About the awardee - Corey R. J. Stephenson

   Corey R. J. Stephenson

Corey R. J. Stephenson began his independent career at Boston University as an Assistant Professor in 2007 and since July 2013 is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Michigan. His research group focuses on catalysis, natural product synthesis and continuous flow chemistry where visible light mediated photoredox catalysis is the major theme interconnecting these areas of research.



About the reagent -

Ruthenium(II), Tris(2,2′-bipyridine-κN1,κN1′)-, (OC-6-11)-

A complex that was introduced long ago, it has enjoyed a renaissance in the past 5 years as a photoredox catalyst. By harnessing the energy of visible light, it allows a variety of organic transformations including cycloadditions, alkylations, halogenations, reductions, cyclizations and ring-openings to occur under mild conditions.

The article on the Award winning reagent by Laura Furst and Corey Stephenson was published in EROS in September 2012.

2013 Winning Reagent - Methyl (E)-4-Phenyl-2-diazo-3-butenoate


Methyl (E)-4-phenyl-2-diazo-3-butenoate is widely used as a carbenoid precursor for cyclopropanations, as reagent in CH insertion reactions, in reactions involving Ylides, in CH activation reactions, in Tandem CH Activation/Cope Rearrangements (CH/Cope), and other related transformations. The article on the Award winning reagent by Huw Davies Research Group was published in EROS in March 2011.

Huw M. L. Davies, the winner of the EROS Best Reagent Award 2013, has been at Emory University as the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Chemistry since 2008. His research emphasizes the development of new enantioselective synthetic methods, a major current theme is catalytic asymmetric C -H activation by means of rhodium-carbenoid induced C -H insertion. Many research groups have used his chiral dirhodium catalysts.

2011 Winning Reagent - Lithium Dichloro(1-methylethyl)-magnesate


Aldrich Catalog: 656984; CAS: 807329-97-1  

Discovered in 2004, the reagent is also known under the names Isopropylmagnesium Chloride–Lithium Chloride complex or Turbo-Grignard™. Since then it has found a wide range of elegant applications in laboratory syntheses and has been up-scaled for industrial processes. The article on the Award winning reagent by Paul Knochel and Andrei Gavryushin was published in EROS in October 2010.

Paul Knochel, the winner of the EROS Best Reagent Award 2011, interests include the development of novel organometallic reagents and methods for use in organic synthesis, asymmetric catalysis and natural product synthesis.

About the EROS Best Reagent Award


Sponsored by Aldrich® Chemistry and John Wiley & Sons, the EROS Best Reagent Award was created to honour the work of the authors to the online edition of Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis [EROS and e-EROS]. Updated every year with 200 – 300 new or updated articles, these contributions from carefully selected synthetic chemists ensure that this collection of reagents and catalysts remains a primary source of information for chemists at the bench.

About EROS

EROS is the authoritative reference source on reagents and catalysts, enabling you to quickly find the most suitable reagent for performing a particular reaction.

► Originating in print

The Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis (EROS) first published as an 8 Volume Print Edition in 1995, edited under Professor Leo Paquette it featured around 3,000 articles describing key properties and applications of the most useful reagents and catalysts. The 2nd Edition published in 2009 offering over 50,000 reactions and 4,000 reagents and catalysts.

► Developed and evolved into a regularly updating online database

In 2001 the online version, e-EROS, was launched with a set of online tools for advance structure and reaction searching. These tools were developed in close cooperation with InfoChem in Munich, Germany. e-EROS offers a variety of searching options to mirror the way chemists think, including: Search by: CAS numbers or InChI’s or InChI Keys, Reagent Name, Reaction Name, Catalyst Name, Solvent Name, and more. Regularly updated, every year the Editors add around 200 new or revised articles, so that e-EROS continues to be a reliable source for the latest information on reagents and catalysts.
