The KCS-Wiley Young Chemist Awards are presented annually by the Korean Chemical Society (KCS) and John Wiley & Sons. They are awarded to two Korean scientists under the age of 40 for outstanding achievements and contributions to the community.

This year, the awards were presented to Jungwon Park (pictured left), Seoul National University, South Korea, and Kwang Seob Jeong (pictured right), Korea University, Seoul, South Korea, at the 128th General Meeting of the Korean Chemical Society in Busan, South Korea, on October 14, 2021.

Jungwon Park
studied chemistry at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), South Korea, and at the University of California, Berkeley, USA, where he received his Ph.D. in 2012. After postdoctoral research with David A. Weitz at Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA, and a year as a Research Associate at Harvard University, Park joined the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), Seoul, as an Associated Researcher. He became Assistant Professor at Seoul National University in 2016 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2020.

Park's research interests include the physical chemistry of soft and inorganic materials, structure analysis of individual molecules, phase transitions, colloidal nanoparticles, and liquid-phase/in-situ transmission electron microscopy.

Kwang Seob Jeong
studied chemistry at Korea University and at the Pennsylvania State University, University Park, USA, where he received his Ph.D. in 2013. After postdoctoral research at the University of Chicago, IL, USA, with Philippe
Guyot-Sionnest, Jeong joined Korea University as Assistant Professor in 2015. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2019.

Jeong's research focuses on the development and characterization of novel functional nanomaterials, in particular, colloidal quantum nanomaterials emitters.
