Helmut Schwarz, Professor for Organic Chemistry, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, received a Honorary Degree (Dr. sc. h.c.) from the ETH Zürich, Switzerland.
Helmut Schwarz, one of the leading international researchers in the field of molecular chemistry, was awarded for the use of mass spectrometry as a chemical laboratory, his contributions towards catalysis and for being the originator of organometallic chemistry in the gas phase.
Helmut Schwarz, born in 1943 in Nickenich, has been a professor in Chemistry at the Technische Universität Berlin since 1978. His research interests concern experimental and computational aspects of gas-phase chemistry and physics in their broadest sense and cover chemical systems as diverse as small organic molecules and actinoid polycations.
He is the author of more than 800 publications and has given about 800 invited lectures.
