About the prize
The Hermann Staudinger Prize, one of the highest honors in the field of Macromolecular Chemistry in Germany, was donated to the GDCh in 1970 by BASF AG in memory of the father of modern polymer chemistry and Nobel Laureate in Chemistry (1953). It is awarded at most every two years, by the Board of the GDCh to scientists who have earned special merit in the field.
