CHEM School Research Action of the Year 2022

The research act of the year is awarded to Eduardo Anaya-Plaza and Dr. Sandra Kaabel based on their successful transition from a senior postdoc to junior PI (Marie Curie PD, Academy of Finland Research Fellow).​ <br/><br/>The researchers have carried out excellent collaboration and a shared paper: A Greener Route to Blue: Solid-State Synthesis of Phthalocyanines in Angewandte Chemie - International Edition. 61, 42, 7 p., e202209033.​ <br/><br/>The excellence and impact of the paper has been immediately recognized by the community: the paper is in the top 5% of all research outputs scored by Altmetric and the paper was selected as a cover picture. ​The researchers have been invited to prepare a review to ChemPlusChem, and a highlight in Synthetic Letters​. Eduardo was also invited to submit Young Researcher profile in Angewandte Chemie International Edition (​). <br/><br/>Both have also actively contributed to the department level activities and course teaching, not to mention the extensive supervision tasks and building up international collaboration networks (e.g. with Technical University of München and University of Barcelona). Eduardo’s and Sandra’s cooperation is a true example of bottom-up research that stems from coffee room discussions, where a group of people with diverse backgrounds get together, discuss science, form a group, execute the work, and finally get exciting results.
