Sijbren Otto wins prestigious Royal Society of Chemistry Award

08 May 2018

University of Groningen Professor of Systems Chemistry Sijbren Otto is the 2018 recipient of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) Supramolecular Chemistry Award. This biennial award is in recognition of Otto’s contribution to the science of molecular networks and systems chemistry. The main theme of his current work is chemical evolution. As recipient of the award, Otto will give a number of lectures in Britain.

‘I feel very honoured to receive this award’, says Otto. ‘It is nice to receive such recognition from my colleagues.’ Each year, the Royal Society of Chemistry presents awards to a number of chemists in a range of fields. ‘Previous winners of the Supramolecular Chemistry Award are leading scientists in the field, so it is great to be on that same list.’ The award, which will be presented later this year, includes a medal, £ 2000and a lecture tour.
