Lecture: Prof. Edward I. Solomon, Stanford Univ.f23bd06eac19042a71a836ade1cf6241Edward I. Solomon grew up in North Miami Beach, Florida, received his Ph.D. at Princeton (1972) and was a postdoctoral fellow at The Ørsted Institute in Denmark and at Caltech. He started his career at MIT in late 1975, became a full professor in 1981, and joined the faculty at Stanford in 1982 where he is now the Monroe E. Spaght Professor of Humanities and Sciences and Professor of Photon Science at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. He has been a visiting professor in France, Argentina, Japan, China, India, Australia and Brazil. He has received ACS National Awards in Inorganic Chemistry, Distinguished Service in the Advancement of Inorganic Chemistry, the Alfred Bader Award in Bioinorganic or Bioorganic Chemistry, the Ira Remsen Award, and the Kosolapoff Award, the Pittsburgh Specstroscopy Award from Pittcon, the Centenary Medal from the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK), the Wheland Medal from the University of Chicago, the Bailar Medal from the University of Illinois, the Frontiers in Biological Chemistry Award from the Max-Planck-Institute (Mülheim), the Chakravorty Award from the Chemical Research Society of India and the Dean’s Award for Distinguished Teaching at Stanford among others. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and of the American Chemical Society. Professor Solomon’s research is in the fields of Physical-Inorganic, Bioinorganic, and Theoretical- Inorganic Chemistry. His focus is on spectroscopic elucidation of the electronic structure of transition metal complexes and its contribution to reactivity. He has developed new spectroscopic and electronic structure methods and applied these to active sites in catalysis. He has made significant contributions to our understanding of metal sites involved in electron transfer, in copper sites involved in O2 binding, activation and reduction to water, in structure/function correlations over non-heme iron enzymes, and in extending concepts from biological to heterogeneous catalysis.473 Hutchison Hallfalse15106068000002017-11-13T16:00:0015106104000002017-11-13T17:00:00Invited Lectures2017/11/activating-metal-sites-for-biological-electron-transfer.htmlfalseOnceDepartment Gathering & Fall Awardsf2c4db33ac19042a71a836ad40f53150Douglass Feldman Ballroom (2nd Floor)false15096402000002017-11-02T12:30:0015096474000002017-11-02T14:30:00Department Events2017/11/fall-awards-2017.htmlfalseOnceInorganic Seminar: Prof. Ian Tonks, Univ. of Minnesota82654e2dac19042a1507b5d7d367ff8a"Ti-Catalyzed Nitrene Transfer Reactions"473 Hutchison Hallfalse15100020000002017-11-06T16:00:0015100056000002017-11-06T17:00:00Seminars2017/11/inorganic-seminar-ti-catalyzed-nitrene-transfer-reactions.htmlfalseOnceCANCELLED Colloquia: Prof. Jacques-E.
