Associate Professor Cyrille Boyer has achieved an unprecedented feat by scooping two prestigious awards at the 252nd American Chemical Society National Meeting & Exposition.
Associate Professor Cyrille Boyer from the UNSW School of Chemical Engineering has won the Journal of Polymer Science Innovation Award and the Biomacromolecules/Macromolecules Young Investigator Award. Both awards were honoured during an award symposium at the 252nd American Chemical Society National Meeting & Exposition on August 21-25, 2016, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.
Boyer was selected in recognition of his outstanding contributions in development of new functional polymers and new nanomaterials for biological applications.
Boyer has developed original methodologies for the synthesis of complex macromolecules, including star polymers, hyperbranched polymers, and biodegradable polymers and a new photoinduced polymerization techniques, photoinduced electron/energy transfer – reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer polymerization (PET-RAFT).
Dual award recipients of the Biomacromolecules / Macromolecules Young Investigator Award, Associate Professor Boyer and Professor Andrew P. Dove from the University of Warwick are pictured across. This award is sponsored by the ACS journals Biomacromolecules, Macromolecules and ACS Macro Letters in partnership with the Division of Polymer Chemistry.
