The activities of the Steinrück group focus on the area of surface and interface science at the border between chemistry and physics. Main research interests are the development of new materials with novel electronic, geometric and chemical properties, the investigation of elementary steps of surface reactions, and the construction of advanced scientific apparatus.
These studies aim at a fundamental physical and chemical understanding of the mechanisms and processes involved, at the molecular level. The Steinrück group has performed outstanding research and received highest international recognition in the following areas of fundamental research: Surface and interface properties of ionic liquids, model studies for hydrogen storage in liquid organic hydrogen carriers, surface chemistry of redox-active metalloporphyrins, in situ studies of surface reactions, chemical modification of supported graphene, and electron beam induced deposition (EBID) of nanostructures on different surfaces. For these studies, a large variety of state-of-the art spectroscopic or microscopic techniques is applied, partly utilizing synchrotron radiation.
