The current issue of Angewandte Chemie, one of the top journals in the chemistry domain, contains a profile of Jarl Ivar van der Vlugt, assistant professor at the research group for Homogeneous, Supramolecular and Bio-Inspired Catalysis of the Van 't Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences (HIMS).
Jarl Ivar Van der Vlugt has published more than 10 articles in Angewandte Chemie in the last 10 years, most recently on the surprising catalytic activity of a molecular 'nickelaburger'.
In the current edition of Angewandte Chemie Van der Vlugt presents five highlights of his research. The profile also features a few personal details (such as Midnight Oil being Van der Vlugt's favorite band) and characteristic quotes, among them "Young people should study chemistry because there is no life possible without it, but there is a better life possible because of it."
