Wöhler Association for Inorganic Chemistry

Who we are - What we do

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

The general tasks of the Wöhler Association for Inorganic Chemistry consist of


  • to further develop the understanding of inorganic chemistry and its perception in society,
  • to strengthen the networking of the chemical subjects through cooperation with other Divisions - she works together with the Liebig Association for Organic Chemistry and the Division of Solid-State Chemistry and Materials Research in all tasks, especially in curricular questions with the German Bunsen Society for physical chemistry and in special questions 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 field,
  • to build a bridge between school, university and work.
