Vol. 63 No. 9 (2009): Aspects of Chemistry at UZH from Werner to the Present Day
The cover graphics unites all 34 recipients of the Karrer medal. Founded on the occasion of Paul Karrer‘s 80th Birthday, the Paul Karrer Medal in Gold celebrates its 50th anniversary having recognized the outstanding science of 34 molecular scientists. Between the first lecture and today there have been more than forty years of exciting and pioneering development in the field of organic chemistry and the thereby influenced related fields, such as molecular biology and structural biochemistry. Evidence of these developments is documented by the lectures of the recipients of the Paul Karrer Medal who were chosen over the course of these 40 years. Among the recipients are nine Nobel Prize winners for chemistry and for medicine and they have represented nearly all important research institutions of Europe and the USA.
