Nobel prize winner Professor Jean-Marie Lehn has been awarded the Netherlands Award for Supramolecular Chemistry and is therefore giving the lecture "Perspectives in Chemistry: Towards Complex Matter" at the University of Groningen.

In 1987 Jean-Marie Lehn received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry together with Donald Cram and Charles J. Pedersen for their development and use of molecules with structure-specific interactions of high selectivity. Over the years, his studies on the chemical basis of “molecular recognition”, which also play a fundamental role in biological processes, led him to define a new field in chemistry which he named: Supramolecular Chemistry. It deals with the design and synthesis of complex chemical entities held together by intermolecular forces. In later years, Jean-Marie Lehn’s research interests expanded towards adaptive chemistry and complex systems. Jean-Marie Lehn is author of more than 900 scientific publications and has received numerous international honors and awards.
