Date:6/19/2012

Neuchtel, Switzerland, June 19, 2012 - Reaxys announces the winners of the Reaxys PhD Prize. Awarding innovative and original research in organic, organometallic and inorganic chemistry, the Reaxys PhD Prize celebrates the top research being performed by leading young chemists across the globe.

The 2012 Reaxys PhD Prize Winners are:

  • Gregory Hamilton at University of California, Berkeley USA
  • Debashis Mandal at Nagoya University, Japan
  • Craig Stivala, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA

The winners have been selected from 45 finalists (see http://prize.reaxys.com/ for details of all the finalists) by the Chairs of the Review Board: Professors Tony Barrett (Imperial College, UK), Barry Trost (Stanford, USA) and Henry Wong (Chinese University Hong Kong, China).

Professor Wong said, "The prize goes from strength to strength. The three winners feel very proud to have been selected from such a strong and diverse field of applicants. I am personally very pleased to see such a diverse set of chemistries represented. This year there were a significant number of inorganic and organometallic submissions in addition to the usual strong organic submissions. I am sure that all of these young chemists have extremely bright futures ahead of them."

Launched in January 2010 the Reaxys PhD Prize has received over 900 submissions from well over 400 of the world's top chemistry institutions. This year a record 350 submissions were received from 39 countries. Submissions consisted of a representative peer-reviewed piece of published research, PhD supervisor's recommendation letter and a CV. Entries were closely scrutinized by a review board of over 80 international chemists from academia and industry. The reviewers judged the entries for originality, innovation, importance to the field, applicability, rigor of approach and publication quality.

The three winners and 42 other finalists have each been invited to attend the Reaxys PhD Prize Symposium at the 244th American Chemical Society Meeting in Philadelphia, on Sunday August 19 2012. The winners are invited to give an oral presentation of their research, and the finalists will participate in a special poster session and reception. The symposium will also feature presentations from Professors Martin Jansen (Max-Planck, Stuttgart, Germany) and Barry Trost (Stanford, USA)
