Boston College's Amir Hoveyda receives Italy's Eni Award for Hydrocarbons Research
Date:6/17/2014

Chestnut Hill, Mass. (June 17, 2014) Boston College Professor of Chemistry Amir Hoveyda has received a 2014 Eni Award for New Frontiers in Hydrocarbons from an international panel of preeminent scientists assembled by the Enrico Mattei Foundation of the Italian energy giant Eni SpA.

Hoveyda and other leading researchers were honored June 17 at a ceremony in Rome, hosted by Italian President Giorgio Napolitano in the official presidential palace, the historic Quirinale. Hoveyda received a gold medal struck at the Italian State Mint and a cash award of $270,000 (US). The Eni Awards recognize leading researchers in the areas of energy and sustainable chemistry, part of an effort to promote innovation in energy use and research by Eni, which employs 82,300 people in 85 countries.

"I am humbled," said Hoveyda, the Joseph T. and Patricia Vanderslice Millennium Professor of Chemistry and a 24-year faculty member at BC. "This is further testimony to the dedication, creativity and industriousness of more 100 selfless doctoral, post-doctoral and undergraduate scholars who have asked and addressed scientific questions in my laboratories since 1990 at Merkert Chemistry Center. This is first and foremost applause for their accomplishments."

Hoveyda was honored in the "downstream" category for transformations of hydrocarbons drawn from raw materials. Hoveyda develops new catalysts for chemical synthesis that are sustainable, easy and cost-effective to access, and able to generate valuable products of exceptional purity with high efficiency - characteristics critical to advances in the life sciences and medicine.

Hoveyda joins an illustrious group of scientists who have receive the Eni, including Nobel laureate Sir Harold Kroto of the University of Sussex, and US researchers including MIT's Gregory Stephanopoulos, U.C. Berkeley's Enrique Iglesia, Cal Tech's Frances H. Arnold and Craig Venter of the Institute for Genomic Research.
