Thomson Reuters released data identifying the world's top 100 chemists over the past 10 years as ranked by the impact of their published research. The top 100 is intended to celebrate the achievements of chemists who achieved the highest citation impact scores for chemistry papers (articles and reviews) published since January 2000. Thomson Reuters published the table in support of the International Year of Chemistry.

Dr. Barbas has published 95 chemistry papers with 8,029 citations, resulting in a citation impact score of 84.52. He is one of 70 authors whose national affiliation is with the U.S.

Dr. Barbas earned his Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and Physics from Eckerd College in 1985. He was recognized for excellence in organic chemistry in the summer of 2009 when he was awarded an Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award from the American Chemical Society. A year later, Eckerd awarded Dr. Barbas an honorary doctorate of science for his "exceptional creativity and pioneering studies in organic chemistry and the application of organic chemistry to chemical biology."
