RUB » Center for Solvation Science

Home of Solvation Science @ RUB

In ZEMOS at Ruhr-Universität Bochum international working groups interdisciplinarily explore the new research field Solvation Science. We use the various laboratories and simulation clusters equipped with the most modern techniques, as well as the advantages of the open and communicative architecture of the building.

Cluster of Excellence RESOLV

The Cluster of Excellence RESOLV (Ruhr Explores Solvation: EXC 2033) is an interdisciplinary research project co-hosted by the Ruhr University Bochum and the TU Dortmund University. About 200 scientists cooperate to clarify how the solvent is involved in the control, mediation and regulation of chemical reactions. Solvation Science is essential to advance technologies that could reuse CO2 for chemicals production, increase the efficiency of energy conversion and storage and develop smart sensors. RESOLV is funded by the German Federal Government and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia under the umbrella of the German Excellence Strategy with 42 Mio. EUR over the period 2019-2025.
Further information about RESOLV can be found on the homepage and in the RESOLV Flyer.

ZEMOS: New Research Building

The Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) takes a step ahead towards paving the way for a novel research fields – the investigation of solvation processes in chemistry, biochemistry, and engineering. The German Science Council (German: Wissenschaftsrat (WR)) recommended the funding of a 44 M€ research building. With a total area of 3.891 square meters, the Center of Solvation Science (ZEMOS) will be created eastward of the ND building. It will give space to about 100 scientists dedicated to the research field Solvation Science.
