Dieter Vogt, Technical University Dortmund, Germany, has received the Wöhler Prize for Sustainable Chemistry from the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh, German Chemical Society). The award honors outstanding contributions to the development of sustainable chemistry and was presented at the GDCh Wissenschaftsforum 2019 in Aachen, Germany, on September 18, 2019.
Dieter Vogt receives the prize for his work on homogeneous catalysis, which contributes to the development of sustainable methods in chemistry. His research interests include homogeneous transition-metal catalysis, ligand and catalyst design, mechanistic studies, renewable chemical feedstocks, and process development.
Dieter Vogt studied chemistry at the University of Essen, Germany, and at RWTH Aachen University. He received his Ph.D. in 1992 from RWTH and completed his habilitation at the RWTH’s Institute of Technical Chemistry in 1998. From 1999 to 2012, Vogt served as Professor of Inorganic Chemistry and Coordination Chemistry at the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands. He then joined the University of Edinburgh, UK, as Professor of Industrial Chemistry. Since 2017, Vogt has held the Chair of Technical Chemistry at the Technical University of Dortmund.
