Tribute to Hans-Joachim Berthold: 1970 to 1991 Professor at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry

Faculty of Natural Sciences sadly announces the passing of Professor Hans-Joachim Berthold.

Mr Berthold worked as a university professor at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry until his retirement in 1991. He received his doctorate in 1952 from the University of Cologne on sulphides of sodium and potassium. Research stays in Chicago and Mainz followed, where he habilitated in 1960 and was appointed associate professor in 1966. In Hanover, Professor Berthold continued his research on topics of X-ray structure analysis, phase transformations and solid-state chemistry from 1970. He held the position of dean in 1977 and 1978.

With his passing, we lost a highly esteemed, dedicated researcher and academic teacher. We will honour his memory and always remember his work with gratitude. Our condolences are with his family.
