Zare receives U.S. and English awards
Richard N. Zare, the Marguerite Blake Wilbur Professor of Chemistry, has received two awards: one from the American Chemical Society (ACS), the other from the Royal Society of Chemistry in the United Kingdom. The ACS has selected Zare as the 1998 recipient of its annual Award in Analytical Chemistry. The award consists of $5,000 and an etching. Its purpose is "to recognize and encourage outstanding contributions to the science of analytical chemistry." The award will be presented at a March ACS meeting in Dallas. The Royal Society of Chemistry in London has picked Zare as one of its three 1997-98 Centenary Lecturers. The lectureship was founded to celebrate the centenary of the society. Its purpose is to promote the interchange of chemists between the United Kingdom and other countries. In addition to covering travel expenses for visits to several chemistry centers in the British Isles, the award comes with a silver medal and an honorarium.
