2016 Cooperative Research Nominations

Posted on March 30, 2015 at 12:40 AM

Nominations are invited for the Division of Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering’s Cooperative Research Award in Polymer Science and Engineering Sponsored by the Eastman Kodak Company. The Division believes that this award is unique, relevant and timely to today’s research environment. It is given to recognize and encourage sustained cooperative research between industrial and academic or industrial and national laboratory scientists. The cooperative research must be of significant importance to polymer science and technology.

Nominations for the 2016 award will be accepted until August 15, 2015.

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.
