Tomoki Ogoshi, Kanazawa University, Japan, has been presented the 2013 Cram Lehn Pedersen Prize in supramolecular chemistry. The award is presented annually in recognition of significant independent work to a researcher who is within 10 years of receiving their Ph.D.
The prize was presented at the 8th International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry, held in Arlington, Virginia, USA, on July 9, 2013.
Tomoki Ogoshi studied at Kyoto University, Japan, where he received his Ph.D. in 2005 for work supervised by Yoshiki Chujo. From 2005–2006, he was a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Research Fellow with Akira Harada at Osaka University, Japan. In 2006, he started his independent career at Kanazawa University, where he is currently Associate Professor.
Ogoshi´s research is focused on the synthesis and applications of pillar[n]arenes; recently, this has included the synthesis of planar chiral - and rotaxanes.
