11th Central European Meeting

on Molecular Electrochemistry

CEMME 2019




In the frame of the previous long term cooperation between electrochemists from J. Heyrovský Institute (Prague Czech Republic) and IFW Dresden (Saxony, Germany), a series of meetings focused on the presentation of young electrochemists from Prague and Dresden was established in the early nineties. Initially, unformal meetings became regular small electrochemical symposia, which were called "Prague-Dresden Symposia" with a rotating chairmanship between the two Institutions. The founders, promoters and organizers were on the Czech side Dr. Pavel Janda and Prof. Ladislav Kavan and on the German side Prof. Dr. Lothar Dunsch and Prof. Waldfried Plieth, TU Dresden. Until 2011 at least ten very successful conventions were hold alternately in the Czech Republic and in Germany.

1st: 1995 Prachovskéskály
2nd: 1996 Krippen
3rd: 1998 Prague
4th: 1999 Holzhau
5th: 2001 Jetřichovice
6th: 2003 Cunewalde
7th: 2005 Roztoky u Křivoklátu
8th: 2007 Freital
9th: 2009 ČervenýHrádek
10th: 2011 Oybin.

Unfortunately, the illness of Prof. Dunsch (Nov. 2013) interrupted this series of conferences. In 2018 a common decision was made to restart the traditional and successful symposia which will be focused on Molecular Electrochemistry.

The main goals of the symposia are: a) To bring together young electrochemists and students from the Central European region, b) to enable them to present their research work on an international level, c) to promote discussion among young and experienced scientists, d) to catalyze cooperation and common projects among research groups.

Thematically the symposia will be oriented to Molecular Electrochemistry, that means to investigate the relationship between structure and redox reactivity on the atomic/molecular level. An inter- and transdisciplinary approach to the study of static and dynamic molecular properties of organic, inorganic, organometallic, metal-organicand bioinorganic complexes, supramolecular systems and metallo-enzymes will be included.

The restored series of meetings will continue with the 11th issue under the name Central European Meeting on Molecular Electrochemistry (CEMME), as the Lothar Dunsch Memorial. The length of this international meeting for approx. 50 – 60 scientists and students will not exceed two/three days and will take place on the 17th to 19th of November 2019 in Saxony at TU Chemnitz. The organizers are Prof. Dr. Heinrich Lang together with Dr. Alexander Hildebrandt from the Inorganic Chemistry Department at TU Chemnitz and Prof. Dr. Jiri Ludvik and Dr. Pavel Jandafrom the J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry, Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague.

It is planned that during the 11th CEMME molecular electro-activation, electro-synthesis and electro-catalysis, bioelectrochemistry and spectroelectrochemistry will be highlighted and discussed. Hence, the Conference will significantly contribute to a better understanding of molecular properties, to study in detail chemical reactions comprising electron-transfer processes and, for example, the formation of reaction mechanisms.
