Jonathan W. Steed was born in London, UK in 1969. Heobtained his B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees at University College London,working with Derek Tocher on coordination and organometallicchemistry directed towards inorganic drugs and new metal-mediatedsynthesis methodologies. He graduated in 1993, winning the RamsayMedal for his Ph.D. work. Between 1993 and 1995 he was a NATOpostdoctoral fellow at the University of Alabama and University ofMissouri, working with Jerry Atwood. In 1995 he was appointed as aLecturer at Kings College London and in 1998 he was awarded theRoyal Society of Chemistry Meldola Medal. In 2004 he joined DurhamUniversity where he is currently Professor of Inorganic Chemistry.As well as Supramolecular Chemistry (2000) Professor Steedis co-author of the textbook Core Concepts in SupramolecularChemistry and Nanochemistry (2007) and more than 200 researchpapers. He has published a large number of reviews, book chaptersand popular articles as well as two major edited works, theEncyclopaedia of Supramolecular Chemistry (2004) andOrganic Nanostructures (2008). He has been an AssociateEditor of New Journal of Chemistry since 2001 and is therecipient of the Vice Chancellor's Award for Excellence inPostgraduate Teaching (2006). His interests are in supramolecularsensing and molecular materials chemistry.
Jerry L. Atwood was born in Springfield MO, USA in 1942.He attended Southwest Missouri State University, where he obtainedhis B.S. degree in 1964. He carried out graduate research withGalen Stuckey at the University of Illinois, where he obtained hisPh.D. in 1968. He was immediately appointed as an AssistantProfessor at the University of Alabama, where he rose throughAssociate Professor (1972) to full Professor in 1978. In 1994 hewas appointed Professor and Chair at the University of Missouri- Columbia. Professor Atwood is the author of more than 600scientific publications. His research interests revolve around anumber of themes in supramolecular chemistry including gas storageand separation and the control of confi ned space. He has alsoworked on the self-assembly of noncovalent capsules, liquidclathrate chemistry, anion binding and fundamental solid stateinteractions, and is a world-renown crystallographer. He co-foundedthe journals Supramolecular Chemistry (1992) and Journalof Inclusion Phenomena (1983). He has edited an enormous rangeof seminal works in supramolecular chemistry including the five-volume series Inclusion Compounds (1984 and 1991) and the11-volume Comprehensive Supramolecular Chemistry (1996). In2000 he was awarded the Izatt-Christensen Prize in SupramolecularChemistry.
