PCCP Advisory Board member Professor Bert Weckhuysen was among the 2013 RSC Prize and Award winners honoured at a symposium held by the Faraday Division on 26 February 2014 at University College London (UCL).

The Faraday Division presented four RSC Prizes and Awards:

• Professor Bert Weckhuysen (Utrecht University) – the Bourke award

• Dr Andrew Goodwin (University of Oxford) – the Marlow award

• Professor Shik Chi (Edman) Tsang (University of Oxford) – the Surfaces and Interfaces award

• Dr Aron Walsh (University of Bath) – the Harrison-Meldola memorial prize

Professor Weckhuysen also serves as an Advisory Board member for Chemical Society Reviews, while Dr Aron Walsh is the current winner of the Journal of Materials Chemistry A Emerging Investigator award.

The four honourees gave excellent presentations about their research before being awarded a medal and certificate by Professor Geoff Thornton, on behalf of the President of the Faraday Division.
