As a boy, Dieter Sicker, born in 1954 in Chemnitz, was intrigued by the phenomena of material transformations in the kitchen. However, later, he decided to become a chemist rather than a cook. He is convinced that the manifold knowledge gained in the isolation of natural products is helpful for any organic chemist. Working as a lecturer and a practical supervisor at the Institute of Organic Chemistry at the University of Leipzig, he was awarded the title apl. Professor in 1997. He is fond of presenting experimental shows in which the beauty of chemistry is both shown and explained to the public.
