Anthony J. Arduengo, III is presently the Saxon Professor of Chemistry at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. He completed his B.Sc.in chemistry cum laude at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1974 and his Ph.D. two years later from the same institution. His independent research career began in DuPont's CRD and he has moved several times during his career between academics and industry. He has held positions with the University of Illinois, DuPont, the Technical University – Braunschweig, Germany, and the University of Alabama. Research activities in his group focus broadly in the area of compounds with unusual valency. His present research programs include efforts directed toward chemical hydrogen storage, materials for nonlinear optical applications, and organic photovoltaics.
