Catalysis significantly affects our way of life. Catalysis plays an important role in many biological and technological processes.  For example, the world’s food supply is based on a famous catalytic process – the Haber Bosch process, that converts hydrogen and nitrogen into ammoniac which is then used as the central ingredient for fertilizers.  Gaining improved understanding of catalysis at the fundamental level of atomic orbitals, chemical interactions, energetics and symmetry is a very active field in chemistry.

Kohlenstoff und Stickstoff sind in elementarer Form weitgehend unreaktiv, daher werden in der organischen Synthese häufig reaktive Verbindungen, wie Ammoniak, zur C–N Bindungsbildung eingesetzt. Überraschenderweise gelang es Wissenschaftler_innen am MPI nun, CCN3– aus den Elementen darzustellen – ein lang gesuchtes quasi organisches Molekülanion. Das Anion ist im Wirtsgerüst des Ba5[TaN4][C2N]-Nitridometallats stabilisiert. Die hohe Reaktivität von CCN3– könnte bei organischen Synthesen hilfreich sein.

Binghai Yan has been working as a group leader in the solid-state chemistry department of Prof. Claudia Felser since 2012. In Feb 2017 he is appointed as an assistant professor in the department of condensed matter physics, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. In the new institute, he will continue his theoretical research on emerging topological materials, not least in cooperation with the Felser group.

A Weyl semimetal is a topologically non-trivial phase of matter that hosts mass-less Weyl fermions, particles that remained elusive for more than 80 years since their theoretical prediction by the German mathematical physicist Hermann Weyl in 1929, but discovered experimentally only in 2015.

Wenn es gelingt, moderne Materialien gezielt zu manipulieren, können dramatische Änderungen auftreten. Mit uniaxialem Druck ist es uns gelungen, die Topologie der elektronischen Struktur des unkonventionellen Supraleiters Sr2RuO4 zu beeinflussen. Damit einher geht eine Verdoppelung der supraleitenden Sprungtemperatur. Messungen in verschiedenen Magnetfeldern geben Hinweise auf den Charakter der Supraleitung in diesem Material.

Scientists from the Max Plank Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden have explored the electronic structure of LaBi and have observed the existence of three Dirac cones: two that coexist at the corner and one at the center of its Brillouin zone. Thus, they have unambiguously proven the topological character of LaBi.

Verbindungen im MgAgAs-Strukturtyp (Halb-Heusler Phasen) stellen eine wichtige Substanzklasse in den modernen Materialwissenschaften dar. Die Kenntnis aller möglichen Elementkombinationen ist hierbei von elementarer Bedeutung.  Mittels einer wissensbasierten Erweiterung des reinen Hoch-Durchsatz Computerchemie-Verfahrens wurden auf der Basis eines speziell entwickelten chemischen Bindungsmodells bislang unentdeckte Phasen im MgAgAs-Typ vorhergesagt und nachfolgend experimentell verifiziert.
