Organic Chemistry Frontiers at the 7th Pacific Symposium on Radical Chemistry

Organic Chemistry Frontiers is glad to sponsor two poster prizes at the 7th Pacific Symposium on Radical Chemistry (PSRC-7) to be held in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, from 15 – 18 July 2015. The PSRC takes place every two years, and is recognized as being one of the three major international meetings on radical chemistry (the other two being the International Symposium on Organic Free Radicals and the EUCHEM Conference on Free Radical Chemistry).  The PSRC-7 follows the successful series of PSRC symposiums held in Vancouver (2013), Shirahama (2011), Shanghai (2009), Heron Island (2007), Daejeon (2006), and Kanazawa (2003).

The symposium will cover all aspects of free radical chemistry and will bring together industrial and academic chemists from all over the world to discuss the latest advances in synthetic radical reactions, radical polymerizations, mechanistic insights into important radical reactions, new radical-based functional molecules and materials, and radicals in biology.

Take your opportunity to attend PSRC-7 by the registration deadline at 15 June 2015. More information is available at http://conference.ntu.edu.sg/psrc7/Pages/index.aspx.

Zhang-Jie Shi was awarded the Mr. and Mrs. Sun Chan Memorial Award in Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry Frontiers warmly congratulates Zhang-Jie Shi, the Editorial Board member of the journal, on being awarded the Mr. and Mrs. Sun Chan Memorial Award in Organic Chemistry at the 13th International Symposium for Chinese Organic Chemists (ISCOC-13) held in Xiamen University, China from 19th -22nd December, 2014.

Professor Zhang-Jie Shi

Dr. Shi, Professor in Chemistry from Peking University, is now serving as an Editorial Board member of Organic Chemistry Frontiers. He received a BS degree in 1996 from the Department of Chemistry, East China Normal University. He further joined Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIOC, CAS) and obtained his PhD degree (2001) under the supervision of Professor Shengming Ma. He then moved to Harvard University as a postdoctoral researcher with Professor Gregory Verdine and later as a research associate with Professor Chuan He at the University of Chicago. In 2004, he joined the faculty of College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Peking University and was promoted to full professor in 2008.

He has received many international awards, including the Mr. and Mrs. Sun Chan Memorial Award in 2014, OMCOS Award in 2013, and Tetrahedron Young Investigator Award in 2011 where he was the inaugural Asian recipient.

Dr. Shi was recognized for his seminal contribution in organometallic chemistry and catalysis, especially in the field of the activation of “inert” bonds and small molecules. So far, he has published more than 100 peer-reviewed papers which have been cited over 7,100 times by others.

To find out more about Dr. Shi’s research, please take a look at his publications on the Royal Society of Chemistry journals in the past 12 months:

ISCOC and the Mr. and Mrs. Sun Chan Memorial Award in Organic Chemistry

Starting in 1990, the International Symposium for Chinese Organic Chemists (ISCOC) took place every other year and has become an important platform for bringing together worldwide Chinese chemists to exchange their scientific findings, cultivate mutual understandings, and foster possible collaborations.

The Mr. and Mrs. Sun Chan Memorial Award in Organic Chemistry was established by Professor Sunney Chan, director of the Institute of Chemistry of Academia Sinica in Taiwan, to recognize outstanding organic chemists under the age of 40 during ISCOC.

Organic Chemistry Frontiers is a proud supporter of ISCOC-13, sponsoring the poster prizes, the winners of which received a certificate and a copy of book from the Royal Society of Chemistry’s popular chemistry collection.
