Green Chemistry Advisory Board member Joan Brennecke, the Keating-Crawford Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, USA, has been elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering. This honour has been awarded “for innovation in the use of ionic liquids and supercritical fluids for environmentally benign chemical processing.”
Election to the National Academy of Engineering is one of the highest professional distinctions that can be awarded to an engineer. An Academy membership honours those who have made outstanding contributions to engineering research, practice or education.
Green Chemistry would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Professor Brennecke on this achievement.
