For the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the GDCh set up the Richard Willstätter Lecture, to which Israeli scientists from the HUJ to Germany and vice versa German scientists are invited to the HUJ. So far it is the only name lecture with an institution outside Europe. The GDCh took over the financing.
The German professor Richard Martin Willstätter was a pioneer in his field. He succeeded for the first time in a complete clarification of the constitution and synthesis of the natural substance cocaine. He also worked intensively on naturally occurring dyes such as chlorophyll, hemoglobin and anthocyanins. For this excellent work Willstätter received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1915. In 1924 and 1925 Willstätter was President of the German Chemical Society, the predecessor organization of today's GDCh.
Professor Dmitri Gelman is an organic chemist at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. Gelman studies the interaction between the structure and reactivity of organometallic compounds. He has set his focus in the area of the pincer complexes. He researches these as catalysts for hydrogen transfer reactions and for dehydrogenation reactions of formic acid and hydrogenation of CO 2.
Professor Klaus Meerholz conducts research in the field of printable electronics, such as organic light-emitting diodes or organic photovoltaic cells. Organic electronics have many advantages over inorganic electronics. It enables the production of flexible components, which greatly expands the range of applications. Meerholz is also involved in the development of organic batteries.
