The ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry and Organometallics are proud to announce the winners of the inaugural Organometallics Senior and Young Investigator Fellowships for outstanding research in the field of organometallic chemistry.
The Fellows will speak at a symposium in their honor at the fall ACS National Meeting, August 10-14, 2014 in San Francisco, California.
Senior Investigator Fellow:
Richard R. Schrock, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was selected as Organometallics Senior Investigator Fellow for his impactful research and outstanding record of accomplishments. Dr. Schrock’s research interests include the development of high oxidation state early metal complexes for use in olefin metathesis reactions, as well as the catalytic reduction of dinitrogen by molybdenum complexes under ambient conditions. His work has been recognized with numerous awards, including the ACS Award in Organometallic Chemistry, the ACS Award in Inorganic Chemistry, the ACS Cope Scholar Award, the F. Albert Cotton Award in Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry and the 2005 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

The ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry are proud to announce Jeffrey Long, University of California, Berkeley, as the winner of the second Inorganic Chemistry Lectureship Award.
Dr. Long was nominated by his peers for his creativity, impactful research and record of accomplishments in the field of inorganic chemistry. He will be presented with an award at a symposium in his honor at the fall ACS National Meeting, August 10-14, 2014 in San Francisco, CA.Dr. Long’s research interests focus on the development of new single-molecule magnets, porous coordination solids and metal-organic frameworks for myriad applications, as well as robust proton reduction catalysts. His work has been recognized with numerous awards including the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award, the Wilson Prize, the TR100 Award, the Phi Lambda Upsilon National Fresenius Award, and the National Science Foundation Special Creativity Award.
The Editor-in-Chief of Organometallics, the Division of Inorganic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society, and the Division of Organic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society are seeking nominations for the OrganometallicsYoung Investigator and Senior Investigator Fellowships. The objective is to honor individuals who have had a major impact on scientific research in organometallic chemistry.
The ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry are proud to announce Christopher (Kit) Cummins, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as the winner of the inaugural Inorganic Chemistry Lectureship Award. Dr. Cummins was nominated by his peers for his creativity, rigor and record of research success in the field of inorganic chemistry. He will be presented with an award at a symposium in his honor at the fall ACS National Meeting, September 8-12, 2013 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
