Thomson Reuters Web of Science Announced the 2012 Thomson Reuters Citation Laureates

     Recently, Thomson Reuters Announced the 2012 Thomson Reuters Citation Laureates, the most cited reviews, and key reports in their official website.

Masatake Haruta from Tokyo Metropolitan University, Japan was awarded the prize for his dedication in the field of gold catalysis. John Emsley praise his work highly, evaluated him “the Grand Old Man” and pointed out that “Did Masatake Haruta, then at Japan’s Government Industrial Research Institute, realize that he was opening a Pandora’s box of delights, not troubles, when he revealed his research on the oxidation of CO to CO2 by means of a gold catalyst?  That was in 1985, and the paper appeared in Abstracts of Papers of the American Chemical Society; this reference to his work has never been cited (see the accompanying table, paper #1). Although his discovery appeared to go unnoticed at the time, today Haruta is fêted as the grand old man of gold catalysis, with thousands of citations to his work.”
