president of the Chemical Society of
Japan, which celebrated its 125th birthday this year.

R. Noyori Takes up RIKEN
As of October 1, Ryoji Noyori has taken
over as president of RIKEN, the national research institute of Japan. He is
now head of an institution with around
3000 employees, 1800
visiting scientists per
year, and 1000 students, at seven locations in Japan and
three centers in the
UK and the USA.
RIKEN (Rikagaku
Kenkyusho, meaning
school for science and
R. Noyori
research center) was
founded in 1917 as a private foundation
and has been run since 1958 as a public
institution. Since October 2003 it has
been an independent administrative institution under the auspices of the
Japanese government.
Noyori acquired bachelor1s and master1s degrees from Kobe University
(Japan) and completed his PhD there
in 1967, under the supervision of H.
Nozaki, on the first example of organometallic asymmetric catalysis. He was
then appointed associate professor at
Nagoya University, and only later, in
1969, had the opportunity to carry out
postdoctoral research with E. J. Corey
(Harvard). Back in Nagoya he was
promoted to professor in 1972 and to
this day has remained faithful to this
institution. His work on asymmetric
hydrogenation earned him the Nobel
Prize in 2001,[1] together with W. S.
Knowles and K. B. Sharpless. Noyori is
a member of the International Advisory
Board of Angewandte Chemie and chair-

Germany), whose large metal clusters

two further honors: The Russian
Academy of Sciences (Moscow)
has awarded him
doctorate, and
A. M=ller
The University
of Kentucky in
Lexington (USA) has invited him as
the Lyle Dawson Lecturer on the topic
“From Protein-Sized Clusters to SuperSupramolecular Chemistry”.
M=ller completed his PhD in 1965 in
GGttingen (Germany) under the guidance of O. Glemser and complete his
habilitation there. In 1971 he moved to
the Universit>t Dortmund as professor;
he has been at the Universit>t Bielefeld
since 1977. His research encompasses
synthetic, spectroscopic, and theoretical
aspects of transition-metal inorganicsupramolecular and bioinorganic chemistry. His most recent Communication in
Angewandte Chemie deals with nanochemistry at its best: the fixing of cations
in well-defined positions in tunable
artificial cell channels.[2b] In addition to
numerous other honors he holds several
honorary doctorates.
W. A. Herrmann Awarded
Honorary Doctorate
Wolfgang A. Herrmann has been awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Rennes (France). Professor of
Inorganic Chemistry at the Technische
Universit>t M=nchen (TUM, Germany), Herrmann has been recognized for
his work in the field of metal complexes
and their application in catalysis. His
2003 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim
research is mainly focused on metal
carbenes,[3a] metal oxides, and lanthanoid organic and
bimetallic compounds
multiple bonds.
work he has also
contributed to
numerous industrial processes.
He recently reported

for the Catalytic
Conversion of Methane into Methanol”
in Angewandte Chemie.[3b]
Herrmann studied in Munich (under
the Nobel Laureate E. O. Fischer),
completed his PhD and his habilitation
in Regensburg (under the guidance of
H. Brunner), and spent a postdoctoral
period in the research group of P. S.
Skell in Pennsylvania (USA). He became professor in 1979 at the Universit>t Regensburg (Germany), took up an
appointment in Frankfurt am Main in
1982, and in 1985 moved on to the TUM,
where he has been president since 1995.
He already holds honorary doctorates
from several universities. He is a recipient of the Bundesverdienstkreuz (Federal Cross of Merit) and is an officer of
the French Legion of Honor. Herrmann
is a member of the Editorial Board of
Angewandte Chemie and co-editor of
several handbooks. From July 5 to 9,
2004 he will chair the 14th International
Symposium on Homogeneous Catalysis
in Munich.
