Professor Rudolf Holze

Physical Chemistry

Chemnitz University of Technology

Professor Rudolf Holze received his PhD in 1983 from the University of Bonn, Germany. After­wards, he joined Professor E.B. Yeager at the Case Center for Electrochemical Sciences, Case Western Reserve University, USA, as a post-doctoral fellow, before taking up a position as Associate Professor in Physical Chemistry at Oldenburg University, Germany, in 1987.

He has been Full Professor of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in  the chemistry department of Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany, since 1993. His research is focused on spectroelectrochemistry, self-assembled monolayers, lithium ion batteries, electrochemical energy conversion and storage, electrochemical materials science, and corrosion. He is an ordinary member of the Saxonian Academy of Sci­ences and of several editorial boards. He is the author of more than 370 articles in refereed inter­national journals and eleven books.

Rudolf is particularly interested in electrochemistry and spectroelectrochemistry, self-assembled monolayers, structure and dynamics of electrified interfaces, electrochemically formed and modified intrinsically conducting polymers, electrochemical systems for energy conversion and storage, the corrosion of metallic materials in dentistry, the development of a sensor for measuring water hardness, and electrocatalysis of dioxygen reduction at porphyrin modified graphite electrodes.
