    The 63rd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting entirely focused on chemistry.  34 Nobel Laureates in this discipline accepted the invitation to Lindau for having discussions about current research trends, e.g. Green Chemistry, with more than 600 outstanding young researchers from 78 countries.

    With regard to this the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the University of Würzburg was represented extremely well. Besides junior research group leader Gustavo Fernández, the two postgraduates Nadja Bertleff (Seibel group) and David Bialas (Würthner group) are two other successful candidates.

    Further participants from Würzburg were the postgraduates Federico Koch (Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry), Thessa Lühmann (Institute of Pharmacy and Food Chemistry) and Katharina Fucke (Institute of Inorganic Chemistry).

    The journal Scientific American portrays 30 attendees, among them Nadja Bertleff and David Bialas. The latter was also interviewed by a German TV station (report in German).
