Kiel Nano, Surface and Interface Science (KiNSIS)


“Theoretical chemistry today can, by means of calculation, predict properties and reactions of random molecules. On the one hand we use this to explain chemical processes, which we observed in experiments, on an atomic scale. On the other hand, we can create new molecules on the computer for any desired purpose. One of our goals is to automatically create and improve nano machines, which drive selected molecular processes. There are innumerable of such nano machines in our bodies. They developed evolutionary in millions of years. We are working on the technology to specifically design such nano machines.”

Bernd Hartke. Born in Conception, Chile. Since 2002 Professor for Theoretical Chemistry at Kiel University. Prior to that lecturer at the Institute for Theoretical Chemistry at Stuttgart University. 1998 habilitation at Stuttgart University, 1990 PhD at Würzburg University.
