Scientific Career

The work focuses on preparation, characterization and catalytic properties of molecular transition metal compounds on surfaces of solids (Surface Organometallic Chemistry, molecular heterogeneous catalysis). The synthesis of solids and the modification of their surfaces aim on new materials and catalysts with tailored properties. Catalytic reactions include nitrogen oxide abatement, selective oxidation of hydrocarbons, hydrogenations and catalysis for fine chemical synthesis as for CC coupling reactions.

Klaus Köhler, Professor of Inorganic Chemistry, TU Munich, since 1996. He received the diploma degree (1985) and doctoral degree Dr. rer. Nat. (1988) from the University of Leipzig. Postdoc positions followed 1990-93 at the University of Fribourg, 1993-94 at the ETH Zurich (both Switzerland) and 1994-96 at the Fritz Haber Institute (Max Planck Society) in Berlin, 1996 habilitation at the Technische Universität Berlin. 1996 he accepted a call for to TUM.
