The award ceremony took place during the 50th Annual Meeting of German Catalysis Scientists in Weimar and Prof. Xinhe Bao gave a plenary talk entitled "New Horizons of C1 Chemistry" after the awarding ceremony.

The Alwin Mittasch Prize is awarded for distinguished work that has not only extended the fundamentals of catalysis, but also found exemplary application in industry. The Prize is conferred by the German Catalysis Society (GeCatS) and DECHEMA e.V. (Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology).
