Life and workEdit

Hantzsch studied chemistry in Dresden and graduated at the University of Würzburg under Johannes Wislicenus. As a professor, he taught at the Universities of Zürich, Würzburg und Leipzig.

The Hantzsch pyridine synthesis,[1] a multi-component organic reaction, is named after him, as is the Hantzsch pyrrole synthesis.

His surname is correctly pronounced /Haːntʃ/ (rhymes with cattle ranch).
