Former Stoddart Group Postdoctoral Researcher Chenfeng Ke, currently an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Dartmouth College, has been named the winner of the 2020 Cram Lehn Pedersen Prize in Supramolecular Chemistry. Chenfeng’s award winning research focuses on developing supramolecular 3D printing materials and hydrogen-bonded crosslinked organic frameworks.
Chenfeng is the third former Stoddart Group member to pick up the coveted CLP Award, joining Amar Flood of Indiana University and Ivan Aprahamian, Chenfeng’s colleague at Dartmouth. The Stoddart Group has also had a long history of collaboration with some of the other CLP Award winners, including Rafal Klajn of Weizmann Institute, Oren Scherman and Jonathan Nitschke of the University of Cambridge UK, and last year’s CLP Winner Xiaopeng Li of the University of South Florida.
The Cram Lehn Pedersen Prize, named in honor of the winners of the 1987 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, recognizes significant, original and independent work in the area of supramolecular chemistry. The CLP Prize is sponsored by Chemical Communications, a leading publisher of supramolecular chemistry research and supporter of young scientists.
