Björn C. G. Söderberg is Professor of Chemistry at the West Virginia University. Professor Söderberg received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Colorado State University working with Professor Louis S. Hegedus. He started his academic career at University of South Alabama in 1990, and joined the West Virginia University chemistry faculty in 1994. Professor Söderberg’s research focuses on the discovery of new organic reactions catalyzed or mediated by organometallic complexes. He was one of the main contributors to the development of palladium-catalyzed cyclization reactions of nitroaromatic compound leading to nitrogen-containing heterocycles. Professor Söderberg has also contributed to the discovery of new reactions of Fischer carbene complexes.
