Four users of the William R. Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL), located at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington, have been chosen to receive awards from the American Chemical Society (ACS) for 2003. The four recipients of the award are as follows: 1) Dr. Henry F. Schaefer III at the University of Georgia, Athens, will receive the award in theoretical chemistry for his contributions in applying computational predictions to intractable chemical problems. 2) Dr. Richard A. Smith at PNNL will receive the award in analytical chemistry for his work on integrating separation science and mass spectrometry to address bioanalytical problems and biological systems characterization. 3) Dr. Karl O. Christe at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Edwards Air Force Base and research professor at the University of Southern California will receive the award in inorganic chemistry for his work in addressing synthesis problems in inorganic chemistry. 4) Dr. David A. Dixon at PNNL received the award for Creative Work in Fluorine Chemistry at the 16th Fluorine Winter Conference in mid-January 2003 for his work in advancing the use of computational chemistry to bring unique understanding to the field of fluorine chemistry, especially chlorofluorocarbon (CFCs) replacements, organofluorine molecules, and inorganic fluorides.
