Award for Nuclear Chemistry
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 1990–91 and in odd-numbered years from 1980–85; the award was
sponsored by EG&G ORTEC during the intervening even-numbered years.
Sponsorship was assumed by Amersham Corporation for 1986–89. 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.
