Competencies / intended learning achievements

The students
  • should be able to plan and carry out the synthesis of homogeneous catalysts under guidance.
  • know the handling of microorganisms.
  • know the structure of bioreactors.
  • develop solution strategies for the practical implementation of fermentations and biotransformations.
  • can present their results in a lecture.


This will be announced at the beginning of the event.

Requirements for attendance (informal)


Requirements for attendance (formal)

According to the German Ordinance on Hazardous Substances, the prerequisite for carrying out practical work is proven participation in a safety training course not longer than one year ago. Such safety instructions are offered by the Department of Chemistry at regular intervals; time and place will be announced in good time on a notice board and on the Internet.
