Günther Rupprechter

Vienna University of Technology, Austria


Günther Rupprechter holds the Chair of Surface and Interface Chemistry at Vienna University of Technology (Institute of Materials Chemistry) since 2005, and he is the Head of the Austrian Catalysis Society. After receiving his Ph.D. degree in 1996 (University Innsbruck, Austria) he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California at Berkeley until 1998. From 1999 to 2005, he was Group Leader for Laser Spectroscopy and Catalysis at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin (Germany). Rupprechter has published over 100 papers on Surface Science, surface chemistry and catalysis, focusing on nanoparticle characterization, in situ vibrational spectroscopy, and structure–activity correlations in heterogeneous catalysis. In 2005, he received the Jochen Block Award of the German Catalysis Society for “the application of surface science methods to heterogeneous catalysis.”
