2023 ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry Early Career Industrial Investigator Award

Congratulations to William Morris (NuMat Technologies, Inc.), the recipient of the 2023 ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry Early Career Industrial Investigator Award. This award recognizes William’s research on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and the application of these materials in some of the first commercial MOF-enabled products. These products include ION-X® adsorbents used in the manufacture of semiconductors and Sentinel™️ adsorbents used in personal protective equipment.

Inorganic Chemistry Student Travel Award

The Division of Inorganic Chemistry is calling for nominations to the DIC Student Travel Award Program for the spring ACS National Meeting. The deadline for nominations is on February 1st 2023. See information below or follow this link for more information:
The DIC is accepting applications for student travel awards for graduate and undergraduate students presenting research talks or posters at ACS National Meetings. The amount of the award is $450.00. The deadline for receipt of applications is February 1st for the Spring ACS National Meeting. Awardees will be notified by March 1st.

Selection process: Applications submitted by undergraduate researchers, graduate students in the first two years of their PhD and graduate students in the final years of their PhD will be reviewed separately. Within each category, the selection process will be based on scientific merit. Preference will be given to applicants who have not been awarded a Student Travel Award previously.
The student must be a member of the DIC and must present their paper in the DIC program. Students who are not making presentations are ineligible.
Only one nomination will be accepted per research group for each meeting. Exceptions may be granted for collaborative projects.
Application Procedure:
Fill in the application survey (survey link here). Please make sure to complete it in its entirety. Incomplete applications will not receive consideration. Note that you will be requested to provide evidence of the following:
