In honor of Theodor Förster (1910-1974), the GDCh Division of Photochemistry and the German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry award the Theodor-Förster Memorial Lectureship , usually every two years, to personalities who have made outstanding scientific achievements and made special contributions to the field field of photochemistry. The name lecture comes with a certificate of award and an invitation to give four lectures. The first of these lectures will be held after the award ceremony at the "Lecture Conference on Photochemistry" that takes place in even years. A selection committee appointed for this purpose, which represents the Division of Photochemistry and the German Bunsen Society, decides on the award of the award.
The price is currently not advertised.
The Theodor Förster Memorial Lecture of the GDCh Division of Photochemistry and the German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry was given to Prof. Dr. Thorsten Bach awarded.
"In recognition of his outstanding achievements in the development and application of organic photochemistry and asymmetric photocatalysis. As a long-time professor of organic chemistry at the Technical University of Munich, he managed to combine two major research directions, photochemistry and asymmetric catalysis, in his contributions.
Professor Bach is one of the most important contemporary organic photochemists, who has revolutionized the fields of enantioselective photochemistry, [2+2] photocycloadditions and asymmetric photochemistry with chiral catalysts in his sometimes groundbreaking work.
Using these new methods and catalyses, he was able to produce numerous natural and active substances in a targeted manner and with high yields. We honor Professor Bach with the Theodor-Förster Memorial Lectureship for his extraordinary contributions to the combination of photochemistry and organic chemistry".
