Daniel L. Reger, Carolina Distinguished Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, is the recipient of the 2013 Southern Chemist Award sponsored by the ACS Memphis Section. The award is given annually to honor outstanding researchers who have brought recognition to the South by their activities and accomplishments.
Reger’s research interests include the synthesis of third-generation poly(pyrazolyl)methane and poly(pyrazolyl)borate ligands and ligands containing aromatic groups that form strong π-π stacking interactions, as well as the preparation of metal complexes of these ligands that have unusual magnetic and structural properties.
Nominations are being sought for the 2014 Southern Chemist Award. Nominees should be U.S. citizens, have worked in the South at least 10 years, and have at least a 10-year record of accomplishment. In addition, nominees must have actively participated in ACS events and brought recognition to the South through their work.
Nominations should consist of a letter containing biographical details and a brief account of the nominee’s technical accomplishments, curriculum vitae, publication and patent list, list of ACS activities, and two seconding letters from persons not at the nominee’s place of employment.
