Costin Nenitzescu - Rudolf Criegee Lecture

Costin Nenitzescu - Rudolf Criegee Lecture

The Costin Nenitzescu - Rudolf Criegee Lecture was established in cooperation with the Romanian Academy of Sciences in 2002. It took place in Germany for the first time in 2005. Since then, German and Romanian chemists have been honored regularly, thus promoting international cooperation between the countries.

Both namesakes of the lecture were organic chemists. The Nenitzescu indole synthesis was named after Professor Costin Nenitzescu, which makes it possible to create substituted 5-hydroxyindoles by means of a ring-closure reaction from a substituted benzoquinone and an unsaturated carbonyl compound. In addition, Nenitzescu received the August Wilhelm von Hofmann Medal in 1970 and was a member of the Leopoldina.

The greatest achievement of Professor Rudolf Criegee was the elucidation of the mechanism of ozonolysis. Also, the Criegee rearrangement was named after him. This rearrangement makes it possible to produce ketones, esters and carbonates from tertiary alcohols using a peracid. Criegee also received the Emil Fischer Medal from the German Chemical Society.

Excellent people so far
