Together with the Real Sociedad Española de Química, the Hermanos Elhuyar - Hans Goldschmidt Lecture was established in 1998. It took place for the first time a year later in Spain. Professor Hans-Heinrich Limbach from Berlin was invited.
The Elhuyar brothers were both passionate mineralogists and chemists. They both studied in Paris and went to the Freiberg Mining Academy. They continued their education through educational trips to Central and Northern Europe. In 1783 the brothers published their research on the extraction of tungsten from wolframite. That makes them the discoverers of tungsten.
The chemist Hans Goldschmidt was born in Berlin in 1861. He studied in Berlin and later with Robert Wilhelm Bunsen at the University of Heidelberg, where he also received his doctorate. In 1894 he developed the thermite process, which is still important today. This redox reaction enabled the simple production of carbon-free metals such as iron, chromium and manganese and is still of great importance in rail construction today.
In his research, Professor Bein deals with functional nanosystems. The physical chemist and his working group are interested in metal organic frameworks, semiconductors and Medicine applications.
Professor Luis M. Liz-Marzán conducts research in the field of synthesis and the mechanisms of formation of (plasmonic) metal nanoparticles with controlled composition, size and morphology. He also deals with functionalized carbon nanostructures, Janus particles and the application of metal nanoparticles in biosensors.
