Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern

Director
Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems

Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern received in 1982 a Diplom in Chemical Engineering from Technische Hochschule Leuna-Merseburg and in 1987 a Ph.D. from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences in Berlin (East). In 1991 and 1992 he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. He finalized in 1994 a Habilitation at the Technical University Berlin. After working for the pharmaceutical company Schering in Berlin he became in 1995 Professor for Chemical Process Engineering at the Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg. In 2002 he was appointed as a Director at the newly founded Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg, where he is head of the department “Physical and Chemical Foundations of Process Engineering”.

The research interests of Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern include heterogeneous catalysis, adsorption and preparative chromatography, crystallization and the development of new reactor concepts. The results of his work are published in more than 500 research papers. He holds more than 20 patents in the fields of crystallization and multi-column chromatography.

Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern received in 1999 the “Max Buchner Award” (DECHEMA/Germany), in 2002 the Otto von Guericke Research Award of Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, in 2015, together with Peter Seeberger, the “Humanity in Science Award” (The Analytical Scientist, UK, Phenomenex, USA), 2016 the “Emil Kirschbaum Medal” (PROCESSNET, Platform of Chemical Engineering in Germany) and in 2021 the ACS Award for Affordable Green Chemistry (together with Kerry Gilmore and Peter Seeberger. He holds Honorary Doctorates of the University of Southern Denmark (Odense, Denmark) and the Lappeenranta University of Technology (Finland) and is member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW) and the German National Academy of Science and Engineering (Acatech).
