The North American Catalysis Society has presented several awards for 2017.

Suljo Linic, a professor of chemical engineering at the University of Michigan, is the recipient of the 2017 Paul H. Emmett Award in Fundamental Catalysis. The award recognizes Linic’s groundbreaking contributions at the interface of heterogeneous catalysis, surface chemistry, nanoscience, and computational catalysis.

Jeffery Bricker,senior director of research at Honeywell UOP, is the recipient of the 2017 Eugene J. Houdry Award in Applied Catalysis. Bricker’s achievements include the discovery of key reaction mechanisms in thiol oxidation chemistry in refinery fuels, which led to the commercialization of an oxidation catalyst that functions in the absence of caustic.
