2002 ACS National Award in Polymer Chemistry to Krzysztof MatyjaszewskiCongratulations to Kris Matyjaszewski who is this year's recipient of the ACS Award in Polymer Chemistry in honor of his significant contributions to the field. His research has mainly focused on the synthesis of organic and inorganic polymers, "living" ionic polymerization, and controlled/ living radical polymerization (e.g., ATRP).
Serving on the boards of an impressive number of scientific journals, Kris has also been a most valuable member of the joint International Advisory Board of Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics and Macromolecular Rapid Communications since 1998.
The recipient's most recent articles in Macromolecular journals appeared in:
Macromol. Chem. Phys. 2001, 202, 3392
Preparation of Polyisobutene-graft-poly(methyl methacrylate) and Polyisobutene-graft-polystyrene with Different Compositions and Side-Chain Architectures through Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP)
Macromol. Rapid Commun. 2001, 22, 1176
