Peter Gölitz has been the Editor of Angewandte Chemie since 1982. He joined the publishers in 1980 after he earned his PhD in organic chemistry from the Universität Göttingen (Germany) with Armin de Meijere in 1978 and spent time as a postdoc at IBM in San José, CA (USA) and the Universität Hamburg (Germany). He is the Founding Editor of Advanced Materials, Chemistry—A European Journal, ChemPhysChem, Chemistry—An Asian Journal, and ChemCatChem, among others. He received an honorary doctorate from the Universität Basel (Switzerland, 2011), and medals from the German and French Chemical Societies (2000 and 2005).
Neville Compton (Deputy Editor) obtained his PhD from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne (UK) working with Nick Norman and John Errington on transition-metal bismuth chemistry. In 1990, he went to the Universität Heidelberg to do postdoctoral research with Gottfried Huttner and then joined the publishers in 1992. He became Deputy Editor of Angewandte Chemie and Chemistry—A European Journal in 1997, and subsequently Editor of the latter in 2002, and of ChemPlusChem in 2012. He worked with the EUCheMS publication ethics committee on the Ethical Guidelines for Publication in Journals and Reviews.
Haymo Ross (Deputy Editor) studied chemistry at the Technische Universität Braunschweig and the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, where he obtained his PhD in organic chemistry in the group of Ulrich Lüning in 1997. In the same year he started at Wiley-VCH in the editorial team of Angewandte Chemie. He became Deputy Editor in 2000 and temporarily (2001–2003) acted as Journal Manager of Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis. He is also the Editor of the European Journal of Organic Chemistry (since 2003) and Co-Editor of ChemistryOpen (since 2011).
Jens Ackermann (Sr) studied chemistry at the Universität Heidelberg and conducted PhD research at the Universities of Heidelberg and Göttingen under the supervision of Franc Meyer on biomimetic copper coordination compounds with relevance to catechol oxidase. He joined the editorial team of Angewandte Chemie in 2004.
Conor Doss studied biology at Oberlin College, USA. He then obtained his PhD in Chemical Biology in 2014 from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor under the supervision of Anna K. Mapp. Conor joined the editorial team of Angewandte Chemie in August 2015.
Jonathan Faiz (Sr) studied at the University of Oxford, where he carried out his Part II research with Harry L. Anderson. He obtained his PhD (supervised by Zoe Pikramenou) from the University of Birmingham in 2005. After postdoctoral research in Birmingham and with Jean-Pierre Sauvage at the Université Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg, he joined the editorial team of Angewandte Chemie in 2008.
Tamaryin Godinho studied natural sciences with a focus on chemistry at the University of Cambridge, where she went on to obtain an M.Sci after working on combinatorial biosynthesis in the group of Jonathan Spencer. She earned her PhD in the field of molecular medicine under the supervision of Christopher Baum at the Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, and joined Angewandte Chemie in 2013.
Nicole Harrington-Frost studied chemistry at the University of Auckland (New Zealand) and obtained her PhD in 2000 from the University of Nottingham (UK) for research on radical cyclization reactions to form polycyclic compounds and synthetic studies towards amphidinolide B under the supervision of Gerald Pattenden. Following postdoctoral research with Paul Knochel at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Germany), she joined the editorial team of Angewandte Chemie in December 2002.
Stephen Horner (Sr) received his BSc and MSc (Hons) at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, where he also completed his PhD in Chemistry in 1998. Subsequent to DAAD postdoctoral studies at the Universität Stuttgart, Germany, he continued his research there until 2007, when he began working for Angewandte Chemie.
Volker Jacob (Sr)
Frank Maaß (Sr) studied chemistry at the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany, where he also completed his PhD in atmospheric chemistry in 1999 under the supervision of Horst Elias. He joined the publishers in 2000.
Kim Meyer studied chemistry at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. In 2010 she completed her PhD under the supervision of L. James Wright studying homogeneous organometallic catalysts with N-heterocyclic carbene and pyridine carboxamide ligand architectures. Subsequently, Kim worked as a Senior Analyst in New Zealand's largest commercial water monitoring laboratory, Watercare Laboratory Services, before moving to Switzerland and taking up a postdoctoral researcher role with Jeroen A. van Bokhoven at the ETH Zürich in 2013. Kim joined Angewandte Chemie as an Assistant Editor in 2016.
Mario Müller (Web, Sr) studied chemistry at Technische Universität Berlin, where he obtained his PhD in 2000 for work on ferroelectric chiral liquid crystals under the guidance of Gerd Heppke. He briefly worked for Dieter Ziessow on a chemistry e-learning project and joined the publishers in 2000.
Guy N. Richardson (Sr) studied chemistry at the University of Bristol, where he obtained his PhD under the supervision of Selby Knox on organometallic ruthenium chemistry. He carried out postdoctoral work in Heinrich Vahrenkamp's group at the Universität Freiburg (Germany) on mixed-valence complexes and then moved to David Cole-Hamilton's group at the University of St. Andrews to work on homogenous catalysis. He joined Angewandte Chemie in 2000.
Rachel Schmidt-Radde (Sr) studied chemistry at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and gained her PhD in 1989 at the University of California at Berkeley for research on benzenoid hydrocarbons and organometallic complexes under the direction of Peter Vollhardt. After postdoctoral studies at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg in the group of Heinz Staab, she joined the editorial team at Angewandte Chemie in 1991.
Diane Smith (Sr) completed her PhD with J. Fraser Stoddart at Sheffield University (UK) in 1992 for studies on macropolycycles.
