David Herbert recipient of Strem Award for Pure or Applied Inorganic Chemistry by Chemical Institute of Canada
Congratulations to Dr. David Herbert, Department of Chemistry on being awarded the Strem Award for Pure or Applied Inorganic Chemistry by Chemical Institute of Canada. The award, sponsored by Strem Chemicals part of Ascensus Specialties, is presented to an individual that has made a contribution to inorganic chemistry, showing exceptional promise.
David Herbert (Chemistry) is a synthetic inorganic chemist, and leads a research team probing the ability of chemistry to answer critical questions in energy and sustainability, all through the lens of fundamental bonding and reactivity at a molecular level. This includes designing novel molecules and materials for solar energy capture and conversion, and molecular battery materials for off-grid energy storage, in addition to applying electrochemistry and catalysis in the pursuit of environmentally friendly alternative routes for the production of value-added chemicals.
