The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters announced on September 25th its “2014 Citation Laureates,” a list of candidates considered likely to win the Nobel Prize in the fields of physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, and economics. The annual Thomson Reuters Citation Laureates are recognized in perpetuity as contenders for a Nobel Prize.

 

Distinguished Professor Ryong Ryoo of the Department of Chemistry, KAIST, was nominated for the 2014 Thomson Reuters Citation Laureates in Chemistry. He was the first Korean scientist who has made the list. In addition to Professor Ryoo, seven other scientists were selected as possible contenders for the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, or in the future.

 

Professor Ryoo was named alongside Charles T. Kresge, Chief Technology Officer of Saudi Aramco, Dhahran, and Galen D. Stucky, Professor of the Department Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California, Santa Barbara, for their research on the design of functional mesoporous materials. For details, please visit http://sciencewatch.com/nobel/2014-predictions/chemistry-laureates. Mesoporous materials have high surface areas with narrow pore-sized distribution and tunable pores diameters, offering promising properties and applications in various areas including adsorption, separation, sensing, and catalysis.

 

Professor Ryoo has focused his research interest in the synthesis of new functional nanoporous materials such as hierarchical zeolites, mesoporous silicas, carbons, and organic-inorganic composite materials that can be used for advanced applications in the production of alternative energy sources and in green chemical processes.

 

According to the press release by the Thomson Reuters, the list of the 2014 Nobel predictions includes 27 researchers representing 27 distinct academic and research organizations across nine different countries.

 

The annual Thomson Reuters Citation Laureates study is based on the analysis of proprietary data from the research and citation database, identifying the most influential researchers in the categories of chemistry, physics, physiology or medicine, and economics. Since its inception in 2002, the study has accurately forecasted 35 Nobel Prize winners.

 

Korea had high hopes for Professor Ryoo to be the first Korean who wins a Nobel Prize in science and engineering, but much to Koreans’ regret, he did not win this year. Nonetheless, Professor Ryoo is considered a strong contender for the prize in chemistry next year and onwards, who has garnered 21,141 citations in his research on the design of functional mesoporous materials.
