Awards

PEL Associates Awards
In Pure and Applied Polymer Chemistry

Pure Polymer Chemistry

Robert Grubbs has won the PEL Associates Award for the best contributions in pure polymer chemistry in 1995.

The prize is for his work on metathesis polymerization catalysis providing routes to new and novel polymers with significant practical potential.

The Award consists of a check for $150 to the Cal. Tech. Department of Chemistry to be used for books for polymer chemistry students.

Prof. Grubbs was chosen from among several hundred contributors to catalysis research worldwide.


Applied Polymer Chemistry

Robert Langer has won the PEL Associates Award for the best contributions in applied polymer chemistry in 1995.

The prize is for his work in biopolymer research and applications providing key advances in tissue engineering.

The Award consists of a check for $150 to the MIT Department of Chemical Engineering to be used for books for polymer engineering students.

Prof. Langer was chosen from among several hundred contributors to biopolymer research worldwide.
