Reaxys PhD Prize

The Reaxys PhD Prize recognizes accomplished young chemists for their innovative and rigorous research. It is a global competition, open to anyone who is doing or has recently completed a PhD in any discipline of chemistry. In 2020 the prize celebrated its 10th anniversary. You can stay up to date with the latest news regarding future competitions and catch up on the 2020 symposium here.

Meet our 2020 winners

These three early career chemists were awarded the Reaxys PhD Prize 2020 during a virtual Symposium which took place from Sept-30 to Oct-2 2020. They were chosen after each of the eleven shortlisted finalists gave 15-minute presentations describing the essence of their research. They proved to have all the skills and talent expected from a Reaxys PhD Prize winner.
