Professor Nishibayashi gave an excellent award lecture entitled Development of Catalytic Nitrogen Fixation Using Transiition Metal-Dinitrogen Complexes. He has been at the University of Tokyo since 2005 and currently has 200 publications to his name. As well as the construction of molecular scaffolds for supporting dinuclear catalysts for nitrogen fixation, Professor Nishibayashi also studies the design and synthesis of transition metal catalysts for organic transformations. More information about his work can be found at his website.
