Buck-Whitney Award

Buck-Whitney Award – Eastern New York ACS

The Eastern New York section of the American Chemical Society (ENYACS) presents the Buck-Whitney Medal to recognize original work in pure or applied chemistry.

This award honors two of the section's deceased members, Johannes S. Buck, former Associate Research Director of the former Sterling-Winthrop Research Institute and, Willis R. Whitney, the first Director of the General Electric Research Laboratory. The nominee must have made outstanding contributions to chemistry and be a resident of North America. We are interested primarily in identifying a chemist whose work has not yet received a significant national or international award, and whose career will be advanced by such recognition. 

The awardee will be presented with a bronze medal and citation, an honorarium of $1000, and a travel grant to attend the Buck-Whitney Symposium at NERM 2019. The awardee must be available to give the award address at NERM 2019 on Tuesday, June 25th, 2019. The nominee's work can be in either experimental or theoretical aspects of any field of pure or applied chemistry. 

Nominations are closed for the Buck-Whitney Award. Winner will be announced.
