"Wolfgang Oppolzer"

Wolfgang Oppolzer was born in Vienna, Austria, on August 4, 1937 and died in Geneva, Switzerland, on March 15, 1996.
Following his undergraduate studies at the University of Vienna, Wolfgang Oppolzer moved to Zurich in 1960 and joined the group of Prof. V. Prelog at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). Working on the structures of rifamycines, he obtained his doctorate in 1964. See: https://www.research-collection.ethz.ch/handle/20.500.11850/133994
This was followed by a postdoctoral research fellowship at Harvard University with Prof. E.J. Corey studying sulfur ylids, and two years in Basel in the Woodward Research Institute under Prof. R.B. Woodward where he worked on the synthesis of cephalosporin.
