The Adolf von Baeyer Medal is awarded to scientists for outstanding work in the field of organic chemistry. The prize was donated by Carl Duisberg in 1910 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the lecturer and the 75th birthday of his teacher Adolf von Baeyer. The GDCh has been awarding this award since 1949. It was initially financed by Baeyer AG and later from a special fund of the GDCh. The namesake Adolf von Baeyer is one of the most important chemists of his time and was honored with the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1905 for the synthesis of indigo and triphenylmethane dyes.

Prize winner 2019 - Frank Würthner, Würzburg

Professor Frank Würthner received the Adolf von Baeyer medal for his fundamental work on supramolecular chemistry, in particular on dyes, which contributed to the elucidation of aggregation mechanisms and the resulting superstructure formation as well as pioneering applications in molecular materials and (opto) electronic components.
