New series of lectures for Prof. Müllen
Two more Lectureship Awards for Prof. Klaus Müllen in 2015
Another two prestigious lectures can now be added to the already impressive curriculum of Prof. Klaus Müllen, director at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz.
Prof. Müllen was invited to the McGill University in Montreal, Canada, on February 5 and 6. Over these two days, he presented two talks about intelligent applications of carbon nanostructures: one in front of an audience of scientists from cross disciplines and one in front of chemistry connoisseurs. A month later, he gave the Thomas Graham Lecture about “Carbon Nanostructures as Functional Multitalents” at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.
Prof. Müllen took great pride that some 5,000 km apart his research on carbon nanostructures equally fascinates the scientific community.
The J. T. Donald Lecture is the most prestigious lecture held in the Chemistry Department of McGill and lecturers are handpicked: only world-class scientists are invited. This lecture commemorates James Thomas Donald, an entrepreneur and benefactor of the University who made significant contributions to the Chemical Industry in Canada.
The Thomas Graham Lecture was named after Prof. Thomas Graham, a Scottish chemist - known as ‘the father of colloid chemistry’- who established his reputation with the foundations of the law of diffusion of gases in 1833.
