Dr Katharina Brinkert Group


The Brinkert Group is broadly interested in artificial photosynthesis systems for the production of oxygen and valuable chemicals such as fuels, but also new molecules which are of relevance e.g., to the pharmaceutical industry. We employ semiconductor-electrocatalyst systems for the solar-to-chemical energy conversion process which we develop and analyze pre- and post-catalysis using surface sensitive techniques and methods such as XPS, XRD, AFM, HRSEM and HRTEM to identify compositional and topographical changes after (photo-)electrocatalysis.

We are also on Twitter! Follow us @BrinkertGroup!


Katharina is an invited keynote speaker at the Electrochem 2023 in Bristol. We are looking forward to discussions!!


We always look for new team members! Please get in contact for master's projects, PhD position openings and postdoctoral opportunities! We are also happy to support you with your own scholarship application.


We had a great time at the 243rd ECS Meeting in Boston. Thank you for a fantastic meeting!!
