Jennifer Schomaker joins OCF as Associate Editor

By .

Organic Chemistry Frontiers is delighted to welcome Professor Jennifer Schomaker (University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA) as Associate Editor for the journal.

Biography

Jennifer Schomaker began her research career at Dow Chemical in Organic Chemicals and Polymers, later moving to Agricultural Chemicals Process Research, where she participated in route selection and scale-up campaigns for two new herbicides. After 7 years in industry, she obtained her Ph.D. with Professor Babak Borhan at Michigan State University in 2006 before moving to UC-Berkeley as an NIH postdoctoral fellow under Professors Robert G. Bergman and F. Dean Toste. She joined the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2009, where she is a full professor.

 

 

 

 

Research Highlights

Her research focuses on new methodologies for preparing stereochemically complex, densely functionalized amines, catalyst-controlled, tunable chemo- and site-selective C-H functionalizations, uncovering new reactivities catalyzed by first-row transition metals, total synthesis of bioactive natural and unnatural products, and development of new bioorthogonal labeling reagents.

Check some of her publications at Royal Society of Chemistry:

Arjan W. Kleij joins OCF as Associate Editor

By .

Organic Chemistry Frontiers is delighted to welcome Professor Arjan W. Kleij (Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia, Spain) as Associate Editor for the journal.

Biography

Arjan W. Kleij received his MSc in 1996 and PhD in 2000 from Utrecht University working on dendrimer- and polymer-supported homogeneous catalysts. In 2000, he moved to industry and worked for more than 3 years at Avantium in its pharmaceutical branch, and later at Hexion as a research scientist. In 2002-2005, he was a postdoc at UAM in Madrid (Spain) and at the University of Amsterdam. In 2006, he moved to the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) and became Group Leader, and was promoted to ICREA Professor in 2011. He is the recipient of a NWO Talent Fellowship and an ICREA junior grant, and recently featured in the author profile section of Angewandte Chemie. Arjan has (co)authored around 180 papers and 4 patent applications with >9600 citations (h-index 55). He is an advisory board member for ChemSusChem and editorial board member for the Journal of CO2 Utilization. He is chair of the Carbon Dioxide Conversion Catalysis (CDCC) conference and the EuGSC-4.

 

Research Highlights

His research is centered on the use of effective and new catalytic solutions (both metal- and organocatalysisorientated) towards the preparation of fine chemicals, pharma-relevant compounds and novel materials based on bio-based polymers. Focuses are on exquisite control over chemo-, regio-, diastereo- and enantio-selectivity features creating new synthetic opportunities of fundamental and industrial interest.

Check some of his publications at Royal Society of Chemistry:

Celebration of the 75th birthday of Professor Julius Rebek, Jr.

By .

On October 17-20, 2019, a Symposium on Supramolecular Chemistry in Celebration of Prof. Julius Rebek Jr.’s 75th birthday was held at the University of Shanghai, hosted by Prof. Yang Yu. More than 30 alumni of Professor Rebek presented their research, covering an enormous spread of research inspired by their academic teacher Julius Rebek from supramolecular chemistry to catalysis, biological chemistry up to materials science. At this event a printed version of a themed collection of Organic Chemistry Frontiers dedicated to Professor Julius Rebek on the occassion of his 75th birthday in April 2019 was given to Prof. Rebek by the two guest editors, Pablo Ballester and Frank Würthner (see picture below).
