Aike Nijland

Aike Nijland was born in The Netherlands in 1987, and he obtained his BSc in chemistry in 2010 from the University of Groningen (The Netherlands). After a brief research project at the A. N. Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds in Moscow (Russia) with Professor Yuri N. Belokon on the development of a new class of catalysts, he graduated with an MSc degree in molecular chemistry from the University of Groningen in 2012. He performed his master thesis under the supervision of Professor Syuzanna R. Harutyunyan on asymmetric organocatalysis in alkaloid precursor synthesis and the Origin of Life.

He then worked as a researcher in the Research and Development laboratory of the startup Magpie Polymers (France) as a preparation for the Ph.D. research that he started  with the same company as partner of the SusPhos network in September 2013. He performs his research at the Ecole Polytechnique (France) in the group of Dr. Duncan Carmichael under the co-supervision of Dr. Steven van Zutphen, CEO of Magpie Polymers. His objectives include the development of methods for the facile preparation of novel complex phosphorus containing materials and to study the physical and chemical properties of these materials with an emphasis on their interaction with transition metals. This research takes place at the research facilities of the Ecole Polytechnique and with the laboratory of Magpie Polymers. Having worked there on-site for several months was both a very interesting and enjoyable preparation before starting the academic research. Owing to this auspicious collaboration, he can explore the interface between fundamental research and its commercial implementation to the fullest and thereby contribute to attain a more sustainable use of phosphorus.
