Jonas C. Peters Wins 2017 Inorganic Chemistry Lectureship

Jonas C. Peters, Bren Professor of Chemistry at Caltech, is the winner of the 2017 Inorganic Chemistry Lectureship. Inorganic Chemistry and the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry launched the award in 2013 to anually recognize a researcher who has demonstrated creativity and impact in leading research in inorganic chemistry.

"Jonas's research program is both exceptionally productive and creative, and his work is widely respected across the entire inorganic chemistry community as being of the highest quality," says William "Bill" Tolman, Editor-in-Chief of Inorganic Chemistry. "His work is also seen as pushing the boundaries of our understanding of structure, bonding, and catalytic activity of inorganic compounds, particularly ones of relevance to global C, N, and O cycles and energy applications.

"Jonas is also recognized for his training of many successful chemists in top academic institutions," Bill says. "The committee's selection of Jonas to receive the 2017 Inorganic Chemistry Lectureship Award was informed by the combined impact of his research accomplishments, service to the field, and training of students and postdoctoral associates."
