André Dreiding: A Fascinating Journey Encapsulated by Molecular Models

Earlier this year, our Department received a generous donation from Dr. med. Karin Dreiding (André´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 honor this legacy, the department has put together an exhibition showcasing the importance and impact that  molecular models have had (and still have) in modern chemistry as well as André´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 University of Zurich as well as compounds that are in the current focus of investigations at our Department.

Find here some fotos (by Roland Kunz) of the exhibition. The exhibition can be visited at the Department of Chemistry on Campus Irchel in the main entrance hall of building 34, floor H.
