ADUC prize

ADUC prize

As part of the chemistry lecturers' Chemiedozententagung , the ADUC honors up to three young scientists (during habilitation, scholarship or junior professorship) for establishing an independent research area with the ADUC prize. The award comes with a certificate and prize money of 5,000 euros each. Both nominations and applications are possible; this should take place up to a maximum of six years after the end of the doctorate and before taking up a permanent/open-ended professorship. The establishment of the independent research area is to be demonstrated by means of representative publications in scientific journals.

The price is currently not advertised.

The ADUC Chemiedozententagung 2022 were presented by Prof. Dr. Norbert W. Mitzel (Chairman of the ADUC) to Jun.-Prof. dr Kai S. Exner, Jun.-Prof. dr Max M. Hansmann and Dr. Christopher J. Teskey (Photos: Jean M. Laffitau).

Jun.-Prof. dr Kai S. Exner for original and groundbreaking research in the field of theoretical electrocatalysis to improve electrode materials for electrocatalytic processes or batteries.

Jun.-Prof. dr Max M. Hansmann for the development of synthetic approaches to unusual and highly reactive carbon compounds such as mesoionic N-heterocyclic olefins, diazoalkenes, triplet vinylidenes and electron-rich olefins and their comprehensive physical characterization.

dr Christopher J. Teskey for the development of light-switchable transition-metal catalysts using the example of cobalt-mediated hydroborations that enable stereoselective aldol reaction cascades and display switchable chemoselectivity.

The ADUC prizes 2021 were awarded to Dr. Robert Göstl, Ass.-Prof. dr Vera Krewald and Dr. Christian Sindlinger awarded.

dr Robert Göstl for the development of molecular force sensors that open up new possibilities to characterize and manipulate the mechanical behavior of polymeric materials and materials.

Ass.-Prof. dr Vera Krewald for quantum chemical calculations to elucidate the reaction mechanisms and for a better understanding of the catalytically relevant active centers in the activation of small molecules such as nitrogen or oxygen in the context of chemical energy conversion.

dr Christian Sindlinger for the development of efficient syntheses of free boroles and the use of their dianions, the borole diides, as cyclopentadienide-analogous ligands to stabilize unprecedented sandwich complexes and cluster-like half-sandwich complexes of electropositive p-block elements.

Dr. Urs Gellrich
Dr. Jannika Lauth
Dr. habil. Crispin Lichtenberg

The ADUC prizes 2020 were given to Dr. Urs Gellrich, Dr. Jannika Lauth and Dr. habil. Crispin Lichtenberg awarded.

Dr. Urs Gellrich, for developing the novel concept of inter- and intramolecular boron-ligand cooperation for bond activation and catalysis, including the first organocatalytic dehydrogenation of amine-borane.

Dr. Jannika Lauth, for the representation of novel ultra-thin 2D semiconductor materials and their characterization using ultra- short-term spectroscopic methods. The materials have innovative optoelectronic properties such as photo-excitable, highly mobile charge carriers or bound excitons with strong emissions.

Dr. habil. Crispin Lichtenberg, for his preparative work in the fields of low-valent, cationic and radical bismuth chemistry, the isolation and characterization of new classes of substances, the design and optimization of chemical properties using tailor-made ligands and the application of these compounds in the areas of CH activation, controlled radical reactions and activation of small, strongly bound molecules.
