About the Author

Matthias Beller, born in 1962, studied chemistry at the University of Göttingen, Germany, where he completed his doctoral thesis in 1989 in the group of Prof. L.-F. Tietze. As recipient of a Liebig scholarship from the Association of the German Chemical Industry, he then spent a postdoctoral fellowship in the group of Prof. K. Barry Sharpless at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, USA. From 1991 to 1995, Beller joined the Hoechst AG, where he most recently directed the "Homogeneous Catalysis" project. At the beginning of 1996 he moved to the Technical University of Munich as Professor for Inorganic Chemistry. 1998, he relocated to the University of Rostock to head the Leibniz Institute for Organic Catalysis (IfOK) and to occupy a chair in catalysis. Matthias Beller is a member of the board of Dechema's Catalysis Section, the German Catalysis Competence Network ("ConNeCat") as well as the Innovationsagentur Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. He is also a member of the Association for Technical Sciences of the Union of German Academies of Sciences and Humanities.

Carsten Bolm was born in Braunschweig in 1960. He studied chemistry at the TU Braunschweig (Germany) and at the University of Wisconsin, Madison (USA). In 1987 he obtained his doctorate with Professor Reetz in Marburg (Germany). After postdoctoral training with Professor Sharpless at MIT, Cambridge (USA), Carsten Bolm worked in Basel (Switzerland) with Professor Giese to obtain his habilitation. In 1993 he became Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Marburg (Germany), and since 1996 he has a chair of Organic Chemistry at the RWTH Aachen (Germany). His awards include the Heinz-Maier-Leibnitz prize, the ADUC-Jahrespreis for habilitands, the annual prize for Chemistry of the Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Göttingen, the Otto-Klung prize, and the Otto-Bayer award. He held visiting professorships at the Universities in Madison (US), Paris (France), Florence (Italy), Milano (Italy) , and Namur (Belgium), and he was fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).
