Professor Nikos Hadjichristidis has won the 2015 ACS Award in Polymer Chemistry for his seminal contributions to the use of living anionic polymerization in the design/synthesis of well-defined polymers and to the understanding of macromolecular architecture-property relationships.
Sponsored by ExxonMobil Chemical Company this award recognizes outstanding fundamental contributions and achievements in the field of Polymer Chemistry.
nominees for this award are expected to have demonstrated pioneering
research accomplishments in synthetic methods of unique polymeric
materials and/or achieved profound discoveries in polymer physical
chemistry leading to recognized advancements in our understanding of
complex macromolecular behavior. This award is specifically intended to
acknowledge the impact in basic science of a researcher’s body of work
in the broad field of polymer chemistry on our global needs for advanced
polymeric systems and materials.
