Vadim A. Soloshonok

Vadim A. Soloshonok graduated from Kiev State University in 1983
and received his Ph.D. in 1987 from the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences
(thesis director: Academician V.P. Kukhar’). He continued his education
in the area of asymmetric synthesis in collaboration with Professors Y.
Belokon’ (Moscow, USSR, 1987-1990), P. Bravo (Milan, Italy, 1993),
T.Hayashi (Sapporo, Japan 1994-1995) and V. Hruby (Tucson, USA,
1998-2000). In 1987 he joined the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry,
Kiev, Ukraine, where he has been working until 1995. From 1995 through
1999 he was Senior Researcher at the National Industrial Research Institute,
Nagoya, Japan and from 2001 to 2010 Professor of Chemistry at the University
of Oklahoma, USA. Currently he is the Ikerbasque Research Professor at the
University of Basque Country, Sun Sebastian, Spain, EU and the Visiting Professor
at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, NY, USA. He is currently serving
as a member of the international advisory editorial board of the Journal of Fluorine
Chemistry (2003- present), Synthesis Field Editor of Amino Acids (2009- present),
Past-Chair of the ACS Fluorine Division, (2010); author of over 280 research papers,
11 book chapters, and 10 patents, and editor of 13 books/Special Issues of many
International Journals. His publications have generated over 11,000 citations
with a h-index of 64. Since 2005 has been invited to give more than 180 Keynote
Lectures and Invited Talks at international meetings, universities and industry.
His major current research interests are: fluorine chemistry, asymmetric synthesis
of alpha- and beta-amino acids and Self-Disproportionation of Enantiomers.

Prof. Dolbier

Prof. Dolbier is currently the Col. Allen R. and Margaret G. Crow Professor of
Chemistry at the University of Florida. He received a B.S. in Chemistry from Stetson
University and a Ph. D. in organic chemistry from Cornell University, working with
Mel Goldstein. After one and a half years of postdoctoral work with Bill Doering at
Yale, he joined the faculty at UF in 1966, where he has been ever since, serving as
Chairman from 1983 to 1988. Bill’s research interests are focused mainly on the study
of molecules containing fluorine. Although retaining a strong interest in structure-reactivity
relationships, in recent years, his efforts have increasingly been devoted to development
of new synthetic methods in organofluorine chemistry. He has published more than 265
papers and is an inventor on thirteen U.S. patents. Bill received the ACS award for Creative
Work in Fluorine Chemistry in 2000, and is currently the North American editor of the Journal
of Fluorine Chemistry.
