  • Tom Holme, professor of chemistry, "For distinguished contributions to chemistry education through developing assessments as a researcher and as the director of the American Chemical Society Examinations Institute."

  • Patrick Schnable, Baker Professor of Agronomy, professor of genetics, development and cell biology and director of the Center for Plant Genomics and the Center for Carbon Capturing Crops, "For distinguished contributions to our understanding of the structure, function and dynamics of the maize genome and the development of genomic tools and resources."

  • Patricia Thiel, an Iowa State Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and a faculty scientist for the Ames Laboratory, "For increasing the level of understanding of surface properties of metallic quasicrystals, and for work on pathways by which metallic nanoclusters and thin films form and rearrange on metal surfaces."

  • John Verkade, University Professor of Chemistry, "For distinguished contributions to the organic catalysis field through synthesis of new organophosphorus catalysts for important organic reactions, and for distinguished service to the American Chemical Society."

  • Jonathan Wendel, professor and chair of ecology, evolution and organismal biology, "For distinguished contributions to our understanding of the phylogeny and genome evolution of higher plants, particularly the evolutionary fate of genes duplicated by polyploidy."

The nine researchers are among 503 association members who will be named fellows at the association's annual meeting in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 19. The award recognizes "scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications."
