N1 - Funding Information: Charlotte K. Williams University of Oxford Editorial Advisory Board, Organometallics and Inorganic Chemistry Charlotte Williams (born in 1975) is Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Oxford, leading a team working on polymerization catalysis, polymer chemistry, and nano-particle synthesis with an emphasis on learning how to use renewable resources to make useful new polymers. Professor Williams obtained her B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Imperial College London, working with Professor Vernon Gibson and Professor Nicholas Long on ethene polymerization catalysis. She subsequently worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Minnesota with William Tolman and Marc Hillmyer on zinc catalysts for lactide polymerization, followed by work at the University of Cambridge with Professor Andrew Holmes and Professor Richard Friend on organometallic polymers for electronics. Professor Williams started her independent career in 2003 at Imperial College London as Head of Materials Chemistry before joining the faculty at Oxford in 2016. Her research has been recognized by the 2018 Otto Roelen Medal from DECHEMA, the 2017 Sir John Meurig Thomas Medal by the UK Catalysis Hub, and the 2016 Corday Morgan Medal from the Royal Society of Chemistry, among other awards.

With these complexes, the Meyer group seeks out novel coordination modes and unusual electronic structures and, consequently, enhanced reactivity toward small molecules such as O2, H2O, and CO2. Professor Meyer received his diploma in 1995 at Ruhr University Bochum and his Ph.D. in 1998 at the Max Planck Institute in Mülheim/Ruhr, working on high-valent transition-metal nitrido complexes under the direction of Professor Karl Wieghardt. He then conducted postdoctoral studies in the laboratory of Professor Christopher Cummins at Massachusetts Institute of Technology before joining the faculty of the University of California, San Diego, in 2001. In 2006, he accepted an offer as Professor at FAU. Among his awards and honors, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2011 and, in 2017, received the Elhuyar-Goldschmidt Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry of Spain, the Ludwig-Mond Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the Chugaev Commemorative Medal from the Russian Academy of Sciences.

She continued her studies at Technical University Dortmund, receiving her Ph.D. degree in 2009 working with Professor Carsten Strohmann on lithium organic compounds. She then joined the research group of Professor Don Tilley at the University of California, Berkeley, as a postdoctoral fellow, followed by postdoctoral work with Holger Braunschweig at the University of Würzburg. Professor Daschlein-Gessner̈ began her independent career at Würzburg, where she completed her Habilitation in 2015. She is now Chair of Inorganic Chemistry at Ruhr University Bochum. Her work has been recognized by several grants and awards, including a 2010 IUPAC Prize for Junior Scientists and an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship. Professor Däschlein-Gessner’s research interests involve intriguing main-group and transition-metal carbon-centered ligand systems, such as meth-andiides, carbenoids, and ylidic compounds, that exhibit versatile functionalities and unusual chemical and electronic properties for bond activation and catalytic applications.

He held research fellowships at the Max Planck Institute for Kohlenforschung with Alois Fürstner and ETH Zürich with Peter Seeberger before being appointed Alfred Werner Assistant Professor at ETH Zürich in 2008. In 2012, Professor Gilmour moved to Westfalischë Wilhelms University Münster, where he currently is Chair of Organic Chemistry and CiM Professor of Chemical Biology. Among his recognitions, he received the 2002 Organon Prize for Biological Chemistry and in 2015 was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Professor Gilmour and his group concentrate on exploiting physical organic principles to design novel materials with predictable conformational behavior and/or reactivities, utilizing enantioselective organocatalysis, fluorine chemistry, preparative glycochemistry, and carbohydrate mimesis.
