(University of Erlangen-Nuremberg) Very few scientists receive such awards. Peter Wasserscheid, Professor for Chemical Reaction Engineering at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg has been awarded an Advanced Investigator Grant from the European Research Council for the second time. With the grant of €2.5 million, Wasserscheid intends to push forward research into a fundamental new concept for catalysis that is based on the reaction-accelerating effect of metal droplets with a low melting point.
