Kiel Nano, Surface and Interface Science (KiNSIS)

Portrait

»As a teenager I was enthusiastic over building small vehicles and machines with construction sets. How could I have guessed that someday I would be able to combine this hobby with my passion for chemistry? Today, chemistry has progressed so far, that we can realize macroscopic functions like transporting, pumping, constructing, information processing et cetera on a nanoscopic scale with molecular machines. Miniaturisation spawns novel applications, which we are working on: photoswitchable drugs, machine-like molecules, which read information about biochemical processes in the body and make them accessible (for instance, over magnetic resonance imaging) and many more.«

Rainer Herges. Since 2001 professor for Organic Chemistry at Kiel University. Prior to that professor in Braunschweig, Canberra (visiting professor), Melbourne (visiting professor), Stanford (visiting professor), Paris, Ecole Normale Superieure (visiting professor), Erlangen (habilitation), Munich (PhD), Saarbrucken (studies in chemistry).
