The Coblentz Society has announced that Professor Duncan Graham, Reviews Editor of Analyst, has been selected as recipient of the 2012 Craver Award.

The Craver Award was established in 2006 to recognize the efforts of young professional spectroscopists that have made significant contributions in applied analytical vibrational spectroscopy. The society has named this award for Clara D. Craver in recognition of her pioneering efforts in promoting the practice of infrared vibrational spectroscopy and her many years of service to the Coblentz Society.  Previous winners of the Award include another Analyst Editorial Board member, Boris Mizaikoff.

This award is presented to Professor Graham in recognition of his pioneering work in surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) to generate ultra-sensitive and highly selective methods of detection for a range of analytes, especially bio-analytical targets.

The Craver Award will be presented at the FACSS annual meeting, newly re-named SCIX, to be held in Kansas City, USA, 30 September – 5 October 2012.

Duncan will present the Coblentz Society’s Craver Award Plenary Lecture in Applied Vibrational Spectroscopy and a separate half-day award symposium of six invited presentations will be held following his lecture at this conference.

Take a look at Duncan’s recent Grand Challenges review below, and contact us if you’d like to discuss the submission of a review to his office.
