ACS Award in Industrial Chemistry

This award was established in 1989 by Akzo Chemicals, Inc., to recognize outstanding contributions to chemical research in the industrial context. Significant creative contribution to chemistry in any field of chemical, chemical engineering, pharmaceutical, or biochemical research is appropriate, and any chemical researcher whose primary employer was industrial when the work was done, and who was based in North America, is eligible.

Akzo Chemicals, Inc. sponsored the award through 2000, and ACS ACS financed the award in 2001 and 2002. The award was supported by the ACS Division of Business Development and Management (BMGT) since 2003; in partnership with SOCMA from 2007-2010 and in partnership with the Division of Industrial & Engineering Chemistry (I&EC) from 2011-2013. Starting in 2015, I&EC has been the sole sponsor of this award.

The award consists of $5,000, a certificate, and travel expenses to the ACS national meeting at which the award is presented. A symposium in the winner's area of research is usually programmed by the relevant technical division.
