Prof. Brian Hoffman (Northwestern University) was awarded the Joseph Chatt award for his major contributions to the development and application of ENDOR spectroscopy for elucidating mechanisms of catalysis by metalloenzymes.
Prof. Douglas Stephan (University of Toronto) was awarded the Ludwig Mond award for his innovative work on early-late heterobimetallics, phosphorus chemistry and polymerization catalysis.
Dr. Michael Ingleson (University of Manchester) was awarded the Harrison Meldola prize for his innovative work in borocation chemistry, particularly the borylation of arenes.
