DOC Inaugural (2009) 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." Unlike ACS national awards, the distinguished honor of a Fellows designation will go to those who have distinguished themselves in multiple areas, including promoting the science, the profession, and service to the American Chemical Society. Ultimately, the body of Fellows is intended to reach approximately 1-2% of ACS membership. The following 43 members of the Division of Organic Chemistry were selected as Inaugural ACS Fellows.
