Discovery Chemistry & New Technologies Award


This award has been discontinued.

The Award was administered by the High Throughput Chemistry and New Technologies (HTCNT) Group which is now closed.

The Discovery Chemistry and New Technologies Award recognised outstanding research in synthesis and technology suitable for high-throughput applications particularly in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical and catalysis sector.

2009 winner - Dr David Spring

David was awarded the 2009 Discovery Chemistry and New Technologies award for his pioneering contributions to new synthetic methodology and technology. His studies into organocuprate cross-coupling reactions have extended their scope and application to the synthesis of diverse scaffolds. David has embraced the application of new technologies for the synthesis of small molecule libraries for lead discovery. These efforts have included the development of small molecule microarrays and the use of microwave and flow chemistry.
