First Erlangen Workshop on Chemical Solar Energy Conversion via Redox-Active Metal Centers

Erlangen, Germany
Monday, September 24 – Wednesday, September 26, 2007

Organizing committee

  • Karsten Meyer
  • Horst Kisch
  • Matthias Moll
  • Marc Gartner

Scope of the Workshop

After the 20th century has been known as the hydrocarbon century, great scientific effort is currently underway to transform the next hundred years into the hydrogen century. Hydrogen as non-polluting, CO2-free energy carrier is considered a solution to the problems of fossil fuel depletion and the growing environmental problems associated with the positive radioactive forcing linked to the greenhouse gases.

The main objective of this first workshop at Erlangen is an introduction to the advances in the field of chemical solar energy conversion via electron transfer reactions. The emphasis is placed on the splitting of water to oxygen and hydrogen utilizing sunlight as clean, renewable, and abundant source of energy.

Two leaders in the field of homogeneous and heterogeneous approaches to water splitting have been invited to present current challenges, advances, and perspectives in solar energy conversion:

Prof. Dr. Daniel G. Nocera
W.M. Keck Professor of Energy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA

Prof. Dr. D. G. Nocera received his early education at Rutgers University where he was a Henry Rutgers Scholar, obtaining a B.S. degree in 1979 with Highest Honors. He moved to Pasadena, California where he undertook graduate studies at the California Institute of Technology. After earning his Ph.D. degree in 1984, he went to East Lansing, Michigan to take up a faculty appointment at Michigan State University. He joined the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a Professor of Chemistry in 1997.

Prof. Dr. Akihiko Kudo
Tokyo University of Science, Tokyo, Japan

Prof. Dr. A. Kudo received his early education at the Tokyo University of Science obtaining a B.S. degree in 1983 and his Ph.D. degree in 1988 from Tokyo Institute of Technology. After one and a half years as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Texas in Austin, he became a Research Associate at the Tokyo Institute of Technology until 1995. He then joined the Tokyo University of Science as Lecturer before he became Associate Professor in 1998 and Full Professor in 2003.

The workshop is organized and funded by the Collaborative Research Center SFB 583 „Redox-Active Metal Complexes – Control of Reactivity via Molecular Architecture“. This research effort aims at the discovery of elementary reactions that result in complex-catalyzed redox transformation of small molecules like N2, O2 H2, CO2 and H2O, and has a focus on understanding the directing role of the molecular architecture of the reactive species.

Workshop venue

The meeting will be held at the Institute for Inorganic Chemistry of the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg in Erlangen.
Erlangen, situated in the north of Bavaria, is a vibrant city of 103,000 inhabitants, with 25,000 students contributing to the lively spirit of a major university.
