ACS Award in pure chemistry
Professor Danna Freedman has received the ACS Award in Pure Chemistry for her joint contributions to developing a molecular approach to quantum information science and harnessing diamond anvil cells as tiny, transparent synthetic vessels to create new chemical bonds.
This prestigious award is given to a chemist within ten years of his/her terminal degree and whose work demonstrates independence of thought and originality in research. The award dates back to 1931, with the inaugural recipient being Linus Pauling.
Danna will be honored at the Spring ACS National Meeting in Orlando in April 2019.
