Congratulations to the 2019 Recipients of the ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering Lectureship Awards!

The Editors of ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering are delighted to announce the three winners of the 2019 ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering Lectureship Awards. These awards recognize the research contributions of scientists in three geographical regions, working in green chemistry, green engineering and sustainability in the chemical enterprise, who have completed their academic training within the past 10 years.


Professor Paul Dauenhauer

University of Minnesota

Representing the Americas, Professor Dauenhauer is being honored for advancing the molecular understanding of complex reaction systems including biomass pyrolysis and biobased chemicals such as p-xylene and oleo-furan surfactants via novel reactors and analytical techniques.


Professor Silvia Vignolini

University of Cambridge

Representing Europe/Middle East/Africa, Professor Vignolini is being honored for her contributions to the fabrication of biomimetic structures based on assemblies of natural materials within living organisms.


Professor Kevin C.-W. Wu

National Taiwan University
