Celebrating the 2015 RSC Prize and Award Winners

RSC Prizes & Awards

Each year the Royal Society of Chemistry presents prizes and awards to chemical scientists who have made a considerable contribution in their area of research, in industry and academia. The prizes and awards give recognition to these contributions from leading scientists.

In celebration of the 2015 RSC Prizes and Awards, we have collected together some of the exciting research recently published by the winners. This collection showcases articles authored by the winners from across the Royal Society of Chemistry’s journals portfolio, and all articles are free to access to all until June 6th 2015.

Dr Robert Parker, Chief Executive of the Royal Society of Chemistry says:
“It is always a pleasure to recognise excellence in the chemical sciences and I am pleased to acknowledge the illustrious achievements of our prize and award winners this year.”

“Whether they work in research, industry or academia, our winners are the very best in their fields, and they can be very proud to follow in the footsteps of some of the most influential and important scientists around the world.”

“In a complex and changing world, chemistry and the chemical sciences are vital in responding to some of humanity’s biggest challenges and our prize and award winners are at the forefront of meeting that challenge.”
