(1916 - 1980)
E.C. Kooyman, 1916 - 1980 at the Album Academicum of the University of Amsterdam
Eduard C. Kooyman was born in 1916. He obtained the Ph.D. degree at the University of Amsterdam under Professor Wibaut in 1946, having joined the Royal Dutch/Shell Laboratories two years previously. He spent a year at California Institute of Technology as an Institute of International Education Fellow in 1947/48, working on immunochemistry with Professors Pauling and Campbell. At the Shell Laboratories in Amsterdam he was in charge of the fundamental organic and biological work from 1949 through 1958, when he was appointed Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Leiden. He served as a Reilly Lecturer at Notre Dame in the early spring of 1960 and has made several lecturing tours through the United States.
His main chemical interests are reaction mechanisms and synthetic methods, particularly in the field of hydrocarbons. Most of his present work involves oxidations and aromatic substitutions, both in the liquid and in the vapor phase.
