Otto Klung Weberbank Prize for
I. Krossing
I. Bertini receives Basolo Medal
Ivano Bertini (University of Florence,
Italy) received the Fred Basolo Medal
for outstanding achievements in the
area of inorganic chemistry. The prize
is awarded by the Northwestern University (Evanston,
IL, USA) and
by the Chicago section of the American Chemical Society. The award lecture was titled
“Metal Ions in the
over 30 years, Bertini has researched
I. Bertini
relationships in metalloproteins by
means of biophysical methods, especially NMR spectroscopy. Since 1990,
he has dedicated himself increasingly to
structural biology and is a pioneer in the
use of genome databanks. He recently
described the structural interplay
between calcium and copper in binding
to the protein S100A13 in Angewandte
Chemie[1a] and discussed the possibilities
of NMR spectroscopy of paramagnetic
metalloproteins in ChemBioChem.[1b]
He is on the advisory boards of ChemBioChem and ChemMedChem, and has
served as Editor or Chairman of the
Editorial Board of the European Journal
of Inorganic Chemistry since its inception in 1998.
Bertini completed his PhD in 1964
and his habilitation in 1969 at the
University of Florence. In 1975 he
became professor for general and inorganic chemistry and in 1999 he founded
the Center for Magnetic Resonance of
the University of Florence, which contains an impressive collection of NMR

Ingo Krossing (University of Freiburg,
Germany) received the Otto Klung
Weberbank Prize
for his outstanding
work in the synthesis and application
weakly coordinating anions. The
E 50 000 prize is
awarded by the
Free University of
Berlin and Weberbank in alternate I. Krossing
years for chemistry
and physics. “Fact or fiction?” is the
question Krossing asks in a recently
published review article on weakly coordinating anions in Angewandte Chemie.[2a] The receipt of a highly endowed
prize for young scientists is now a fact
and will allow him to extend his research
on weakly coordinating anions, their
combination with reactive cations, and
their applications. He recently reported
in Angewandte Chemie on the synthesis
and characterization of a donor-free
silver(I) alkoxide and silyl oxide.[2b]
Krossing received his PhD in 1997 in
the group of H. NCth at the Ludwig
Maximilian University of Munich and
subsequently worked as a Feodor Lynen
Fellow at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John (Canada). As a
recipient of a Liebig grant, he completed
his habilitation in 2002 at the University
of Karlsruhe, where he stayed until 2004
as a Heisenberg Fellow. He then took up
an assistant professorship the Ecole
Polytechnique FEdErale de Lausanne
(Switzerland) and became professor for
inorganic chemistry at the Albert
Ludwig University of Freiburg in 2006.
… and announced
C.-H. Wong becomes President of
Academia Sinica
Chi-Huey Wong (Scripps Institute, La
Jolla, CA, USA) has become the new
president of Academia Sinica in Taiwan,
where he will have big shoes to fill as he
replaces the chemistry Nobel laureate of
1986, Yuan-Tseh Lee. Wong studied
chemistry at the Taiwan National University and received his PhD in 1982
from the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology (Cambridge, MA, USA) in
the research group of G. M. Whitesides.
He moved, together with his doctoral
advisor, within Cambridge to Harvard
University to undertake postdoctoral
research and in 1983 became an assistant
professor at Texas A&M University. He
rose to full professor there before
answering the call in 1989
to the Scripps Institute. He
has also led the Genomics
Research Center of the Academia Sinica since 2003.
WongHs research interests cover a broad spectrum
of bioinorganic and synthetic
chemistry, from interactions
of small molecules with
DNA, and the design and
synthesis of inhibitors for C.-H. Wong
receptors and enzymes, to
the development of synthetic methods
such as programmable one-pot reactions
for the synthesis of oligosaccharides and
glycoarrays, as well as the optimization
of enzyme-catalyzed reactions such as
for the synthesis of glycoproteins. This
year he published articles on the one-pot
synthesis of a tumor-associated antigen
octasaccharide as well as the three-step
synthesis of sialic acids and their derivatives in Angewandte Chemie.[3]
