Robert Schlögl, Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, Berlin, Germany, and Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion, Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany, celebrates his 65th birthday on February 23, 2019. Schlögl’s research focuses on heterogeneous catalysis, the development of materials for energy storage, and large-scale chemical energy conversion.
Robert Schlögl studied chemistry at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LUM), Germany, where he received his Ph.D. in 1982. He then did postdoctoral research at the Universities of Cambridge, UK, and Basel, Switzerland. Schlögl completed his habilitation at the Fritz Haber Institute in 1989. The same year, he joined the University of Frankfurt am Main, Germany, as Full Professor of Inorganic Chemistry. Since 1994, Schlögl has served as Director at the Fritz-Haber-Institute and Honorary Professor at the Technical University of Berlin. He was also named Honorary Professor at the Humboldt University of Berlin in 1998. Since 2011, he has been Founding Director at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion. He has also been named Honorary Professor at the University Duisburg-Essen, Germany, in 2012 and Honorary Professor at the Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB), Germany, in 2015.
Among other honors, Schögl has received the DECHEMA-Plaque in 2010, the Alwin Mittasch Prize in 2015, and the Innovation Award 2015 from the Ministry for Innovation, Science, Research and Technology (MIWF) of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Düsseldorf, Germany. He serves on the Editorial Board of ChemCatChem and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).
