The Georgia Tech-COPE Distinguished Lecture Series welcomes Professor Klaus Müllen who is a director at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research. The lecture will take place at the Molecular Science and Engineering Building, Room G011 on Friday, April 1 at 4pm. Refreshments will be served following the lecture.

About Klaus Müllen
Dr. Müllen obtained a Diplom-Chemiker degree at the University of Cologne in 1969 after work with Professor E. Vogel. His Ph.D. degree was granted by the University of Basel, Switzerland, in 1972 where he undertook research with Professor F. Gerson on twisted pi-systems and EPR spectroscopic properties of the corresponding radical anions. In 1972 he joined the group of Professor J.F.M. Oth at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich where he worked in the field of dynamic NMR spectroscopy and electrochemistry. He received his habilitation from the ETH Zürich in 1977 and was appointed Privatdozent. In 1979 he became a Professor in the Department of Organic Chemistry, University of Cologne, and accepted an offer of a chair in Organic Chemistry at the University of Mainz in 1983. He received a call to the University of Göttingen in 1988. Since 1989 he is a director and scientific member at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research. His research interests are in the field of preparative macro-and supramolecular chemistry. His group succeeded so including the synthesis and characterization of previously inaccessible large polycyclic aromatics.
