Tetrahedron prize 2012 awarded to Prof. Paul A. Wender
The Executive Board of Editors and Elsevier, the Publisher of Tetrahedron Publications, are delighted to announce that the Tetrahedron Prize for Creativity in Organic Chemistry for 2012 has been awarded to Professor Paul A. Wender, Stanford University, USA.
The Tetrahedron Prize for 2012 honours one of the most creative synthetic organic chemists of our time. Professor Wender has made many highly significant original contributions to synthetic and bioorganic chemistry, ranging from the discovery and development of new reactions, through total syntheses of many key natural product target molecules, to the design of new agents for treating major human diseases.
The Tetrahedron Prize will be presented to Professor Wender at the Fall 2013 ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis, USA. The date for the Prize Symposium and presentation of the Award is yet to be decided.
