Give chemistry a face. - Nominate.

The Wöhler Prize for Sustainable Chemistry has its roots in the Chemical Society of the GDR, which awarded a prize named after Friedrich Wöhler from 1960 to 1991. In 1998 the GDCh resumed this award. The Wöhler Prize for Resource-Conserving Processes was awarded until 2011 for innovative research contracts on greater environmental compatibility, responsible use of existing or development of new resources. In 2012 the prize was renamed Wöhler Prize for Sustainable Chemistry and is awarded for pioneering and outstanding contributions to the development and implementation of sustainable chemistry.

Prize winner 2019 - Dieter Vogt, Dortmund

The GDCh honored Professor Dieter Vogt with the Wöhler Prize for Sustainable Chemistry in recognition of his outstanding and pioneering research achievements in the field of sustainable chemistry, especially in recognition of his fundamental work on applied homogeneous catalysis of molecular foundations for processes for sustainable chemistry.
