Dear Reader,

I am proud to present you the 2017 Edition of the Research Report of our Faculty. As in previous years, this report has been compiled and edited by Master students of our Faculty under the mentorship of Prof. Nicolas Plumeré as part of their introductory training course "Introduction to the Scientific Community". My warmest thanks to them and to all other contributors!
The year 2017 has been a very successful one for our Faculty. Our research output is again summarized on more than 15 pages of publications. Moreover, each of our 34 research groups (regardless of status of the PI) presents their “best” paper of the year on one page. Even a quick glance over these Research Highlight pages gives you an impression of the amazing diversity and quality of the work that is done in our Faculty. This quality is also reflected in our successes in attracting outside funding, where our Faculty ranks second amongst all Chemistry Departments in Germany in the recent DFG report, and by the fact that we have four ERC grant holders among our colleagues.
My special congratulations go to our 74 PhD graduates from the 2017 year. My best wishes to them, and also to all colleagues and coworkers in our Faculty, as well as to our students.

Enjoy reading!

Nils Metzler-Nolte
Dean of the Faculty

Research report and publications 2017

Another year has passed, in which the scientific work groups at the Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum have again accomplished a lot. This report highlights the diversity of research performed in the year 2017.
In the tradition of the last years, the report was again organized by the participants of the internship “Introduction to the Scientific Community” (ITSC). The participating master students have been in contact with the principal investigators of the faculty to collect the highlights and edit them into this annual faculty report. This was a valuable experience for all students involved within this project, initiating contact and knowledge exchange between students and researchers. The teamwork of all ITSC participants was excellent and the insights gained into the research of the Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry was a very valuable chance.
For more informations on the scientific content of this volume, you are welcome to contact the research groups directly via the links, email-adresses or phone numbers provided in the faculty report.
We hope you enjoy reading.
With the best wishes,

Faculty Report Team of the ITSC internship 2017/18
