The Bob Hay Lectureship


The award lecture is given in memory of Professor Bob Hay, one of the pioneers of macrocyclic chemistry in the UK.

This prestigious lecture is given annually by a younger chemist working in the area of macrocyclic and/or supramolecular chemistry in its widest sense.

The winner presents the Bob Hay lecture at the annual RSC Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Meeting. 

There is no annual MASC meeting this year as the 2017 Bob Hay lecture will be presented at the ISMSC meeting:
