Chemistry faculty members Dr. Jimmy Mays and Dr. Al Hazari have been inducted into the 2011 class of Fellows of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society.
Also honored are Dr. Diane Grob Schmidt and Dr. Phillip F. Britt, members of Chemistry Board of Visitors.
All 2011 ACS Fellows are honored for their outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and important contributions to ACS. The official list will be published in the August 2011 issues of Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN). And a special ceremony will be held during the ACS National Meeting in Denver on Monday, August 29, 2011.
The Fellows program began in 2009 to recognize and honor ACS members for their outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and the Society. This year’s group, like the first 192 Fellows named in 2010, represents academe, industry and government. Additional information about the program is available here.
