2010 ACS Fellows

Society honors 192 members in the second year of its fellows program

August 2, 2010 | A version of this story appeared in Volume 88, Issue 31

“Whether it’s making new materials, finding cures for disease, or developing energy alternatives, these fellows are scientific leaders, improving our lives through the transforming power of chemistry,” said ACS President Joseph S. Francisco in announcing the 2010 class of ACS Fellows. “They are also consummate volunteers who contribute tirelessly to the community and the profession.”

The 192 new ACS Fellows will be honored at the society’s fall national meeting in Boston later this month. The members of this class represent well the breadth of the discipline: 33 of ACS’s 34 technical divisions are represented. And 79 of its 189 local sections are represented.

The fellows program began in 2009 to recognize and honor ACS members for their outstanding achievements in and contributions to the science, the profession, and service to the society. This year’s group members, like the first 163 ACS Fellows named in 2009, represent academe, industry, and government. Additional information about the program is available at
