Spon­sored by John­son Matthey

The award of the North Amer­i­can Catal­y­sis Soci­ety recog­nizes sub­stan­tial con­tri­bu­tions to one or more areas in the field of catal­y­sis with empha­sis on dis­cov­ery and under­stand­ing of cat­alytic phe­nom­ena, cat­alytic reac­tion mech­a­nisms and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and descrip­tion of cat­alytic sites and species. The Awardee will be selected on the basis of his/her con­tri­bu­tions to the cat­alytic lit­er­a­ture and the cur­rent time­li­ness of these research con­tri­bu­tions. The recip­i­ent may be invited to (1) visit and lec­ture to each of the affil­i­ated Clubs/Societies with which mutu­ally sat­is­fac­tory arrange­ments can be made and (2) pre­pare a review paper(s) for pub­li­ca­tion cov­er­ing these lec­tures.
