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.
