第11回 PCCP Prize受賞者が決定しました

2017年2月10日

Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC; 英国王立化学会) が発行する学術誌PCCP (Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics) では"PCCP Prize"を設けており、RSCの協力依頼に応じ本会では2007年から毎年、数名の受賞候補者推薦を行い、春季年会会期中にRSCと合同で表彰式を行っています。
本年も受賞候補者を「化学と工業」誌ならびに本会Webで公募するとともに、日本化学会の21のディビジョンに対して、受賞にふさわしい候補者の推薦を依頼致しました。
過日「PCCP Prize選考委員会」を開催し、ディビジョンから推薦された25件の受賞応募書類に基づき、研究課題、業績結果、成果の発表状況などを評価項目として慎重かつ厳正に審査を行いました。その結果、第11回受賞者を下記3名とすることを内定し、2月6日開催の第633回理事会において承認されましたので以下の通り御報告致します。

♦Artificial Regulation and Imitation of Living Systems based on Supramolecular Coordination Chemistry

◊ 錯体化学・有機金属化学ディビジョン推薦

Life is one of the most complicated systems on the earth. To understand the living system, scientists have devoted their efforts in two different ways: (i) to control the living systems by chemicals and/or (ii) to imitate the living systems. So far, I have challenged development of novel chemical approaches based on supramolecular coordination chemistry to achieve the control and imitation of the living system: (1) On-cell coordination chemistry to allosterically control the activities of membrane-bound receptors; (2) self-sorted supramolecular nanofibers; (3) porous crystalline materials with multiple molecular binding sites. My achievements would provide the effective ways not only to understand the living system, but also to realize novel chemical technologies, such as therapeutics, diagnosis, and intelligent biomimetics....

♦Direct Imaging Study of Gas-phase Ultrafast Molecular Dynamics using a Newly Developed Space-slice Ion Imaging Technique

◊ 物理化学ディビジョン推薦

Visualization of ultrafast molecular dynamics is one of the ultimate purposes in physical chemistry because it leads to deep understanding of dynamic properties of molecules. A time-resolved (pump-probe) charged particle imaging for gas-phase molecules is one of the powerful approaches for such a purpose. However, there have been. ... (続きを読む)

♦Theoretical Study on the Lanthanide Chemistry: Structural Fluctuation, Catalytic Ability, and Luminescence

◊ 理論化学・情報化学・計算化学ディビジョン推薦

【1】Lewis acid catalysts in aqueous media
Catalytic reactions in aqueous media are drawing much attention as a type of green chemistry for the next generation. Though the first report on the aqueous reaction
catalyzed by Ln complex, called the Kobayashi-modification of the Mukaiyama-Aldol (MA) reaction, was published 20 years before, there are unsolved questions concerning the role of the water. One question is why the stereoselectivity of this reaction depends on the solvent. In the case of conventional catalytic systems, which have rigid structures, only a few TSs of stereo-determining step need to be computed to solve this question. In the case of Ln catalytic systems, however, the coordination structure around Ln is very flexible and there could be a large number of TSs. ... (続きを読む)
