Prof. Omar M. Yaghi, Professor of Chemistry, University of California, Berkeley (USA) and 2021 Gerhard Ertl Lecture Awardee, will give a lecture with the title “Reticular Chemistry and Precision Reactions in Infinite 2D and 3D" on Friday, 10 December 2021, the anniversary of the Nobel Prize award to Gerhard Ertl. The event will be transmitted at 4pm via livestream.
With his discovery of indefinite two and three-dimensional metalorganic frameworks and covalent organic frameworks, Prof. Yaghi created the basis for the new field of reticular chemistry, which links molecular building blocks by strong bonds into crystalline extended structures. This new chemical space enabled him harnessing precision chemistry and important applications as he has shown for hydrogen storage, carbon oxide capture, and harvesting water from desert air.
The Ertl Lecture Award was established in 2008 by the three Berlin universities (Humboldt University, Technical University and Free University) and the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society to commemorate the awarding of the Nobel Prize to Gerhard Ertl in 2007. The prize, which is sponsored by BASF, includes a one-week research stay at the participating Berlin institutions and a festive evening lecture.

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
