Abstract:
ACS Catalysis and the American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Catalysis Science & Technology are pleased to announce that Suljo Linic, Ph.D., of the University of Michigan has won the 2014 ACS Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science.

Suljo Linic, Ph.D., University of Michigan, wins 2014 ACS Catalysis Lectureship

Washington, DC | Posted on February 3rd, 2014

Linic has made numerous significant advances in the study of catalytic reactions on surfaces and in catalyst design. His accomplishments, both in theoretical and experimental research, have had a major impact in the fields of heterogeneous catalysis, photocatalysis and photoelectrocatalysis.

"Dr. Linic's innovative research into plasmonic metal nanostructures and their photochemical properties has substantially altered our understanding of plasmonic effects in photocatalysis," says Christopher W. Jones, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief of ACS Catalysis. "His studies into the surface electronic structures of metal and metal alloy nanomaterials and their implications for catalytic reactivity have greatly advanced the design of catalysts for reactions such as hydrocarbon steam reforming, selective olefin epoxidation, and the oxygen reduction reaction. Few scientists have made such significant contributions to catalysis at such an early stage of their career. This makes him truly deserving of the award."

The ACS Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science honors current groundbreaking research that enables better understanding of the links among the various subdisciplines of catalysis and also advances the field of catalysis as a whole. The lectureship is co-sponsored by the ACS Division of Catalysis Science & Technology and the ACS Publications journal ACS Catalysis.

The 2014 ACS Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science will be presented at the 2014 ACS Fall National Meeting in San Francisco.

ACS Catalysis publishes original research on heterogeneous catalysis, homogeneous catalysis and biocatalysis. Application coverage includes life sciences, drug discovery & development, household products, polymer discovery & production, environmental protection and energy & fuels. ACS Catalysis won the 2012 AAP PROSE Award for Best New Journal in Science, Technology & Medicine and is highly ranked in impact in Physical Chemistry with a 5.265 first Impact Factor in 2012. The journal also achieved 1,461 total citations as reported in the 2012 Journal Citation Reports® (Thomson Reuters, 2013).

The Catalysis Science and Technology Division was established in 2011 to promote the awareness of the latest research efforts and discoveries in catalysis. The division is very active in organizing and coordinating catalysis symposia at national meetings. Its membership has grown to over one thousand within three years of its establishment.
