Nachrichten aus der Chemie (the membership magazine of the GDCh) annually publishes trend reports in which authors spot and compile an overview of inspiring work and recent trends in the most important chemical disciplines.

ChemViews gives you an overview of the latest trend report, its authors and the literature collected.

Trends in Technical Chemistry 2011

L. Ott, L. Blank, T. Tacke

Molecular modeling helps in process development. Production processes use ionic liquids already as a matter of course; newer are solar cells. Industrial biotechnology continues to be one of the trends in the chemical industry.

Lothar Ott, born 1976, studied chemistry at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany. In 2005, he joined Lonza AG, Visp, Switzerland, as a process engineer and in 2007 was promoted to Project Evaluator. In 2009, he became Director of Innovation and External Collaborations in the chemical research department of Lonza.

Lars BlankLars M. Blank is full professor of Applied Microbiology at the RWTH Aachen University, Germany. He studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Dortmund and Biology at the Ruhr-University of Bochum, both Germany. He gained his Ph.D. at the University of Queensland, Australia, and did a postdoctoral fellowship at the Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina, Halle, Germany. He led the group Systems Biotechnology at the Laboratory of Chemical Biotechnology of the Technische Universität Dortmund, Germany, where he finalized his Habilitation in January 2010. In his research, Blank focuses on the analysis, design, and synthesis of metabolic networks of microbes.

Thomas TackeThomas Tacke, born 1962, has spent more than 25 years at Degussa, now Evonik, Hanau, Germany, in the development and commercialization of industrial catalysts. After conducting activities in R&D and production and engineering, in 2011, he took up the role of sales manager for catalysts for Evonik.
