Jay Siegel and Kim Baldridge
to Move from California to
Leibniz Award 2003 to Ferdi
To be among the winners of the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Program of the
German Research Foundation (DFG) is
an honor and a privilege for any researcher, last but not least because it
allows one to spend those extra 1.55 ME
over five years. This year, Ferdi Sch¸th
(Max Planck Institute for Coal Research, M¸lheim, Germany) is among
the ten honorees.
His research is mainly devoted to the
synthesis of solids with tailor-made
properties and functions, especially for
catalysis. Mesoporous solids and crystal
growth from solution are of central
importance to his work.
Sch¸th received his PhD in 1988
from the University of M¸nster under
the guidance of Wicke and spent his
post-doc time in 1989 with L. D. Schmidt
in Minneapolis, MN. The same year, he
graduated from law school. In 1993, he
was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the
group of Stucky (Santa Barbara, CA).
He earned his Habilitation in Mainz
(Germany) to become a professor in
Frankfurt am Main in 1995 and a
Director at the Max Planck Institute in
M¸lheim an der Ruhr (Germany) in

Sch¸th is a co-editor of the ™Handbook

This spring, Jay Siegel and Kim
Baldridge (University of California, San Diego) will assume professorships for Organic Chemistry and Computational Chemistry, respectively, at the University
of Zurich.
Siegel received his PhD from
Princeton University in 1985 (supervisor: Kurt Mislow). After
postdoctoral studies with JeanMarie Lehn, he started his academic career in San Diego in
1986. His research is focused on
