Professor Ryoji Noyori

Professor Noyori is a former Member of the Editorial Board of Science of Synthesis and was one of the founders of Science of Synthesis

Professor Ryoji Noyori won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2001. He shared half of the prize with William S. Knowles for the study of chirally catalyzed hydrogenations. The other half went to K. Barry Sharpless for his work on chirally catalyzed oxidation reactions.

He is a strong advocate of Science of Synthesis and has said:

"Today's scientific community must struggle to find ways to effectively distill massive floods of information into real knowledge. Science of Synthesis does this superbly well with carefully selected content on synthetic organic chemistry that has been written and edited by leading authorities from around the world. Science of Synthesis is a must-have for all universities and research institutions involved in material synthesis."

Professor Noyori participated in a Thieme video interview (as did Professor Sharpless) on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Houben-Weyl in 2009 and described the aims of the Science of Synthesis project in detail.
