Congratulations to our 2020 finalists!


We are delighted to announce the names of the 45 finalists of the Reaxys PhD Prize 2020. Through their research, these young chemists have shown the Review Committee all the qualities of outstanding researchers: clarity of thought; scientific rigor and tractability; impact; innovation; and originality.

All 45 finalists will receive lifelong membership in the Reaxys Prize Club and be invited to the virtual Reaxys PhD Prize Symposium 2020. This free online event will run from September 30 to October 2. The 3 winners will be chosen and announced on the last day of the Symposium. More details on the event will be announced shortly, but pre-register today to secure your place.
