Wöhler Association for inorganic chemistry

Who we are - what we do

inorganic chemistry is a fundamental basic discipline of chemistry, and its limits can hardly be determined in the course of the increasing interdisciplinarity of modern research. In addition to the fundamentally oriented teaching and research, which decisively shapes the understanding of chemistry, it plays a central role in the rapid developments in the natural sciences and encompasses a large number of highly topical and future-oriented research fields with an enormous breadth - from exciting molecular chemistry to the design of novel catalysts and materials for energy research up to supramolecular and bioinorganic chemistry on the border to the life sciences.

The general tasks of the Wöhler Association for Inorganic Chemistry are:


  • to further develop the understanding of inorganic chemistry and its perception in society,
  • Strengthening the networking of the chemical subjects through cooperation with other Divisions - it works in all tasks with the Liebig Association for Organic Chemistry and the Solid State Chemistry and Division of Solid-State Chemistry and Materials Research , especially in curricular issues with the German Bunsen Society for physical chemistry and on special issues also with the Working Group Fluorochemistry, the Society for biochemistry and Molecular Biology and relevant Divisions of the GDCh,
  • To stimulate research directions and research projects in the field of inorganic chemistry,
  • to promote the subject of inorganic chemistry at universities and the inter-university cooperation of responsible teaching staff,
  • to promote contacts and the exchange of experiences among members and foreign colleagues,
  • to inform about important publications concerning inorganic chemistry and other activities in this area,
  • to build a bridge between school, college and work.


The Board consists of the chairman, his deputy and at least one, but not more than four assessors.
The candidates are from the fields


  • University / research institutions and
  • Industry / liberal professions

elected. At least one elected member of the board of directors must come from the field of industry / liberal professions.
