B. Trost Receives Arthur C. Cope
Award
The Arthur C. Cope Award of the
American Chemical Society (ACS),
awarded annually in recognition of outstanding work in organic chemistry,
includes
a
research
grant
of
US$ 150 000. Barry M. Trost (Stanford
University)
is
the recipient of
the award for
2004, which will
be presented at
the ACS spring
meeting.
The
award
recognizes
Trost's
extensive contributions
to
organic chemisB. M. Trost
try in the areas
of asymmetric catalysis, total synthesis,
organometallic chemistry, and the synthesis of complex molecules. During
his career he has completed syntheses
of natural products, such as juvenile hormones and their analogues, and has also
broadened the scope of available synthetic methods significantly, in part
through his work on sulfur chemistry
and palladium catalysis.[1a] He received
the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award of the US Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) in 1998 for
his concept of atom economy.[1b] In the
most recent of his numerous Communications in Angewandte Chemie he
reported on the dynamic kinetic asymmetric transformation of vinyl epoxides
under palladium catalysis.[1c]
1618
Trost studied at the University of
Pennsylvania in Philadelphia (USA)
and completed his PhD in 1965 on enolate chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology under the guidance
of Herbert O. House. He then became
assistant professor and later full
professor at the University of
Wisconsin. In 1987 he moved to Stanford University. He has received numerous awards, including honorary doctorates from the University of Lyon I
(France) and Technion in Haifa
(Israel). Trost is a member of the Editorial Board of Chemistry—A European
Journal and the Academic Advisory
Board of Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis.
S. J. Miller Receives Arthur C. Cope
Scholar Award
Arthur C. Cope Scholar Awards of the
ACS, which will be presented at the
autumn meeting, are accompanied by a
research grant of US$ 40 000. This year
Scott J. Miller of
Boston College,
a private Jesuit
university
in
Massachusetts
(USA), is one of
the recipients.
After completing his chemistry
studies at Harvard University
(USA) in 1994
with a PhD in S. J. Miller
the
research
group of David A. Evans, he undertook
postdoctoral research with Robert H.
Grubbs at the California Institute of
Technology in Pasadena.
Miller's research is focused on the
development of new methods for
organic synthesis. He makes use of the
architecture and design of biologically
relevant structures, such as peptides. In
two Communications in Angewandte
Chemie he reported on the asymmetric
addition of azides to unsaturated carbonyl compounds catalyzed by simple
peptide catalysts[2a] and on mechanistic
studies of peptide-based catalysts as
enzyme analogues.[2b]

Arthur C. Cope Senior Scholar
Award to G. Posner
Gary H. Posner will receive an
Arthur C. Cope Senior Scholar Award
at the ACS autumn meeting for his
diverse contributions to organic chemistry, and with it a research grant of
US$ 40 000. Posner completed his PhD
in 1968 under the guidance of Elias J.
Corey (Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1990)
at Harvard University. After a postdoctoral year in the research group of William G. Dauben
in
Berkeley
(CA, USA), he
took up a position at Johns
Hopkins University in Baltimore
(MD, USA).
Early in his
career
Posner
made significant
contributions to
G. H. Posner
organocopper
chemistry.
He
later extended his work to the synthesis
of steroids and vitamin D3 analogues,[3a]
as well as malaria therapeutics based on
peroxides. Posner is active in the development of new synthetic methods. He
recently reported a domino process in
Angewandte Chemie in which up to
five stereocenters can be constructed
simultaneously through titanium-promoted addition reactions.[3b]
