Chemistry 2019

University of Oslo and The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters


Professor Odd Hassel together with Professor D. H. R. Barton, UK, were in 1969 awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. On that occasion the Department of Chemistry, University of Oslo, will arrange an international conference in honor of Odd Hassel. The conference will highlight the importance of Hassel´s establishment of the structure of cyclohexane and the field of conformation analysis and its importance for the modern aspect of chemistry, biology, medicine, material sciences and catalysis.

Program and registration

The Department of Chemistry is jointly with the Research Council of Norway, the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters and the Norwegian Chemical Society arranging this international research conference. 

Professor Trygve Helgaker, Professor Ute Krengel, Professor Einar Uggerud, Associate Professor Mohamed Amedjkouh and Dr. Kari Kveseth are responsible for this arrangement.

We are looking forward to meet you in some challenging days with presentations and discussions of the outmost news in this exciting scientific field. This conference will replace the yearly Hassel-lectures in 2019.
