About the Thieme–IUPAC Prize

The Thieme–IUPAC Prize is presented every two years on the occasion of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry – International Conference on Organic Synthesis (IUPAC–ICOS).

Sponsored jointly by Georg Thieme Verlag, IUPAC, and the editors of SYNLETT, SYNTHESIS, Science of Synthesis, and Houben–Weyl, 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 is given 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 January 1 of the year in which the prize is awarded
