Meldola Medal and Prize


Medola medal

This award was modified in 2008. It has been joined with the Edward Harrison Memorial Prize and the new prize is called the Harrison-Meldola Memorial Prize.

The Meldola Medal and Prize commemorated Raphael Meldola, President of the Society of Maccabaeans and the Institute of Chemistry.  

The awards were made to British chemists who have conducted the most meritorious and promising original investigations in chemistry and published the results of those investigations. No restrictions were placed upon the type of research carried out or the place in which it is conducted, but nominees had to be under 32 years of age and British.

Where appropriate, the Meldola prize is given for research in areas of chemistry, other than theoretical or physical.
