December 21, 2006 Announcement of the Winners of the “2007 Mitsui Chemicals Catalysis Science Award” Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. (MCI) hereby announces the winners of the “2007 Mitsui Chemicals Catalysis Science Award.” This award was established in 2004 with the aim of contributing to the sustainable development of chemistry and chemical industry, having been established to recognize researchers who have made outstanding achievements in catalysis science. The first winners were honored in March, 2005. The Winners of the “2007 Mitsui Chemicals Catalysis Science Award” Chief Scientist Zhaomin Hou (Age: 44)* RIKEN “Development of Polymerization Reactions Based on New Organo Rare Earth Metal Catalysts” Professor Gregory C. Fu (Age: 42)* Massachusetts Institute of Technology “Coupling Reactions and Asymmetric Synthesis Based on Novel Catalyst Designs” Dr. Zhaomin Hou has discovered the regio-, stereoselective polymerization and copolymerization of a wide range of olefins and dienes by use of new organo rare earth metal catalysts, thereby opening up the path to new polymer materials. Dr. Gregory C. Fu developed new designs for chiral catalysts that are based on planar-chiral asymmetry, and he greatly expanded the scope of coupling reactions. The Winners of the “2007 Mitsui Chemicals Catalysis Science Award of Encouragement” Assistant Professor Jun Terao (Age: 35)* Osaka University “Carbon Bond Formation Reactions Using Anionic Transition Metal Complexes as the
