Trends in Solid State Chemistry 2011

H. Nuss, C. Roth

In the last year, solid-state chemistry has gone to its limits – and beyond. Nanotechnology, physics, organic solid-state chemistry, and materials science applications have complemented and enriched traditional solid-state chemistry. Several length- and timescales were applied to questions on energy, functional hybrid materials, alternative synthetic routes, and to elucidate unusual physical properties.

Hanne NussHanne Nuss, born 1978, is a Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Solid-State Research in Stuttgart and a Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Aalen, both Germany. She studied chemistry at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, and she obtained her Ph.D. in the group of Martin Jansen at the Max Planck Institute for Solid-State Research in Stuttgart in 2002. After postdoctoral study at the University of Nancy, France, from 2008–2009, she returned to Stuttgart and is currently working towards her Habilitation on the chemistry of metastable anions as well as the study of metal-metal and metal-ligand interactions in 1D metal-chain complexes, including experimental electron-density determination from high-resolution X-ray data.

Christina RothChristina Roth, born 1974, has been an Affiliated Professor at the Department of Materials Science at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany, since July 2011. She studied material science at the Technical University of Darmstadt, where she obtained her Ph.D. in 2002 under Hartmut Fuess. This was followed by research in Poitiers, France, and Liverpool, UK, funded by a Feodor-Lynen Fellowship. From 2004 to 2011, she served as Assistant Professor in the field of “renewable energy” and obtained her Habilitation in 2008. Since March 2011, she has been the Head of the Institute of Applied Functional Composite Materials, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany.

Her research interests include electrochemical energy technology, in particular, fuel cells and redox flow batteries, and the development of in-situ methods, such as X-ray absorption spectroscopy in operando for real systems.
