Professor Jonathan Nitschke has been awarded the International Izatt-Christensen Award in Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry for 2022.

The prestigious award will be presented to Nitschke at the International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry in Eugene, Oregon in June, where he will also be invited to present his work.

Award co-founder Professor Reed M. Izatt said: “The field has experienced remarkable growth and will continue to produce exciting discoveries in the future. I am sure that Professor Nitschke will continue to be one of the leaders in the field and the recipient of many future recognitions.”

Recognising the long-term team effort which led up to this achievement, Nitschke said: “This award reflects the group's hard work and creativity. I'm very honoured to be a part of the team. This is a slender ray of light in a time of dark tidings.”

Previous recipients of the prize include Professor Jeremy K. M. Sanders of this Department, and Nobel laureates Jean-Pierre Sauvage and Sir J. Fraser Stoddart.
