Arthur C. Cope Award: Eric N. Jacobsen

by Linda Wang
January 11, 2016 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 94, ISSUE 2

Sponsor: Arthur C. Cope Fund

Citation: For his contributions, both fundamental and practical, to the fields of asymmetric catalysis and organic ­synthesis.

Current position: Sheldon Emery Professor of Chemistry, Harvard University

Education: B.S., chemistry, New York University; Ph.D., chemistry, University of California, Berkeley

Jacobsen on his current scientific goals:“I am very excited about connecting the worlds of small-molecule and enzymatic catalysis in meaningful ways. I hope to discover small, synthetic ­catalysts that use enzymatic principles to do reactions that have thus far not been possible.”

What his colleagues say: “Jacobsen’s catalyst systems have been used widely in industry and academia, and the underlying concepts he has elucidated now serve to guide research throughout the world.”—Stephen L. Buchwald, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
