Adolf Lieben Lectureship 2016




The newly formed workgroup for Organic Chemistry by the Austrian Chemical Society (GÖCH) cordially invites all of you to the first Adolf Lieben Lectureship which will be held in Nov. 2016.

Named after one of the true Austrian pioneers in the field of organic chemistry, this newly established annual lecture series will bring some of the most innovative organic chemists to Austria to deliver seminars at the Universities of Graz, Innsbruck, Linz, and Vienna.



Adolf Lieben Lecturer 2016:

Our first lecturer will be Prof. Alois Fürstner from the Max Planck Institute für Kohlenforschung (Mülheim/Ruhr, Germany).


Born in Bruck/Mur (A), Prof. Fürstner studied chemistry at the TU Graz. After postdoctoral research in the group of the late Prof. Oppolzer (Geneva, CH) he obtained his habilitation from the TU Graz in 1992 and then moved to the Max Planck Institute für Kohlenforschung, where he soon became Director.

Prof. Fürstner is most famous for his seminal contributions in the fields of organometallic chemistry and natural product synthesis, and we look forward to a series of fascinating and entertaining lectures soon.
