About the Serial Volume Editors

Colin Hubbard Serial Volume Editor

Colin D. Hubbard was raised in Norfolk, England. He completed his Secondary Education at Hastings Grammar School, and his Tertiary Education at the University of Sheffield, earning a Bachelors Degree and a Doctorate in Chemistry, the latter with R.G. Wilkins and S.F.A. Kettle. Postdoctoral research followed at MIT and Cornell University, both with G.G. Hammes, and subsequently in Biochemistry at the University of California in Berkeley, with J.F. Kirsch. He joined the Faculty of Chemistry at the University of New Hampshire, becoming a full Professor in 1979. In 1994 he began a continuing and ongoing collaboration with Rudi van Eldik at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, being resident there for five years. This was followed by a contract as a Research Scientist and Manager at Unilever Research (Colworth Laboratories, UK). He has spent sabbaticals at the Universities of Kent, Canterbury, Alberta, Leicester, and Sevilla, Spain. A selection of significant publications, with due acknowledgement to all other authors, illustrating his research interests, include, Inorg. Chem, 4, 828 (1965), ibid 5, 622 (1966), results contributing to formulation of the Eigen-Wilkins mechanism, proton tunnelling (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 98, 1870 (1976)); mechanism of acylation of chymotrypsin (J. Biol. Chem., 252, 1633 (1977)); reactivities of iron(II)-diimine complexes (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 106, 1717 (1984) & Inorg. Chem. 31, 1383 (1992)), a volume profile analysis for carbonic anhydrase catalysis, (J. Phys. Chem., 100, 9161 (1996)), a 10 year collation and review of volumes of reaction and volumes of activation for inorganic, organometallic and organic reactions (Chem. Rev., 98, 2167, (1998)). He has contributed articles in volumes honouring F. Basolo, and R.G. Pearson, in Coord. Chem. Rev., and Inorg. Chim. Acta. (2010). He was co-editor and author of the book “Chemistry under Extreme or non-Classical Conditions”, (1997), and co-editor and author in Advances in Inorganic Chemistry,
