Mission: The MPI for Chemical Energy Conversion sees it as its task to investigate fundamental chemical processes in energy transformation and thus to contribute to the development of new and efficient catalysts. Our approach to this problem is based on a profound understanding of the underlying chemical reactions. Only when we know in detail how the reaction mechanism looks – and above all how the catalyst is involved in it – we can develop improved and sustainable catalysts on a rational basis. For as Max Planck once said: "Insight must precede application." Multidisciplinary research will be essential to achieve this goal. At the MPI CEC the fields of heterogeneous catalysis, molecular catalysis and inorganic spectroscopy are being explored in combination using state-of-the art experimental and theoretical analysis methods. We are convinced that this combination is the key to understanding and ultimately to controlling fundamental chemical processes.

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.
We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
These are the journals used by the institution's researchers to publish their work in the last year. The size of each circle represents the value of the SJR of the publication, and its spatial position represents its subject matter.
This visualizatión allows you to identify the knowledge areas where the institution has published, recognize the prestige of the scientific journals in which the institution knowledge has been published, and identify predominant scientific communities.
