Earlier this year, the Department of Chemistry of the University of Zurich received a generous donation from Dr. med. Karin Dreiding (Prof. Dreiding´s daughter) encompassing not only Prof. Dreiding’s original molecular models but also more than twenty different model kits that he avidly collected over the years. To celebrate and honour this legacy, the Department of Chemistry has put together an exhibition showcasing the importance and impact that  molecular models have had (and still have) in modern chemistry as well as Prof. Dreiding´s key contributions in this area. The exhibit will also feature molecules that have played a pivotal role in shaping the history of Chemistry at the University of Zurich as well as compounds that are the current focus of investigations at our Department.
