The series is named after the chemists Edgar Heilbronner, born in Munich in 1921 and passed away in Herrliberg in 2006, and Erich Hückel, born in Berlin 1896 and died in Marburg in 1980.

Edgar Heilbronner emigrated together with his wife to Switzerland because of the Nazi regimes and studied chemistry in Zurich at the ETH where he also habilitated later on. In 1968 we changed to University of Basel.
Erich Hückel studied physics and mathematics at the University of Göttingen and habilitated at ETH Zurich as well.
