Elsevier announces winners of Reaxys PhD Prize 2020 -

Elsevier, a global research publishing and information analytics provider, has announced the winners of the 2020 Reaxys PhD Prize at the 10th anniversary Reaxys PhD Prize Symposium, held for the first time as a virtual event.

The event and prize celebrate outstanding research by ambitious PhD students from across the globe, recognising the most innovative and rigorous research in chemistry and associated sciences. Over the past decade, the Reaxys PhD Prize has received over 4,000 submissions from over 50 countries.

In 2020, 45 finalists were selected from over 400 submissions. Eleven were shortlisted to present their research and be considered for the prize. The three equally ranked Reaxys PhD Prize 2020 winners are: Dr. Keiichi Yano for presenting Supramolecular polymerization in liquid crystalline media; Dr. Jianchun Wang for presenting Designing new norbenene cocatalysts for palladium/norbenene catalysis; and Rupert Proctor for presenting Development of catalytic enantioselective Minisci-type reactions.

Each award winner received a prize of USD $2,000 and, together with the other finalists, will become part of a private network of 450 talented chemists from around the world, the Reaxys Prize Club.

In addition to the shortlisted finalists’ talks, the virtual Reaxys PhD Prize Symposium included a thought-provoking keynote presentation from Professor Bruce Lipshutz of the University of California Santa Barbara, who focused on the potential for greener reaction chemistry, as well as fascinating talks from Advisory Board members Professor Cristina Nevado and Professor Li-Zhu Wu, who both talked about their most recent work.

The Reaxys PhD Prize Symposium registration will remain open, so that anyone can access the talks from the event, view the posters and listen to the final pitches from 2020’s finalists.
