J. Du Bois Receives Arthur C. Cope
Young Scholar Award
M. A. Ratner Receives Irving
Langmuir Award
“Molecular Rectifiers” is the title of one
of the first articles on molecular electronics. It was published in 1974 and
written by Mark A. Ratner.[1a] Ratner,
chemistry professor at
Northwestern University
in Evanston (USA), has
now been awarded the
Irving Langmuir Award
in Chemical Physics by
the American Chemical
Society (ACS) in recognition of this and other fundamental results.
Ratner studied chemistry at Harvard University (USA) and comM. A. Ratner
pleted his PhD in 1969
at Northwestern University. During his
career he has also spent time in
Aarhus (Denmark), M2nchen (Germany), and New York (USA). His significant and diverse contributions to
chemistry include the mean-field modeling of coupled quantum systems, the
dynamic bond percolation theory of
polymer electrolytes, advances in the
theory of intramolecular electron-transfer processes, and the development of
computational methods in chemical
quantum dynamics. Further areas of
activity of his research group include
nonlinear optics,[1b] photonics in nanoscale systems, and the energetics of
DNA–protein binding. Recently he coauthored the Communication “Bioactive Protein Nanoarrays on Nickel
Oxide Surfaces Formed by Dip-Pen
Nanolithography” published in Angewandte Chemie.[1c]

Justin Du Bois of Stanford University
(USA) has been recognized for his success in the development of new methods
in organic synthesis and natural products synthesis with an
Arthur C. Cope
Young Scholar
Award from the
ACS.
Du Bois
studied chemistry in Berkeley
(USA) and completed his PhD
J. Du Bois
in 1997 on the
total synthesis of
zaragozic acid[2a] and on manganese
complexes[2b] at the California Institute
of Technology in Pasadena (USA)
under the guidance of E. M. Carreira.
He then spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow in the research group of
S. J. Lippard at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA), before
moving to Stanford University as an
assistant professor. His research is
focused on the design and synthesis of
new transition-metal reagents and catalysts and their use in natural product
synthesis, molecular recognition, and
biological chemistry. In his most recent
Communication
in
Angewandte
Chemie he describes “A Rh-Catalyzed
C H Insertion Reaction for the Oxidative Conversion of Carbamates to Oxazolidinones”.[2c] This method makes
1,2- and 1,3-difunctionalized amines
accessible from simple alcohols, so
that, for example, the Trost synthesis of
callipeltoside can be shortened from 14
to 6 steps.
D. R. Liu Receives Arthur C. Cope
Young Scholar Award
During his undergraduate studies in
chemistry at Harvard University,
David R. Liu worked in the research
group of the Nobel Prize winner E. J.
Corey. In 1994 he graduated as the top
student of his year at Harvard University, a rare accomplishment for a science
student. He completed his PhD in 1999
on the site-specific incorporation of
non-natural amino acids in proteins, in
2004 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim
DOI: 10.1002/anie.200481032
the research group of P. G. Schultz at
the University of California, Berkeley.
As a PhD student he co-authored a
Review on “Generating New Molecular Function: A
Lesson
from
Nature”.[3a] After
completing
his
PhD he returned
to Harvard University as an assistant
professor, and was
named
associate
professor
there
last year. Liu is D. R. Liu
interested in the
chemistry and chemical biology of
molecular evolution. One focus of his
research is the use of DNA as a template
for organic synthesis, on which he
reported recently in Angewandte Chemie;[3b, c] a Review on this topic has been
accepted for publication. His Review
on the enzymatic formation of polycyclic triterpenes was the cover-picture
article of issue 16/2000.[3d] Liu has now
been awarded an Arthur C. Cope
Young Scholar Award for his important
contributions to the field of organic
chemistry/chemical biology.
