The Thieme–IUPAC Prize is presented every two years at the IUPAC International Conference on Organic Synthesis (IUPAC–ICOS). The 2012 ICOS will be held 1–6 July in Melbourne, Australia. The prize is awarded to a scientist under 40 years of age whose research has had a major impact in synthetic organic chemistry.
The prize will be awarded on the basis of scientific merit for independent research dealing with synthesis in the broadest context of organic chemistry, including organometallic chemistry, medicinal and biological chemistry, designed molecules, and materials. Candidates must be under 40 years of age as of 1 January in the year in which the prize is awarded.
The Thieme–IUPAC Prize was awarded to Stuart L. Schreiber in 1992, Paul Knochel in 1994, Eric N. Jacobsen in 1996, Andrew G. Myers in 1998, Alois Fürstner in 2000, Erick M. Carreira in 2002, John F. Hartwig in 2004, David W. C. MacMillan in 2006, F. Dean Toste in 2008, and Phil S. Baran in 2010.
Proposals must be accompanied by a biographical sketch of the nominee, a list of the candidate’s 10 most significant publications, and a statement of how the candidate’s research has had a major impact on the field of synthetic organic chemistry. The material should be submitted by e-mail no later than 9 December 2011 to <firstname.lastname@example.org> and will be confidentially forwarded to an independent selection committee.
