Paul Chirik To Lead Organometallics
Chirik says his vision for the journal is to “continue its position of excellence as the flagship publication in the field.”
His research focuses on the discovery of new reactions for the functionalization of atmospheric nitrogen.
Chirik earned a B.S. in chemistry from Virginia Tech in 1995, received a Ph.D. in chemistry from California Institute of Technology in 2000, and completed a postdoc at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2001. He has served as an associate editor for Catalysis Science & Technology as well as on the editorial advisory boards for Inorganic Chemistry and Organometallics.
“Dr. Chirik’s breadth of scientific interests, his strong leadership skills, and his editorial experience will ensure Organometallics continues to innovate and expand into multidisciplinary areas,” says Susan King, senior vice president of the Journals Publishing Group at ACS, which also publishes C&EN.
