Marie Sklodowska-Curie - Wilhelm Klemm Lecture

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 been honored.

The namesakes 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. She was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 1903 and the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1911. Marie Curie is primarily known for her groundbreaking work in the field of radioactive compounds.

Wilhelm Klemm was born in 1896 in Guhrau in what is now Poland. He studied and received his doctorate in inorganic chemistry at the University of Breslau. He completed his habilitation in Hanover. He then researched and taught at the Technical University of Gdańsk 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.

The allocation of the name lecture was discontinued in December 2023.
