Mark Cesa and James Economy Named ACS Fellows

The American Chemical Society (ACS) has named Mark Cesa, IUPAC vice president, and James Economy, president of the IUPAC Macromolecular Division from 1994–1997, to the 2012 class of ACS Fellows, a prestigious honor bestowed upon 96 distinguished scientists who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and made important contributions to the ACS. The ACS Fellows Program was created by the ACS Board of Directors in December 2008 “to recognize members of ACS for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and the society.”

“These chemists hold the future to our country, to our way of life, and to the legacy we will leave for the next generation,” said ACS President Bassam Z. Shakhashiri. “Whether it’s producing renewable fuels, finding cures for afflictions such as diabetes, cancer, AIDS, and Alzheimer’s disease, or ensuring safe drinking water, these fellows are scientific leaders, improving our lives through the transforming power of chemistry.”

The 2012 fellows were recognized at an induction ceremony on 20 August 2012 during the society’s 244th National Meeting and Exposition in Philadelphia.
