Dear Alan KATRITZKY Family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy over the lost of an exceptional scientist. I was a grad student in UF in 1991 and had the fortune of interacting with Dr.KATRITZKY.

My thanks go to all of you, who have sent such warm and meaningful messages.
I am very grateful for so much caring and friendship, as for having been able to share with Alan so many years and to have met, together with him, so many special and inspiring people.
Alan's wish, to go on working all his life, came true and to the very end he was still occupied with plans and projects.
His Group is now dissolved and dispersed, but a room will still be kept in the University of...

To Linda and family,

I am greatly saddened to hear of the death of Alan, an exceptional scientist, teacher and human being. In his chosen field, heterocyclic chemistry, Alan was truly the Lord of the Rings and benzotriazole was the one ring that ruled them all. I had the privilege of getting to know him during my 6 years at UF (1997-2003), where I worked as a post-doc for Professors Steven Benner and Nigel Richards. Our science has lost a true titan.

Dear Linde,

Sarah and I were sad to hear this news. I first saw Alan discussing his research at the Woodward seminar at Harvard in the early 1960s while I was a graduate student, and the year spent with Alan in Norwich as a postdoc helped shape my subsequent career. Later we were fortunate to visit you in Gainesville.

You have our sympathy and best wishes,
Tom and Sarah Tidwell
