2017 Call for Nominations

Chemistry of Materials
Lectureship and Best Paper Award

NOMINATION DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 20, 2017

Sponsored by Chemistry of Materials, the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry,
and the ACS Division of Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering

Chemistry of Materials is delighted to invite nominations for its inaugural Chemistry of Materials Lectureship and Best Paper Award. This award will honor the authors of one article published in an issue of Chemistry of Materials in the year preceding the nomination deadline and will go to an article of outstanding influence in the field of materials chemistry as a whole. It will recognize the fact that research is a team endeavor and celebrate the importance of co-authors and their contributions.

A half-day symposium will honor the recipients each year and will feature two award presentations -- one each by two co-authors of the winning article -- as well as talks by several invited speakers. The symposium will be hosted alternately by the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry and the ACS Division of Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering.

The inaugural lectureship will take place at the 2017 Fall ACS National Meeting in Washington, D.C., August 20-24, 2017, and will be hosted by the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry.

The authors of the winning article will receive the following to share:

  • An award plaque
  • An honorarium of US$2,500
  • Travel and accommodations funding of up to a total of US$2,000 for up to two co-authors to attend the 2017 Fall ACS National Meeting and the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry symposium in their honor

Eligibility:

  • The nominated article must have been published in an issue of Chemistry of Materials in the year preceding the nomination deadline.
  • The nominated article must be original and forward-looking, and describe groundbreaking research focused on one or more of the following areas: organometallic chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, solid-state materials, coordination chemistry, nanoscience.
  • The article's corresponding author (group leader/principal investigator) must be within the first 12 years of an independent research career.

If you have questions, please send them to ChemMater@acs.org.
