CATL Division Awards Nomination

Exceptional Achievements in Catalysis

This award will recognize excellence in scientific and professional leadership and service in catalysis science and technology by an individual. The nominees for this award are expected to have demonstrated pioneering research accomplishments in the design or synthesis of catalysts and/or chemical or mechanistic characterization of catalysts leading to recognized advancements in our understanding and application of catalysis. The award will emphasize the impact of a researcher’s work in the broad field of catalytic chemistry and catalytic materials or molecules. Preference is given to nominations that highlight work that has not received national recognition in the past. The nominee’s impact in the field through service and professional leadership should also be highlighted. The nominee must also have been a member of the ACS Catalysis Science and Technology division for a two-year period preceding their nomination. The award will be granted regardless of race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, presence of disabilities, and educational background.

Nominations for the award are due 30 November 2023. The nomination should include:

● A nomination letter emphasizing the nominee’s achievements relevant to the nomination [1000 words]

● Two letters seconding the nomination [500 words]

● The nominee’s CV [5 pages]

● A complete list of scholarly work relevant to the nomination

● At least one letter writer must be a member of the ACS Division of Catalysis Science and Technology (CATL)

The award will be presented annually at the Fall meeting of the ACS at a special session of the ACS Division of Catalysis Science and Technology. The awardee will receive $1,000 as honorarium and up to $1,500 in travel support.

All nomination packages (collated in a single PDF file) should be sent by email to Prof. William Schneider (wschneider@nd.edu), Chair, ACS Catalysis Science and Technology Division.


Early Career in Catalysis

This award will recognize and encourage accomplishments and innovation of unusual merit by an individual in early stages of their career. A nominee must have received their Ph.D. since January 1, 2014 (requests for extensions in consideration of exceptional life events can be addressed to the Division prior to award submission). A nominee must also have been a member of the ACS Catalysis Science and Technology division for a two-year period preceding their nomination. Creativity and impact of the researcher in the early stages of their independent career along with service to the catalysis community will be the primary criteria for the award. The award will be granted regardless of race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, presence of disabilities, and educational background.
