Welcome to the chair of Electrobiochemistry!

Bacteria that can exchange electrons with their environment are an exciting biological phenomenon. But they also allow the development of new environmental and biotechnologies - such as the generation of electrical energy from wastewater and sediments in microbial fuel cells, and the synthesis of organic matter by "feeding" bacteria with electric current and carbon dioxide. The core of our research is the study of the underlying mechanisms and the development of new technologies for sustainable development. 

We are futher dedicated to concepts of sustainable chemistry - such as the electrosynthesis based on biogenic compounds - and issues of environmental chemistry.
