The Nagoya Medal of Organic Chemistry has been awarded to Professor Eric Jacobsen, Harvard University, Massachusetts, USA (pictured, left). The Gold Award is presented annually to a chemist who has made a significant and original contribution to the field of organic chemistry. Jacobsen receives this award in recognition of his work on asymmetric catalysis with chiral hydrogen-bond donors and in particular, the development of a two-step procedure for the resolution of terminal epoxides through the hydrolytic resolution reaction.
