Professor Aede de Groot received his MSc in Organic Chemistry and technical Chemistry in 1964 from the University of Groningen in The Netherlands and his Ph D in Organic Chemistry in 1967 under the direction of Prof. dr. Hans Wijnberg, also in Groningen.
He was a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. dr. E.E. van Tamelen where he had his first training in the synthesis of natural products.
From 1969 -1971 he gained industrial experience at the Dutch State Mines (DSM) on electro-organic synthesis, and after that he was an assistant professor at the Technical University of Eindhoven.
In 1972 he was appointed as professor in Bio-organic chemistry at the Wageningen Agricultural University.
