TOCUS Thieme Lecture

The Thieme Lecture in Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry is held every October on the occasion of the “Day of Organic Chemistry at the University of Stuttgart (TOCUS)” and is sponsored by Thieme Chemistry. The lecture is held by internationally well-known chemists who present results of their current research to an audience of undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students and their group leaders from several regional universities.

This year, the TOCUS Thieme Lecture "Very Strong and Confined Chiral Acids: Universal Catalysts for Asymmetric Synthesis?" will be held on October 11, 2019. SYNLETT Editor-in-Chief Benjamin List (Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung, Mülheim, Germany) will present his latest research results in the field (Lecture Announcement).
