American Chemical Society names Fellows for 2014

WASHINGTON, July 16, 2014 — The American Chemical Society (ACS) has named the 2014 class of ACS Fellows, which includes 99 scientists who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and made important contributions to ACS, the world’s largest scientific society. They represent a wide range of disciplines and geographic locations, from 30 of the Society’s technical divisions, 57 local sections and 23 national committees.

The 2014 Fellows will be recognized at the ACS Fellows Ceremony and Reception on Monday, August 11, 2014, during the Society’s 248th National Meeting & Exposition in San Francisco. At the ceremony, which will be held 2-4:30 p.m. at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, Grand Ballroom B, each Fellow will receive a lapel pin and a certificate.

“The scientists selected as this year’s class of ACS fellows are truly a dedicated group,” said ACS President Tom Barton, Ph.D. “Their outstanding contributions to advancing chemistry through service to the Society are many. In their quest to improve people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry, they are helping us to fulfill the vision of the American Chemical Society.”

The ACS Fellows Program was created by the ACS Board of Directors in December 2008 “to recognize members of ACS for outstanding achievements in and contributions to Science, the Profession and the Society.”
