Celebrating Ian Paterson’s 60th Birthday

To celebrate Ian Paterson’s 60th birthday we have collected together all of his articles published by the Royal Society of Chemistry in one place

In May 2014, Ian Paterson celebrates his sixtieth birthday. Eighty students have completed PhDs under his guidance. To mark this milestone, the RSC are collating the papers he has published in RSC journals and making them available to everybody. Ian was born in Dundee, and studied at St Andrew’s University. Two papers were published in the Journal of the Chemical Society as a result of his undergraduate research. He then moved to the University of Cambridge to work with Ian Fleming and to contribute further to RSC publications. A postdoctoral fellowship at Columbia University followed, working with Gilbert Stork, who had published fewer papers with the RSC than Ian. Ian then returned to the UK, first to UCL and then to Cambridge, where he has been for the last three decades.He has developed new methods for stereoselective transformations, particularly the boron-mediated aldol reaction, and used these in the syntheses of larger and larger molecules with increasing stereochemical complexity. The first report of his approach to discodermolide appeared in Chem Comm (1993) and, in due course, the synthesis was scaled up so that it could be used for clinical development. Studies on spongistatin, spirastrellolide, dictyostatin and other complex natural products have all been reported in RSC journals, as well as investigations of hybrids and semi-synthetic analogues. Ian has been elected to fellowships both of the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and has won many RSC prizes including the Meldola Prize (1983), Hickinbottom Fellowship (1989), Bader Award (1996), Synthetic Organic Chemistry Award (2001), and the Tilden Prize (2009).Professor Jonathan Goodman
