Congratulations to our ACS Fellows!

The ACS Fellows Program was created by the Board of Directors in December 2008 “to recognize members of the American Chemical Society for outstanding achievements in and contributions to Science, the Profession, and the Society”. The honor of a Fellow designation is bestowed on ACS members who have achieved excellence in two defined areas – scientific/professional accomplishments and service to the ACS.

********

For 2016, only one Southern California Section member was named an ACS Fellow. We would like to congratulate:

Richard B. Kaner
University of California, Los Angeles

Prof. Kaner was recognized for the synthesis and applications of new materials, including the world’s hardest metals; conducting polymer membranes for water purification; and graphene-based energy storage devices. He has served as an advisor for the past 12 years to the UCLA ACS Student Chapter and made substantial contributions to outreach programs for high school students and their teachers.

The fellows program began in 2009 as a way to recognize and honor ACS members for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and ACS. Prof. Kaner certainly epitomizes those standards. We offer our sincere congratulations to him and all the ACS Fellows.
