I-APS Award in Photochemistry
Kirk S. Schanze
University of Florida
~ for his
fundamental and influential work in areas that include organic
materials chemistry and the application of this knowledge in energy
research, sensing, photonics, and light-activated biocidal activity.
Prof. Schanze has also contributed to the advancement of photochemistry
and the photosciences through his service to the Society, as well as to
the ACS, GRC, and NSF, and through outstanding teaching and mentoring
of young scientists in the field.
I-APS Young Investigator Award
North Dakota State University
~ for his work in
the areas of chiral photochemical processes in solution, nanoscience,
organic chemistry, and host-guest supramolecular chemistry. Prof.
Jayaraman has also proven himself as a dedicated teacher and mentor.
David R. McMillin
~ in recognition
of his research accomplishments over a 35 year career and
for his outstanding service to the Society. In his early seminal work
on Cu(I) diiimine complexes, Prof. McMillin, discovered their
long-lived emissive excited states. Exciplexes and unusual excited
states of transition metal compounds have been hallmarks of Prof.
McMillin's research. A long-time active member
of the Society, he has served in various capacities over the years,
including President. Prof. McMillin is the 17th I-APS Fellow to be
selected by the Society since the honor was introduced in 1994.
