2015 ACS Award in Polymer Chemistry winner annouced

Posted on February 10, 2015 at 9:00 PM

Congratulations to Nikos Hadjichristidis, winner of the 2015 American Chemical Society Award in Polymer Science.

Nikos Hadjichristidis, Professor of Chemical Sciences at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia, has envisioned and created unique macromolecular architectures that were not synthetically accessible before.   The well-defined nature of the polymers that Prof. Hadjichristidis creates using living anionic polymerization and validates using multiple methods enable definitive studies of the morphology and properties of topologically and compositionally complex polymers, making him a treasured collaborator in the polymer physics community.
