Rudolf-Hoppe Lectureship

Rudolf-Hoppe Lectureship of the GDCh Division of Solid-State Chemistry & Materials Research

Prof. Dr. Rudolf Hoppe (1922-2014; obituary ) shaped solid-state chemistry like no other with his enormous scientific breadth and his striving for a deep understanding of inorganic structural chemistry based on electrostatic models. In honor of Rudolf Hoppe, the Division has been awarding this name lecture every two years since 2016 to personalities who have achieved outstanding scientific achievements in the field of solid-state chemistry and materials research. The award is linked to an award certificate, a prize money of 1000 euros donated by the Division and an invitation to give four lectures. The first of these lectures usually takes place immediately after the award ceremony on the occasion of the Division conference .

The Rudolf-Hoppe Lecture 2018 was awarded at the specialist group conference in Innsbruck. The prizewinner of the lecture, which aims to highlight the importance of inorganic solid-state chemistry as an important foundation for any material development, is Prof. Dr. Mathias Wickleder from the University of Cologne.

Mathias Wickleder is one of the most important and influential German-speaking solid-state chemists of the last decade. His work, especially on compounds with various types of oxo anions, also received great attention worldwide. But Mathias Wickleder is above all a preparative chemist who, through creative ideas, created access to compounds whose existence would have been considered impossible years ago. Anyone who has heard one of his lectures can confirm his special ability to convey these results to an interested scientific and non-scientific audience.
