2012 ACS Fellows

Society honors 96 members for their contributions to science and the profession

July 23, 2012 | A version of this story appeared in Volume 90, Issue 30

The American Chemical Society has named 96 members as ACS Fellows. The new fellows will be honored at the society’s fall national meeting in Philadelphia this August, in a ceremony hosted by ACS Immediate Past-President Nancy B. Jackson.

“ACS is especially proud to honor these chemists, who have given so much to the community and the profession,” said Jackson in announcing the 2012 class of ACS Fellows. “They are leaders whose work is having a lasting beneficial impact, not just on science but also on the ACS community.” Their contributions include outstanding and creative scientific research, superior achievements in the teaching and learning of chemistry, managerial excellence, and volunteer service through meetings and communication with the public, she noted.

The fellows program began in 2009 as a way to recognize and honor ACS members for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and ACS.

Nominations for the 2013 class of ACS Fellows will open in the first quarter of the year. Additional information about the program, including a list of fellows named in earlier years, is available at
