2021 Materials Chemistry Division open award: De Gennes Prize Winner
Professor Chad Mirkin, Northwestern University
Awarded for contributions to supramolecular chemistry and nanoscience, in particular the invention and development of methods for nanolithography, high-area rapid printing, and photocontrol in nanoparticle synthesis.
Dr Mirkin's research group focuses on developing methods for controlling the architecture of molecules and materials on the 1–100 nm length scale (the nanoscale), with the aim of understanding their fundamental properties, and utilising these structures to develop novel tools that often outperform the state-of-the-art in the areas of chemical and biological sensing, gene regulation, immunotherapy, lithography, catalysis, optics, and advanced manufacturing, as well as energy generation, storage, and conversion.
