He then was a commissioned officer in the United Sates Public Health Service, studying photochemical smog in the New York City metropolitan area. He attended Northwestern University where he received his PhD in chemistry under the direction of James A. Ibers in 1974. He then joined DuPont’s Central Research Department at the Experimental Station in Wilmington, Delaware. He is married with two children.
Additional recommended knowledge
Ittel is best known for his contributions to organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. He discovered fluxional processes in both diamagnetic and paramagnetic π-allyl organometallic complexes bearing M-H-C agostic interactions and was responsible for a series of C-H activation reactions. He contributed to DuPont’s technology for cobalt-catalyzed chain transfer in acrylic radical polymerization. As a manager at DuPont, he directed the work of almost 100 DuPont scientists, including DuPont’s effort on Versipol® post-metallocene catalysts for ethylene coordination polymerization and copolymerization. Ittel coauthored the definitive textbook on “Homogeneous Catalysis” with George Parshall and his work is recorded in 136 citations in Chemical Abstracts.
Ittel practices the art of bonsai and has displayed trees at Longwood Gardens and the Brandywine River Museum. He maintains a website on North American Bonsai Potters.
