Marie Sklodowska-Curie - Wilhelm Klemm Lecture

The Marie Sklodowska-Curie - Wilhelm Klemm lecture is awarded together with the Polskie Towarzystwo Chemiczne. The lecture took place for the first time in 1995 and since then Polish and German scientists have received awards.

The namesake of the lecture both had close ties to Poland. Marie Sklodowska Curie was a physicist and chemist with Polish roots. She received the Nobel Prize in various fields. In 1903 she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics and in 1911 the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Marie Curie is best known for her pioneering work in the field of radioactive compounds.

Wilhelm Klemm was born in Guhrau in what is now Poland in 1896. He studied and obtained his PhD in inorganic chemistry at the University of Wroclaw. He completed his habilitation in Hanover. He then researched and taught at the Technical University of Danzig until it was evacuated in 1944. At the same time as Rudolf Hoppe, Wilhelm Klemm succeeded in producing noble gas compounds for the first time.
