Felix Tuczek

Lecture title: Thermal and optical spin-state switching of surface-adsorbed iron complexes.

Felix Tuczek studied Chemistry at Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, where he received Diploma in 1984 and PhD degree in 1989 under the supervision of Professor Philipp  Gütlich.
Postdoctoral training (1989-1991) he spent at Department of Chemistry, Stanford University in the group of E.I. Solomon.

From 1991 to 1996 he worked at the position of Hochschulassistent (C1) at Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz and in 1997 he habilitated. Felix Tuczek was promoted to Privatdozent Hochschuldozent (C2) at Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz (1997-1999). Since 1999 he is a chair of Molecular Inorganic Chemistry (C4/W3), Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, CAU Kiel. Professor Tuczek is a head/member of numerous advisory and editorial boards.

Professor Tuczek has published more than 140 scientific papers. His publications earned about 3398 citations (h-index= 31). Scientific interest includes following fields: chemistry of surfaces and thin films, biochemical reactions and processes (activation of oxygen-mediating pathway using copper ions, synthetic nitrogen fixation, etc.), and spectroscopy (Mössbauer and Infrared Reflection-Absorption spectroscopy).
