Leading German Researcher awarded Elsevier's 2011 Tetrahedron Prize
Date:2/28/2012

Amsterdam, February 28, 2012 Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announces that leading German scientist, Professor Dr. Manfred T. Reetz (Emeritus) of the Max-Planck-Institut fur Kohlenforschung and Hans Meerwein Research Professor at Philipps-Universitt, Marburg, has been awarded the 2011 Tetrahedron Prize for Creativity in Organic Chemistry.

The Executive Board of Editors of Elsevier's Tetrahedron Publications selected Professor Reetz for his many outstanding contributions to synthetic organic chemistry, especially for his work on enantioselective catalysis to control stereoselectivity. He has been prominent in the discovery and development of enzyme catalysts for asymmetric reactions. These enzyme catalysts can be developed in the laboratory to suit a specific reaction using a process of directed evolution: repeatedly selecting and growing the host organism which shows the highest yield of the enzyme required.

"Winners of the Tetrahedron prize are leaders in their field. They are the scientists who, through their outstanding creativity in organic chemistry, have moved the field in a new and significant direction. Elsevier is proud to recognize this creativity by the presentation of this prize," Diddel Francissen, Executive Publisher for the Tetrahedron Publications at Elsevier, said of the annual prize.

Elsevier's Tetrahedron Prize consists of a gold medal and a monetary award.Established in 1980 to honor the memory of the founding co-Chairmen of the Tetrahedron Publications, Professor Sir Robert Robinson and Professor Robert Burns Woodward, it is awarded for creativity in Organic Chemistry or Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry. Previous recipients include: Albert Eschenmoser, Elias J. Corey, Gilbert Stork, Arthur J. Birch, Michael J.S. Dewar, William S. Johnson, Ryoji Noyori; K. Barry Sharpless, Alan R. Battersby; A
