2023 Dalton mid-career Prize: Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Prize Winner
Dr Adrian Chaplin, University of Warwick
Awarded for contributions to organometallic chemistry involving the imaginative use of pincer ligands.
Dr Chaplin’s research is based on molecular compounds of the transition metals and understanding how they can be used in chemical synthesis. His research group are working on the activation and transformation of alkanes and nitrous oxide. These are abundant, but challenging, reagents to use in catalysis in an energy efficient manner. Methane and nitrous oxide are also potent greenhouse gases and their use in chemical manufacture is desirable from a remediation perspective.
