H. Nth receives Bavarian Medal
Heinrich Nth (Ludwig Maximilians
University of Munich, LMU) received
the Bavarian Constitutional Medal in
Gold. Nth served as president of the
German Chemical Society (GDCh) in
1988/89 and 1992/93, and of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BAdW) in
1998–2005. From
1969 to 1999, Nth
guided the progress
of
the
journal
Chemischen
Berichte and its successor, the European Journal of
Inorganic Chemistry, as an editor.
Nth
completed his doctoral
H. Nth
thesis in 1954 with
E. Wiberg at the
LMU, and worked at Imperial Chemical
Industries Ltd. (UK) in 1956/57. He
completed his habilitation at the LMU
in 1962 and became a professor there in
1964. In 1966, he moved to the Philips
University of Marburg, and he returned
to the LMU in 1969, where he remained
beyond his formal retirement in 1996.
His research has concentrated on boron
and aluminum chemistry, as well as on
inorganic polymers. He is still an active
researcher, as demonstrated by the pub-

The German Physical Society (DPG)
has awarded its highest distinction for
experimental physics, the Stern–Gerlach
Medal, to Erich Sackmann (Technical
University of Munich) for his work on
the dynamics of
membranes
and
biopolymer
networks, the mechanical properties of
membranes,
and
the
interactions
between cells and
surfaces. This work
has established him
as a founder of the
physics of biosystems. He outlined E. Sackmann
the origin and perspectives of biophysics in a contribution to a special issue of
ChemPhysChem,[2] a journal for which
he is a member of the editorial board.
Sackmann completed his doctoral
thesis in 1964 with T. Frster at the
University of Stuttgart, and worked as a
postdoc at Bell Labs (USA) and at the
Max Planck Institute for Biophysical
Chemistry in Gttingen, where he completed his habilitation in 1974. He subsequently took up an appointment at the
University of Ulm, and in 1980, he
moved to the Technical University of
Munich. His research began with the
spectroscopy of lyotropic liquid crystals
and lipids, and then moved increasingly
in the direction of biophysics. In the
course of this research, he applied
resonance and scattering methods to
biological systems, and also developed
new methods in rheology and microscopy (among others) to understand the
self-organization and function of cells
on a physical basis.

G. Davies receives Whistler Award
Gideon J. Davies (University of York,
UK) was recognized by the International Carbohydrate Organization with
the Roy L. Whistler International
Award in Carbohydrate Chemistry
2006 for his outstanding contributions
to
carbohydrate
chemistry.
The
US$ 10 000 prize will be awarded at the
International Carbohydrate Symposium
in Whistler, BC (Canada) in July.
DaviesF award lecture will have the
title “Carbohydrate-Active Enzymes:
How Nature Makes and Breaks Glycosides”.
Davies completed his PhD in 1990 at
the University of Bristol with H. Watson
und L. Hall. He then worked as a
postdoc at the
European Molecular Biology Laboratory Outstation at
the DESY synchrotron in Hamburg
(K. S. Wilson), as
well as in York (G.
Dodson), Grenoble, and Uppsala.
In
1996,
he
returned to the G. Davies
University of York,
where he has been active as a professor
since 2004. The research focus of his
group is the structure of enzymes, especially those involved in the synthesis,
modification, and degradation of carbohydrates
(hydrolases,
transferases,
lyases, and esterases). In a recent Communication to ChemBioChem, he investigates the binding of conformationally
restricted inhibitors to a b-glucosidase.[3]
