Cram Lehn Pedersen Prize in Supramolecular Chemistry

The Cram Lehn Pedersen prize, named in honor of the winners of the 1987 Nobel Prize in chemistry, recognizes significant, original and independent work in the area of supramolecular chemistry.

ChemComm, a leader in publishing supramolecular chemistry research, sponsors the award.

Those who are within 10 years of receiving their PhD are eligible for the award. The winner will receive a monetary honorarium, free registration for the ISMSC meeting and give a lecture at the meeting as well as two additional research presentations in the country where the meeting is held.

Persons wanting to be considered for the award should send a CV, list of publications (divided into publications from PhD and post-doc and those from your independent work), and if desired a letter of nomination to Prof. Roger Harrison (ISMSC Secretary) at six months before the next ISMSC meeting.

Izatt-Christensen Award

Professor Izatt and the late Professor Christensen conceived the International Symposia concept and organized the first five Symposia starting in 1977.

IBC Advanced Technologies, Inc., of American Fork, Utah, USA, is the sponsor of the award.

The winner will receive a monetary honorarium and financial assistance for travel expenses. This award is open to anyone working in the area of macrocyclic chemistry who has not received an international award of $25,000 USD or more.

A panel of five international macrocyclic chemists representing the sub-areas of the field selects the winner.

Nominations for the Izatt-Christensen Award should send a nomination packet to Dr. Reed Izatt at by Feb. 1. The nomination packet should include: (1) name and affiliation of nominee, (2) biographical sketch of nominee, (3) letter from nominator summarizing the work upon which the nomination is based and giving specific reasons why the nominee should be considered for this Award, (3) scientific accomplishments of nominee upon which the nomination is based, (4) listing of no more than ten published references with titles supporting the work described, and (5) no more than three letters from other scientists supporting the nomination. A good length to strive for would be ten pages or less plus the letters of support.
