2002 AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN CATALYSIS
Presented by The Catalysis Society of Metropolitan New York
REQUEST FOR NOMINATIONS
The Catalysis Society of Metropolitan New York is seeking nominations for its twenty-first annual “Award for Excellence in Catalysis.” The award, sponsored by ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company, consists of a plaque and a $1,200 gift. It is granted to an individual or a research team from North America to recognize outstanding contributions in either applied or basic research in either homogeneous or heterogeneous catalysis. Particular effort is made to identify worthy individuals or teams who have not received sufficient recognition for their work.
This award will bring due recognition to the recipient(s), and we appreciate your help in seeking first-rate candidates. We especially need to fortify our active nomination list! Nominations are solicited from anyone who is currently, or has been previously, active in the field of catalysis. Nominations previously submitted as well as new ones will remain active for a period of three years.
Those wishing to submit a nomination should write a letter of recommendation for the individual nominee or team, including pertinent biographical information and a specific description of the impact of the nominee’s achievements in catalysis. The maximum length of the letter should be no more than two pages. It may be accompanied by copies of no more than two items presenting important documentation, such as papers or patents.
Deadline for receipt of nominations is January 18, 2002.
