Organometallics Distinguished Author Award Lectureship
The annual Organometallics Distinguished Author Award recognizes the author of exceptional articles that are published in Organometallics. An article that emphasizes advance organometallic chemistry, profoundly impacts on organic and inorganic chemistry, and exhibits creativity and originality will be favorably reviewed.
Sponsorship of the Award:
The award is sponsored by Organometallics, the ACS Division of Organic Chemistry, and the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry.
Nature of the Award:
The awardee will receive an 1) an award plaque, 2) an honorarium of US $2,000, and 3) travel funds to attend and present at the ACS Fall National Meeting.
- Nominated articles must have been published in Organometallics within the current or previous calendar years.
- Self-nominations and nominations of work authored by Organometallics Editors will not be accepted.
- Co-authors are eligible to submit nominations.
- Preference will be given to faculty and other investigators who are in the early phases of their independent careers.
