The Patai - Rappoport Lecture celebrates the vision of Saul Patai and Zvi Rappoport in creating and advancing the book series The Chemistry of Functional Groups, providing chemists with a highly valuable tool for advancing their research. Founded in 1964, the series has grown to over 150 volumes with 1750 chapters on a wide range of functional groups and compound classes, contributed by expert authors from more than 50 countries. The current chief editor of the series is Professor Ilan Marek. The Patai – Rappoport Lecture is supported by John Wiley & Sons.
John Wiley & Sons is glad to again support the 2023 Patai-Rappoport Lecture Award with US$ 2,500.
Professor Matthew Sigman (University of Utah) is the recipient of the 2023’s Patai-Rappoport Lecture Award for his major contributions in physical organic chemistry, data science and enantioselective catalysis.
