A. Zumbusch Receives Sommerfeld
Prize and Goes to London
F. D. Toste Receives Pfizer Award
F. Dean Toste (University of California,
Berkeley) is the recipient of the 2005
Pfizer Award for Creativity in Organic
Chemistry. Toste
was awarded for
his contributions to
the development
of catalysts and catalytic methods for
organic synthesis,
particularly gold(i)catalyzed propargyl
Claisen rearrangements, Conia-ene

tions and 5-endodig cyclizations of acetylenic b-keto
esters.[1] The goal of his work is to facilitate the synthesis of complex molecules
with interesting structural, biological,
and physical properties. Toste-s research
group is also involved in the development of new methods for the addition
of water and alcohols to enones, providing an alternative access to aldol
Toste studied at the University of
Toronto and received his PhD for work
with B. M. Trost at Stanford University
in 2000. He carried out his postdoctoral
research in the group of R. H. Grubbs at
the California Institute of Technology
(Pasadena) between 2001 and 2002.
Since that time, he has been an assistant
professor at the University of California
in Berkeley.
Andreas Zumbusch (University College
London) received the Arnhold Sommerfeld Prize of the Bavarian Academy of
Sciences for his contributions to biophysical chemistry. He was awarded for
the development of coherent antiStokes Raman scattering (CARS)
microscopy, which permits the examination of living cells in high three-dimensional resolution without the need for
staining. Moreover, he was honored for
his contributions to single-molecule
spectroscopy, for example, in the use of
green fluorescent protein as a biological
probe. His research group recently
reported in ChemPhysChem on the
vibronic excitation of single molecules
as a new technique for the study of
low-temperature dynamics.[2]
Zumbusch studied Chemistry in
Munich and Bordeaux. He received his
PhD in 1996 under the direction of H.
Schn9ckel at the University of Karlsruhe (Germany).
From 1997 to 1998
he worked as a
postdoc in the
research group of
X. S. Xie at the
Pacific Northwest
National Laboratory in Richland,
Washington. Starting in 1999, he led
a research group
A. Zumbusch
in the chemistry
department at the
University of Munich (C. Br@uchle),
where he was promoted to professor
for his work in high-sensitivity optical
microscopy and its application in biophysics. Since February of 2005 he has
been working as a Reader at University
College London.
Several Awards for A. Mller
Achim MAller (University of Bielefeld,
Germany), whose large metal clusters
continue to gather attention, received
three additional distinctions. The UniversitB Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris)
awarded him an honorary doctorate.
The title was conferred during a collo-
2005 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim
quium about the
frontiers of inorganic chemistry, at
which MAller discussed perspectives
in nanotechnology,
including porous
capsules, artificial
cells, sphere surfaces, and “supersupramolecular”
chemistry. Further- A. MAller
accorded with the Premio Elhuyar
Goldschmidt of the Real Sociedad
EspaFola de QuHmica (RSEQ, Spanish
Chemical Society), and he also delivered this year-s annual Lewis Lecture
at the University of Cambridge. He
recently reported on uniquely linked triangular motifs and their magnetic properties at the surfaces of spherical capsules composed of molybdenum and vanadium or iron in Angewandte Chemie.[3]
MAller received his PhD in 1965
from the University of G9ttingen (Germany) under the direction of O.
Glemser in work on thermochemistry
and completed a habilitation there in
the field of vibrational spectroscopy. In
1971, he accepted a professorship at
the University of Dortmund (Germany), and has been working at the University of Bielefeld since 1977. His
research involves the chemistry of transition metals, particularly inorganic
supramolecular chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry in synthesis, spectroscopy, and theory. “The Chemistry of
Nanomaterials”, edited by A. MAller,
C. N. R. Rao, and A. K. Cheetham, and
published by Wiley-VCH appeared at
the beginning of 2004.
