The Liebig Association for Organic Chemistry of the German Chemical Society awards the ORCHEM Prize every two years to ORCHEM Award for Young Scientists who have qualified through new, original and pioneering scientific work in the field of organic chemistry. The prize is endowed with EUR 5000 and is financially supported by BASF. The ORCHEM Prize is traditionally awarded at the ORCHEM Conference . The awardee present the results of their excellent work in a lecture.
