Chemistry Professor Named ACS Fellow

Jul. 16, 2014

Chemistry professor Pradip Bhowmik has been named a 2014 Fellow of the American Chemical Society (ACS). Those selected have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and made important contributions to ACS, the world's largest scientific society. They represent a wide range of disciplines and geographic locations, from 30 of the Society’s technical divisions, 57 local sections, and 23 national committees.

This year 99 members were awarded this honor by ACS in recognition for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and the society. New Fellows will be presented with an official certificate and a lapel pin at the ACS Fellows Ceremony and Reception during the Society’s 248th National Meeting & Exposition in August.

“The scientists selected as this year’s class of ACS fellows are truly a dedicated group,” said ACS President Tom Barton. “Their outstanding contributions to advancing chemistry through service to the Society are many. In their quest to improve people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry, they are helping us to fulfill the vision of the American Chemical Society.”

This year’s ACS Fellows were formally announced in July 14 issue of Chemical & Engineering News.

The ACS Fellows Program was created by the ACS Board of Directors in December 2008 to recognize members of ACS for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and the society.
