M. Chisholm Elected to US
M. Quack to give Jost Lectures
Martin Quack (ETH Zrich, Switzerland) is to deliver the Wilhelm Jost
Memorial Lecture Series of the Academy of Sciences in G&ttingen (Germany) and the German Bunsen Society
of Physical Chemistry. Quack studied
chemistry in Darmstadt (Germany), Grenoble (France), and
G&ttingen. He obtained a doctorate
from the Ecole Polytechnique F0d0rale de
(Switzerland) for work on
unimolecular reactions
in the group of J. Troe.
In 1976/77, he worked
M. Quack
as a postdoc in the
group of W. H. Miller
(UC Berkeley). In 1978, he obtained a
habilitation in physical chemistry from
the University of G&ttingen, where he
subsequently worked as a professor
until 1982. He then moved to the University of Bonn (Germany) and on to
Zurich a year later. Quack has been a
member of the editorial board of Angewandte Chemie since 2001.
Quack<s research is focused on
molecular kinetics and spectroscopy
and the understanding of the fundamental physical and chemical processes. He
successfully combines theoretical and
experimental techniques, in particular
high-resolution and time-resolved IR
spectroscopy. Theoretical aspects of his
work include approximations in quantum dynamics and time-resolved quantum dynamics of intramolecular energy
flow and vibrational redistribution. His
group also studies fundamental symmetry principles in molecular processes as
well as molecular chirality and parity
violation. He discussed progress in this
Last year, Malcolm H. Chisholm (Ohio
State University, Columbus, USA) was
recognized with the Fred Basolo Medal
for Inorganic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society. He was also
elected to the Akademie der Naturforscher
Leopoldina in Halle (Germany). This year
the trend continues:
recently elected to
the US National
Academy of Sciences. The Chisholm
group has developed a new generation of polymers by
M. Chisholm
using alkoxide catalysts. They also
investigate complexes with metal–
metal multiple bonds, p-donor ligands
in organometallic chemistry, and the
synthesis of polyesters from cyclic
esters which are obtained from biomass.
A communication on polythiophenes
with metal–metal bonds will appear in
Angewandte Chemie soon.
Chisholm earned a PhD under the
guidance of D. C. Bradley from
London University (UK) in 1969, and
subsequently moved to the University
of Western Ontario (Canada) as a postdoc and lecturer in H. C. Clark<s group.
He moved to Princeton University in
1972 and to Indiana University in 1978.
In 2000, he accepted his current professorship at the Ohio State University.
From 1995 to 2001, he was a member
of the editorial board of Chemistry—A
European Journal.
