TitleOllis, William David: certificate of election to the Royal Society
DescriptionCitation typed
CitationDistinguished for his structural investigations of natural products and phytochemistry, and for his contributions to other areas of organic chemistry. He has made extensive use of both physical and chemical methods in the discovery of new families of natural products, the neoflavenoids, the biflavonyls, and structural variants of the isoflavenoids. His work on fungal metabolites has disclosed new classes of pseudo-peptide antibiotics and the anthracyclinones.
He has contributed notably to the practical recognition of meso-ionic compounds as a general class of heterocycles. Applications of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to the investigation of conformational and rotameric change in macrocyclic compounds are leading to a general examination of transition states produced by bond rotation processes.
