Jakob Jörissen

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jakob Jörissen (* 1948 ) is a German chemist ( electrochemistry , technical chemistry ) and university lecturer at the TU Dortmund .

Jörissen studied chemistry at the TU Dortmund and received his doctorate there in 1982 ( model equations for chlor-alkali electrolysis using the membrane method for calculating a cascade electrolysis ). In 1995 he completed his habilitation in technical chemistry. In 2006 he became an adjunct professor in the Faculty of Biological and Chemical Engineering at TU Dortmund University.

He deals with electrochemical technical processes with ion exchange membranes. In particular, he deals with the electrolysis of sodium chloride and hydrochloric acid, in particular with the use of gas diffusion electrodes to save energy, electro-organic syntheses, detoxification of drinking water and the recycling of salts.

In 2011, together with Arno Behr (TU Dortmund) and David Agar (TU Dortmund), he received the Literature Prize of the Fonds der Chemischen Industrie for their textbook on technical chemistry.
