Dauenhauer among winners of 2019 ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering Lectureship Awards

Sept. 4, 2018 - Associate Professor Paul Dauenhauer is among three winners of the 2019 ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering Lectureship Awards. These awards recognize the research contributions of scientists working in green chemistry, green engineering, and sustainability in the chemical enterprise and who have completed their academic training within the past 10 years. Lectureship award winners are selected for three regions: The Americas, Europe/Middle East/Africa, and Asia/Pacific.

Dauenhauer was selected for advancing the molecular understanding of complex reaction systems including biomass pyrolysis and biobased chemicals such as p-xylene and oleo–furan surfactants via novel reactors and analytical techniques. Professor Silva Vignolini of the University of Cambridge (Cambridge, United Kingdom), was selected for her contributions to the fabrication of biomimetic structures based on assemblies of natural materials within living organisms. Professor Kevin C. W. Wu of National Taiwan University (Taipei, Taiwan) was sekected for his contributions in sustainable nanoporous materials for heterogeneous catalysts, energy devices, and biomass conversion.

The winners will be recognized at an I&EC/CELL symposium in their honor at the 257th ACS National Meeting in Orlando, Florida, March 31–April 4, 2019.
