R. Zare Receives Teaching Award
Richard N. Zare, Professor in Natural
Science at Stanford University (USA),
received the 2004 James Flack Norris
Award of the Northeastern Section of
the American Chemical
Society for outstanding
achievement in teaching.
His award speech was entitled “Chemical Fizzics:
Seeing
Chemistry
in
Action”. Zares research
on laser chemistry has led
to a better understanding
of chemical reactions at
the molecular level. His
important
experimental
and theoretical contribuR. N. Zare
tions to our knowledge of
molecular collision processes and to chemical analysis include
the development of laser-induced fluorescence as a means to investigate reaction dynamics. He recently co-authored
a Communication in Angewandte
Chemie entitled “Continuous TwoChannel Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometric Detection of Electrosprayed
Ions” and an article in ChemPhysChem
on the photon-counting histogram and
one-photon excitation.[1] Zare is a
member of the editorial advisory
boards of these two journals and the
author of a textbook on angular momentum in chemistry and physics.[1c]
Zare completed his PhD in chemical
physics in 1964 at Harvard University
(USA) under the guidance of D. Herschbach (Nobel Prize 1986) and then
became assistant professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT,
USA). From 1966 to 1969 he held joint
appointments at the University of Colorado at Boulder in the departments of
chemistry, physics, and astrophysics. He
was appointed full professor at Colum-
510
bia University in 1969 and moved to
Stanford University in 1977.
Franco-Spanish Prize to
E. Carmona
Distinction for G. Hfle
Ernesto Carmona has been awarded the
Franco-Spanish Prize of the Socit
Franaise de Chimie for his internationally recognized work in organometallic
chemistry. Carmona completed his
PhD in 1974 at the University of Seville
(Spain) under the
guidance of F. Gonzalez. After a postdoctoral
period
from 1974 to 1977
with the Nobel laureate Sir Geoffrey
Wilkinson at Imperial College London
(UK), he returned
as assistant professor
to
Seville, E. Carmona
where he has been
professor since 1983. He has been a visiting professor in Alabama (USA),
Oxford (UK), and Toulouse (France).
Carmonas research on organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis is focused in particular on C H activation, C C bond-forming reactions,
transition-metal–alkyl compounds and
similar species in insertion and polymerization reactions, and the activation of
small molecules, such as N2, CO, CO2,
and ethene. He recently described in
Angewandte Chemie an equilibrium
between iridium hydride alkylidene
and iridium hydride alkene isomers.[3]
Carmona is a member of the Editorial
Board of Chemistry – A European Journal, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
Gerhard Hfle has been recognized
with a Karl Heinz Beckurts Award for
his work in the
field of natural
products synthesis
along with Hans
Reichenbach. The
award is presented
in
memory
of
the physicist Karl
Heinz Beckurts by
the foundation of
the same name
of the Helmholtz
Association of Na- G. Hfle
tional
Research
Centers (in Germany). Beckurts
worked at the nuclear research facilities
in Karlsruhe und Jlich (Germany).
From 1980 he was a member of the
board of directors of Siemens AG. His
commitment to nuclear energy made
him a target for terrorism, and he died
as a victim of a terrorist attack in 1986.
Hfle completed his PhD in 1968
with W. Steglich at the Technische
Hochschule
Mnchen (Germany),
undertook postdoctoral research with
J. E. Baldwin at MIT, and completed
his habilitation in 1975 at the Technische
Universitt Berlin (Germany) with F.
Bohlmann. He has been director of the
natural products chemistry section of
the Gesellschaft fr Biotechnologische
Forschung in Braunschweig (Germany)
since 1978 and extraordinary professor
at the technical university there since
1983. The work of Hfle and Reichenbach on secondary metabolites from
myxobacteria have enabled access to
novel classes of natural products. Hfle
discovered the epothilones: a class of
natural products which are active
against tumor cells that are resistant to
other cytostatic drugs. An epothilone
drug is currently in the final phase of
clinical trials. Recently both prize winners reported in Angewandte Chemie
on tubulysins from myxobacteria.[2] A
Highlight by Hfle entitled “Long
Sought The Bioactive Conformation of
Epothilone and Its Binding in Tubulin”
will appear soon in Angewandte Chemie.
