The Horst Pracejus Prize is awarded to scientists for outstanding work in the field of enantioselectivity or chirality. The GDCh created the award in 1997. The namesake Pracejus was known for his research in the field of chiral catalysis and Head of the Catalysis Research Institute in Rostock. This was a branch of the Central Institute for Organic Chemistry of the GDR Academy of Sciences.
The GDCh honors Professor Oliver Trapp with the Horst Pracejus Prize for his fundamental achievements in autocatalysis, self-amplification and the determination of the absolute configuration. Like no other, he has answered key questions of chirality through profound, creatively designed experiments.
