Freiburg chemist Prof. Dr. Ingo Krossing has been elected a Fellow of Chemistry Europe, an association of 16 chemical societies from 15 European countries. The Fellows programme, which has been awarded every two years since 2015, honours outstanding members of Chemistry Europe's societies. It recognises individuals whose work enriches the field of chemistry and strengthens the collective efforts of Chemistry Europe. Krossing is one of two German scientists in the 2022/2023 class. A total of 22 international chemists have been selected.

"Promoting science at the highest level"

"It is a great honour for me to be appointed to the illustrious small circle of Chemistry Europe Fellows and as one of only two people from Germany. The award encourages me to continue advancing science at the highest level and to contribute to its implementation," says Ingo Krossing.

As Professor of Molecular and Coordination Chemistry and member of the Freiburg Cluster of Excellence Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems (livMatS), Krossing conducts research on ionic systems ranging from reactive cations to ionic liquids, from electrochemical energy storage to the development of unified acidity and redox scales.

Ingo Krossing has held the Chair of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Freiburg since 2006. He is a member of FIT, the Freiburg Center for Interactive Materials and Bioinspired Technologies, and the Freiburg Materials Research Center. He is also a member of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. Krossing has been awarded twice an ERC Advanced Grant.
