Detlef Schröder (1963–2012)
Detlef Schröder of the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry (IOCB) at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic died unexpectedly on August 22, 2012, at the age of 49. Schröder was a worldwide recognized scientist in the field of mass spectrometry with a broad experience in all areas of gas-phase ion chemistry. His research interests ranged from the investigation of fundamental aspects of diatomic molecules to the elucidation of organic and inorganic reaction mechanisms or the study of problems of astrochemical and biochemical interest. His premature death is a great loss for the scientific community. Schröder served as Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Mass Spectrometry and Editorial Board member of ChemPlusChem.
