About the Institute


The Institute is a centre of fundamental research in physical chemistry, electrochemistry and chemical physics (short history). The research work is characterized by many cross-links both within the Institute and also with other institutions in Europe, the U.S.A., Japan and other parts of the world. Much of the scientific work is concerned with fundamental research, but several groups, in particular in catalysis and electrochemistry, are also making contributions in more applied aspects. Besides the research activities the Institute is strongly involved in training of both undergraduate and graduate students, supervising their diploma and Ph.D. theses, and in teaching at universities.

In the Institute work at present about 165 full-time employees and approximately 45 graduate students. Roughly 70 per cent of the personnel are engaged in research, the remaining staff provides technical and administrative services.

Members of the Institute publish each year approximately 250 research papers, for the most part in impacted international journals (in 2016: 187 articles in journals with an average impact factor of 4.22), several books or chapters in monographs, and a number of communications in proceedings of scientific meetings.
