On Genius in the Fields of Science and Art

Dr Heiner Eckert Lecture given at the Ugi Conference on »Multi-Component Reactions« at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) on 22nd September 1995 on the occasion of the 65th birthday of Professor Dr Ivar Ugi (5th September 1930 – 29th September 2005). The lecture uses selected figures from the fields of science and art to demonstrate the factors that characterise »geniuses« in general. It then develops …

My Experiences from my Work in China

Heiner-Eckert- Peking

When I arrived at the airport in Shanghai Pudong at the end of November 2013, where I was welcomed with a bunch of flowers, I was very intrigued as to what exactly was awaiting me. I had already supervised many students from China at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), some of whom worked with me to complete their theses, including Dr Zheming Wang, the …

Basics: Multi-Function Component Reactions (MFCRs) By extending Multi-Component Reactions (MCRs) through additional orthogonal functional groups in the components the reaction space expands by one or more dimensions [53,58]. Orthogonal one-pot reactions of the kind described above containing 4 components and 5 functional groups in which two orthogonal functions (strongly nucleophilic –NC and strongly electrophilic –NCO) of the same component select their reaction partners from the reaction mixture …
