Jan Schutz, Speaker at Catalysis Conference
Jan Schutz
DSM Nutritional Products, Switzerland


Jan Schütz studied in his diploma thesis at Stanford University in the group of Prof. R. Waymouth the synthesis and self-assembly of micellar block copolymers and their use as novel catalytic media. In his PhD thesis he investigated the synthesis and application of N-heterocyclic carbene metal complexes in catalysis in the group of Prof. W. A. Herrmnann at the Technical University of Munich. During his PostDoc at DSM Nutritional Products in the group of Dr. W. Bonrath he studied solid bases in aldol condensations to intermediates of vitamins. Since 2006 he is lab head at DSM Nutritional Products, Process Research in catalysis and organic synthesis of vitamins, nutraceuticals, and aroma ingredients. Special focus is on steroid chemistry, such as vitamin D3 and derivatives and in heterogeneous catalysis with focus on gas phase reactions.
