Thomas Greenbowe, chemistry professor at Iowa State University, has been named as an ACS Fellow. The American Chemical Society named 96 fellows, who will be feted at the society’s fall national meeting in Indianapolis next month, in a ceremony hosted by ACS Immediate Past-President Bassam Z. Shakhashiri.
“This is an honor bestowed on members for their outstanding accomplishments in scientific research, education, and public service,” said Shakhashiri in announcing the 2013 class of ACS Fellows. “Their individual contributions to ACS, to science, and to society are hallmarks of distinction in keeping with the ACS mission of advancing the chemical enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people.”
This honor comes a few short months after Greenbowe was named one of the first Morrill Professors for excellence in teaching at Iowa State.
