Congratulations to the SupraChem 2019 Award Winners!

By .

SupraChem 2019 was recently held at the Julius-Maximilians-Universität in Würzburg, Germany and organised by Florian Beuerle and Organic Chemistry Frontiers Associate Editor Frank WürthnerOrganic Chemistry Frontiers was proud to support and sponsor the meeting, alongside Chemical Science and Materials Chemistry Frontiers.

This free-to-attend meeting brought together supramolecular chemists from Germany and neighbouring countries and covered a range of topics from supramolecular machinery to materials and analytical techniques to host-guest chemistry and sensing. Keynote lectures were given by world-renowned supramolecular chemists Vivian W. W. Yang, J. Fraser Stoddart and, new Chemical Science Editor-in-Chief, Andrew I. Cooper. These speakers helped generate some great discussion alongside the additional 27 presentations and led to a very successful meeting.

Chemical Science Deputy Editor Jeremy Allen was in attendance to meet with the delegates and represent the Royal Society of Chemistry. He also helped present some poster prizes on behalf of Chemical Science and Organic Chemistry Frontiers:

  • Chemical Science poster prize winner: Jonas Matern (Universität Münster) for “Insights into the complex self-assembly pathways of a chiral, oligophenyleneethynylene (OPE) based Pd(II) complex”
  • Organic Chemistry Frontiers poster prize winner: Julia Bartl (TU Kaiserslautern) for “A cyclopeptide-derived molecular cage for anion encapsulation”

There were a further 5 poster prizes awarded from other journals and publishing houses, these went to:

  • Meike Sapotta (Universität Würzburg) for “A water-soluble perylene bisimide cyclophane as a molecular probe for the recognition of aromatic alkaloids”
  • Irene Regeni (TU Dortmund) for “Self-assembled [Pd2L4] coordination cages based on well-known organic dyes”
  • Oleksandr Shyshov (Universität Ulm) for “Supramolecular chemistry of all-cis hexafluorocyclohexane and its derivatives”
  • Hendrik V. Schröder (FU Berlin) for “Accordion-like motion in electrochemically switchable crown ether/ammonium oligorotaxanes”
  • Sebastian M. Kopp (Universität Würzburg) for “Toward singlet fission: chromophore multiplication in pentacene derivatives with adamantyl bridges”

Chulbom Lee is Professor in Chemistry Department at the Seoul National University (SNU), Korea. He obtained his BS and MS degrees in Chemistry from SNU, and PhD from Stanford University, USA. In 1998, he moved to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to work with Professor Samuel Danishefsky as a US Army Breast Cancer Research Fellow. In 2001, he joined the Chemistry Department of Princeton University as Assistant Professor and in 2008, he moved back to his alma mater, SNU, as Professor of Chemistry. He was the recipient of the Roche Award in Organic Chemistry (1998), the U.S. Army Breast Cancer Research Fellowship (1999-2001), the Thieme Journal Award (2001), the Amgen Young Investigator Award (2006), the SNU Teaching Award (2011), and the Chang Sehee Award from the Organic Chemistry division of the Korean Chemical Society (2015).

 

 

 

 

 

Research Highlights

His research focuses on the development of novel reactions and strategies for chemical synthesis. In particular, his group has been in engaged in the design, mechanistic studies and implementation of new catalytic reactions mediated by transition metal vinylidene complexes. Another ongoing research of the Lee group is total synthesis of natural products.
