As an expert in the field of surface research, one of Hans-Peter Steinrück’s main interests is ionic fluids. Thanks to their physical and chemical properties, they can be changed in a huge variety of ways, allowing them to be adapted especially for catalysis in specific chemical and industrial-scale processes, for example. Hans-Peter Steinrück examines their surfaces and interfaces in order to apply anti-corrosion coatings to valuable materials, for example.
