History

The ACS National Awards begin administering this award in 2018 through the establishment and support of the Henry H. Storch Endowment. This award has a long history starting in 1964 when the Fuel Chemistry Division (with the help of the ACS Pittsburgh Local Section) established it to honor Henry H. Storch a physical chemist who made numerous contributions to coal chemistry and catalysis and was the director of research at the U.S. Bureau of Mines.

The award was given by the Fuel Chemistry Division unit until it became an ACS National Award sponsored by Exxon from 1987-1995. The Fuel Chemistry Division sponsored the award from 1996-2011 ( co-sponsored by Elsevier from 1998-2010). The Division of Energy and Fuels (ENFL) sponsored the award from 2012-2018.
