmittelchemie_Organische_Chemie_KM-8_copy_Copyright.jpg FACTS RESOLV is a cluster of excellence within the German Excellence Initiative (DFG code EXC 2033). RESOLV is short for Ruhr Explores Solvation, it has already been funded during the period 2012-2018. The new RESOLV officially started in January 2019. Within the Cluster, a growing number of scientist successfully investigate the role of solvents in the most diverse processes, thus laying the foundations for innovative green and smart solutions. RESOLV’s logo is a blue…

… students are the future scientists. With the  Alfried Krupp School Laboratory, RESOLV wants to give students of age 14-16 the opportunity to perform their first inquiries and experiments. But RESOLV aims also at the teachers of those students: In 2017 we prepared a special issue on Solvation in the renewed magazine "Chemie in unserer Zeit". On the other hand we organize workshops, events and excursions to bring RESOLV in touch with the industry: For example, in 2015 RESOLV participated as exhibitor at the  ACHEMA2015, a chemical industry fair.  Explore…
