Wayne State professor named ACS fellow for research on synthesis of nanoscale materials

August 21, 2014

Wayne State University Professor of Chemistry Stephanie Brock is among a select group of scientists to be named to the prestigious 2014 American Chemical Society (ACS) Fellows Program. The ACS Fellows Program began in 2008 as a way to recognize ACS members for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession and ACS, the world's largest scientific society. Only 99 scientists across the globe have been inducted this year. Brock has been recognized for her research on the synthesis of nanoscale materials - particles with diameters on the order of 1 billionth of a meter. These small particles and their assemblies have functional properties that make them useful to address a number of global technological and societal challenges in the areas of renewable/clean energy, environmental remediation, data storage and refrigeration/microclimate control.
