Brochures and scientific publications

Popular science publications (brochures)

Here you will find our brochures, which are aimed at the interested public. In various publications, the GDCh presents current chemistry topics in easily understandable brochures, occasionally together with other scientific societies. In the printed version, the brochures are often sold out soon after publication. At pr@gdch.de you can inquire whether copies of the respective issues are still available. Further down on this page you will find our scientific publications.
