The companies TANIOBIS (formerly: HC Starck Tantalum & Niobium) and HC Starck Tungsten alternately sponsor the award for the best doctoral thesis in the field of inorganic Solid-State Chemistry and Materials Research . The prize is awarded annually by the Solid State Chemistry & Materials division of the German Chemical Society (GDCh). The award includes an award certificate and prize money of 5000 euros.
The TANIOBIS Promotion Prize (formerly: HC Starck Tantalum & Niobium Promotion Prize) for solid-state Inorganic Chemistry and Solid-State Chemistry and Materials Research was given to Dr. Pascal Cop awarded in recognition of his outstanding dissertation with the title:
"CeO 2 -based nanostructures as model catalysts for HCl oxidation".
Dr. Cop's creative, in-depth and pioneering work on CeO 2 -based nanostructures represents excellent basic research and at the same time addresses a very topical and socially relevant topic, namely the maximization of the efficiency of chemical reactions, which, for example, enable efficient exhaust gas cleaning and are indispensable in large-scale industry. The HCl oxidation plays a very important role from an environmental point of view. Dr. Cop's investigations into the deactivation of the catalyst could in the future contribute to the optimization of catalyst materials for mass technologies and thus to the sustainability of various chemical processes. The dissertation was carried out in the group of Prof. Dr. Bernd Smarsly at the Justus Liebig University in Giessen.
The HC Starck Tungsten PhD award 2019 for Solid-State Chemistry and Materials Research research was given in equal parts to Dr. Heidi Schwartz and Dr. Simon Kloß forgive.
Dr. Heidi Annemarie Schwartz received the award for her outstanding dissertation on the topic of "Metal-Organic Frameworks as Crystalline Porous Hosts for Photoactive Molecules" and for the pioneering work on structure-property relationships of organometallic framework compounds as crystalline, porous host structures for photoactive molecules.
Dr. Simon David Kloß was recognized for his outstanding dissertation on " The High-Pressure Metathesis Route for the Preparation of Rare-Earth and Transition Metal Nitridophosphates " and for the pioneering discoveries in the field of rare earth and transition metal nitridophosphates as well as for the development of a groundbreaking one new method of high pressure metathesis to open up new areas in nitridophosphate chemistry.
