Organometallics welcomes new editor-in-chief: Paul Chirik, Ph.D.

Washington, DC | Posted on July 22nd, 2014

Chirik will succeed Editor-in-Chief John Gladysz, Ph.D., who has served in this position since 2010 and will retire from the journal at the end of 2014. Organometallics records progress in one of the most active fields for organometallic, inorganic, organic and materials chemists.

"My vision for the journal is to continue its position of excellence as the flagship publication in the field and also to capture the growth and new multidisciplinary chemistry moving forward," Chirik says.

Chirik got his start at Virginia Tech, where he earned his B.S. in chemistry in 1995. For his Ph.D., he went on to the California Institute of Technology. He then became a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 2001, he joined the faculty at Cornell University, where he stayed for 10 years. And in 2011, he moved to his current institution, Princeton University.

The research group he leads focuses on solving long-standing problems in chemical synthesis. For example, they are working on developing catalysts using earth-abundant elements, focusing on more environmentally benign syntheses.

"We are delighted to welcome Dr. Chirik in his new role as editor-in-chief of Organometallics," says Susan King, Ph.D., senior vice president of ACS Publications. "Dr. Chirik has been an active supporter of ACS Publications through his authorship, reviewing activities and Editorial Advisory Board capacity. Dr. Chirik's breadth of scientific interests, his strong leadership skills and his editorial experience will ensure Organometallics continues to innovate and expand into multidisciplinary areas."
