Department: ACS News

CHRISTIAN DECKER, director of research at the National Center for Scientific Research, in Strasbourg, France, is the recipient of the 2009 Roy W. Tess Award in Coatings. The award is given annually by the ACS Division of Polymeric Materials: Science & Engineering and recognizes outstanding achievements in coatings science, technology, and engineering. Decker will receive a plaque and $3,000 cash prize during the ACS fall national meeting in Washington, D.C.

Decker is one of the world’s leaders in the area of radiation-induced reactions in polymeric materials. His research interests are ultrafast light-induced polymerizations, the synthesis and characterization of ultraviolet-cured coatings and nanocomposite materials, photostabilization of polymers, and laser-assisted chemical processing of polymers.

Nominations are being sought for the 2010 Tess Award. Scientists from all sectors of industry, government, and academia are eligible to apply and should forward nominations to Theodore Provder, Tess Award Chairman, 5645A Emerald Ridge Pkwy., Solon, OH 44139. Upon receipt of names, Provder will provide a form requesting information on the nominee relevant to patents, publications, and overall qualifications.
