The Chemical Society of Washington has announced that Professor Lyle Isaacs is the winner of the 2019 Hillebrand Prize
Prof. Isaacs is recognized “for his excellent work in elucidating the remarkable molecular recognition properties of cucurbit[n]uril-type molecular containers and demonstrating their biomedical application as solubilizing excipients and reversal agents.”
The Hillebrand Prize is awarded annually for original contributions to the science of chemistry by a member or members of the Chemical Society of Washington (CSW). The Hillebrand Prize is the most prestigious honor given by CSW and is recognized nationally as a mark of significant accomplishment in chemistry. Many previous Hillebrand Prize winners have won numerous other national and international awards, including three that have received the Nobel Prize. The Hillebrand Prize originated in 1924 and is named for Dr. William F. Hillebrand (1853-1925), an internationally recognized pioneer in analytical chemistry and one of Washington’s most distinguished chemists.
The Chemical Society of Washington is the oldest and one of the largest chapters of the American Chemical Society. The award announcement and full history of the Hillebrand Prize winners is found on their website http://www.capitalchemist.org/category/awards/hillebrand-prize/
