ACS Award for Nuclear Chemistry

Sponsored by the ACS Division of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology.

Purpose: To recognize and encourage research in nuclear and radiochemistry or their applications.

Nature: The award consists of $3,000 and a certificate. Traveling expenses to the meeting at which the award will be presented will be paid.

Establishment and Support: The award is currently financed by the ACS Division of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology. The award was supported by funds from a gift to the Society by an anonymous donor during 199091 and in odd-numbered years from 198085; the award was sponsored by EG&G ORTEC during the intervening even-numbered years. Sponsorship was assumed by Amersham Corporation for 198689. A predecessor award, the ACS Award for Nuclear Applications in Chemistry, was established in 1953 by Nuclear-Chicago Corporation, a subsidiary of G. D. Searle & Co.

Rules of Eligibility: A nominee must have made outstanding contributions to nuclear or radiochemistry or to their applications. There are no limits on age or on nationality.

The Internet is a wonderful vanity press. It is a bully pulpit that costs the author of a website almost nothing. Therefore, it falls on the reader to exercise increased vigilence while browsing websites because the the layers of "editors" and "publishers" have been removed from the information transfer process and so that anybody can say most anything without regard for the facts or truth. This website is no exception. For that reason, I have tried to provide copies of enough of the original materials so that the reader can make his or her own interpretations of the source documents that led me to the conclusions expressed here.
