Jun‐ichi Yoshida, Emeritus at Kyoto University, Japan, passed away on September 14, 2019. Yoshida's research focused on synthetic organic chemistry. His research interests included integrated organic synthesis based on the control of reactive intermediates, the electrochemistry of organic compounds, organometallic reactions, and microreactors.

Jun-ichi Yoshida was born on November 13, 1952. He studied chemistry at Kyoto University, where he received his Ph.D. in 1982 under the supervision of Makoto Kumada. He then was a postdoctoral researcher with Barry M. Trost at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, USA. Yoshida served as Assistant Professor at the Kyoto Institute of Technology, Japan, until 1985. He then moved to Osaka City University, Japan, as Assistant  Professor and was promoted to Associate Professor in 1992. From 1994 until his retirement in 2018, he was Professor of Organic Chemistry at Kyoto University.

Among other honors, Yoshida received the Progress Award in Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Japan, in 1987, the Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ) Award for Creative Work in 2001, the Nagoya Silver Medal in 2006, and the Humboldt Research Award in 2007.
