The Division is pleased to announce that Justin G. Kennemur is the winner of the 2010 AkzoNobel Student Award in Applied Polymer Science.  This Award, which is sponsored by AkzoNobeI and administered through the Joint Polymer Education Committee of the ACS Divisions of Polymeric Materials:  Science and Engineering (PMSE) and Polymer Chemistry (POLY), is given for the best paper presented at the AkzoNobel Award Symposium as part of the PMSE program at the 2010 Fall ACS Meeting.

Mr. Kennemur was a graduate student at North Carolina State University where his Ph.D. thesis advisor was Professor Bruce M. Novak.  The title of his paper, which was presented at the recent Fall ACS Meeting in Boston, MA, was “Unique Helical Polycarbodiimides with Reversible Dynamic Properties Based on Arene Substituent Effects”.

The other finalists who presented papers at the Award Symposium were: Deepak Arora (from University of Massachusetts Amherst), Julie Albert (from University of Delaware), Dylan Boday (from University of Arizona), Soyoung Kim (from Northwestern University), and Morgan Stefik (from Cornell University).

The Award, consisting of $1600 and a plaque, will be presented to Mr. Kennemur at the PMSE Awards Reception at the Spring 2011 ACS Meeting in Anaheim, CA.
