Willem Verboom's Biography

Willem Verboom, Professor, University of Twente

Willem Verboom was born in 1954 in Goes, The Netherlands. He studied chemistry at Utrecht University where he also received his PhD with Prof. Dr. H.J.T. Bos with a thesis entitled “Thermal and photochemical rearrangements of g-oxo-a,b-unsaturated carboxamides and esters”. Subsequently he joined the group of Prof. Dr .Ir. D.N. Reinhoudt at the University of Twente, where he now is an associate professor in organic chemistry. Over the years the research interests moved form heterocyclic chemistry to supramolecular chemistry. His present research topics involve the application of suitable molecular building blocks, in particular calixarenes and cavitands, for the development of specific receptors and larger (non-)covalent assemblies and recently, chemistry in microchips. He is the (co-)author of about 275 scientific publications. He served as a board member of the International Society of Heterocyclic Chemistry in the period 1992-1995. He was a member of the editorial board of the Dutch journal “Recl. Trav. Chim. Pays-Bas (1992-1996). He is a member of the refereeing panel of several journals of the Royal Chemical Society (UK). Since 2001 he is secretary of the “Design and Synthesis study group” of the Dutch National Science Foundation (CW-NWO).

Inner wall-functionalized microreactors, containing a single layer of an organic acid catalyst, catalyst-bearing polymer brushes, or dendrimer-encapsulated nanoparticles, are very effective for appropriate catalyzed reactions.
