The Alexander Todd - Hans Krebs chemical science lecture was launched in 2006 by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the German Chemical Society . The aim of this collaboration is to further strengthen international relations and academic exchange between Great Britain and Germany.
Both namesake were active in the field of Biochemistry . Professor Alexander Todd received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1957 for his fundamental work in the field of nucleotides and nucleotide coenzymes. His research made a decisive contribution to the structural elucidation of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA) and laid the foundation for research in the field of genetics.
In 1953, Professor Hans Krebs received the Nobel Prize for Medicine. He discovered both the urea cycle and the citric acid cycle. Both cycles are now part of the basic knowledge of every medical and biochemist, which underscores the importance of these discoveries.
Professor Köhler's research focuses on organic semiconductors, with a focus on organic solar cells, transistors and light-emitting diodes. Organic materials have several advantages over inorganic materials and their properties enable new areas of application, such as flexible components.
Professor Polly L. Arnold deals with the coordination chemistry of lanthanides and actinides. Her focus is on the synthesis of new catalysts for the activation of small molecules. Their research also helps make radioactive waste storage safer.
