“We are very excited to honor these outstanding European scientists for their exceptional support of Chemistry Europe and its journals. It is people like these and their wonderful commitment who lay the basis of Chemistry Europe’s success.” says Professor Wolfram Koch, Executive Director of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh, German Chemical Society), and the Chemistry Europe Council Member responsible for the Fellows program. The Chemistry Europe Fellows will be celebrated at a reception during the 8th EuChemS Chemistry Congress in Lisbon on August 29, 2022.
Chemistry Europe publishes 19 high-quality scientific chemistry journals covering a wide range of disciplines, the magazine ChemistryViews, and it supports scientists at every stage of their careers. All this is only possible because many chemists in Europe and the world over are supporting Chemistry Europe in many ways. Some stood out especially and are honored as Chemistry Europe Fellows. Previous notable Chemistry Europe Fellows include the Nobel Laureates Ben Feringa (The Netherlands) and Sir Fraser Stoddart (USA).
