Prestigious Honor from the Swiss Chemical Society for Armido Studer

Prof. Armido Studer from the Organic Chemistry Institute at the University of Münster has been awarded the "Paracelsus Prize" by the Swiss Chemical Society. The award, which is worth 20,000 Swiss francs (a good 20,700 euros) and a gold medal, is granted every two years to scientists who have carried out outstanding scientific research in chemistry at an international level. Armido Studer is being honoured for his work in the field of radical chemistry. The award ceremony will take place in Bern in September 2024.

Armido Studer uses radical pathways to synthesise molecules, some of which are suitable for natural product synthesis. He also conducts research in the field of environmentally friendly tin-free radical chemistry and has made a name for himself among experts by developing synthetic applications of the free radical "TEMPO" and related nitroxides. His research topics also include the chemistry of carbon radicals, new approaches to the generation of silicon and nitrogen-centred radicals, the use of the electron as a catalyst, water activation and the functionalisation of heteroarenes. Armido Studer is a member of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts and the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina.
