Bohlmann Lecture 2008

Richard R. Schrock, professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, and 2005 Nobel laureate in chemistry, will give the Bohlmann lecture at the Department of Chemistry of the Technical University of Berlin on October 24, 2008. The lecture is sponsored by the Ernst Schering Foundation.

Richard R. Schrock (born 1945) is researching in the fields of organometal chemistry, synthetic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, catalysts and polymers. His particular interest is in catalysts used for olefin metathesis and ring-opening metathesis polymerisation. Professor Schrock was the first to produce an efficient metal compound catalyst for metathesis – a chemical method which nowadays is used by industry in a cost-efficient and environmentally friendly way. In 2005, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry together with Professor Yves Chauvin and Professor Robert Howard Grubbs.

As part of the Bohlmann Lecture on October 24, 2008, Schrock will talk about “Monoalkoxide Monopyrrolide Olefin Metathesis Catalysts of Molybdenum: High Turnover, Variability, and Asymmetry at the Metal.” Following the lecture, the Society of Friends of the Technical University of Berlin will present the Schering Prize 2007, which is awarded for outstanding dissertations in chemistry and which is also sponsored by the Ernst Schering Foundation.
