the Silver Nagoya Medal (2001) and the
Chemical Society of Japan=s Prize (2003).
Degussa Prize for T. Bach
Awarded…
E. Nakamura receives
Humboldt Prize
Eiichi Nakamura (University of Tokyo)
will join the groups of J. Okuda and C.
Bolm at RWTH Aachen
University (Germany) this
autumn and next summer to
carry out research work
thanks to a Humboldt
Research Award from the
Alexander von Humboldt
Foundation.
The
main
research themes of his own
group are focused on new
organometallic intermediates and catalysis, organoE. Nakamura
metallic mechanisms of
important synthetic reactions, carbon cluster complexes in material science, and the nanoscience of
custom-made cluster molecules in biology. He recently reported in Chemistry –
An Asian Journal on gene delivery by
aminofullerene with a focus on structural
requirements for efficient transfection,[1a]
as well as the mechanism of remote
conjugate addition of lithium organocuprates to polyconjugated carbonyl
compounds.[1b] He serves on the editorial
board for Chemistry – An Asian Journal
as well as the international advisory
board of Angewandte Chemie.
Nakamura completed his undergraduate studies and doctorate (1978; I.
Kuwajima) at the Tokyo Institute of
Technology, before joining G. Storck at
Columbia University (NY, USA) as a
postdoctoral researcher. In 1980 he
joined the Tokyo Institute of Technology
as an assistant professor and became a
full professor there in 1993. Since 1995,
he has been a professor at the University
of Tokyo. Other honors include receiving

Thorsten Bach (Technical University
Munich, Germany) has received the
Award for Chirality in Chemistry from
Degussa AG (DAsseldorf, Germany).
The award, which
has a value of
E 5000, was established in 2004 to
recognize
young
chemists for their
innovative work in
chiral
chemistry.
Bach is recognized
in particular for his T. Bach
work in the area of
asymmetric catalysis and photochemistry; he recently reported on enantiomerically pure bicyclo[4.2.0]octanes by
Cu-catalyzed [2þ2] photocycloaddition
and enantiotopos-differentiating ring
opening in Angewandte Chemie.[2]
Besides this topic, his research group is
interested in heterocylic chemistry and
the synthesis of biologically active substances to establish structure–activity
relationships of antibiotic and cytotoxic
compounds.
Bach carried out his undergraduate
studies at the University of Heidelberg
and at the University of Southern California (USA) with G. A. Olah (Nobel
Prizewinner, 1994). He completed his
PhD in 1991 with M. T. Reetz at the
University of Marburg and then joined
D. A. Evans at Harvard University
(Cambridge, MA, USA) as a postdoctoral researcher. He carried out his
habilitation studies at the University of
MAnster (1992–96). Following a visiting
professorship in Helsinki, Bach returned
to MAnster as a professor in 1997. In
2000 he joined the Technical University
Munich. Earlier this year, he was elected
a Member of the German Academy of
Sciences, Leopoldina.
Bessel Prize for J. Dupont
Jairton Dupont (Universidade Federal
do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Porto
Alegre, Brazil) has been recognized
with a Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Prize.
The prize is awarded by the Alexander

von Humboldt Foundation to young
scientists from abroad who already are
recognized as outstanding researchers in
their fields. The award will allow
Dupont to spend some time as a collaborative researcher with J. Gladysz at the
University of Erlangen-NArnberg (Germany).
Dupont studied chemistry at the
PontifFcia Universidade CatGlica do
Rio Grande do Sul in Porto Alegre
(Brazil) and completed his PhD in 1988
under the guidance of M. Pfeffer at the
UniversitH Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg
(France). Following a postdoctoral fellowship with S. G. Davies at the University of Oxford (UK), he joined the
UFRGS at Porto Alegre as a visiting
scientist, and in 1992 he was appointed a
professor of organic chemistry there. He
has since returned as a professor to
Strasbourg (2000
and 2004) and also
spent time at Erlangen-NAremberg
(2005–2006). The
research interests
of his group are
focused on synthetic organometallic chemistry, with
an emphasis on
homogeneous and J. Dupont
biphasic catalysis
in ionic liquids. He recently reported in
Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis on a
copper-free catalytic system for the
arylation of alkynes[3a] and on halidefree imidazolium ionic liquids.[3b] He
also highlighted the non-innocent
nature of 1,3-dialkylimidazolium ionic
liquids in Angewandte Chemie.[3c]
