The Allan Ure Memorial Bursary is awarded to a scientist, at the start of their career, who has made a significant contribution to knowledge in the area of the application of atomic spectrometry to environmental science.
The Applied Catalysis Award aims to recognise the impact of significant contributions to the field of applied catalysis typically where research and development has potential or actual commercial application.
This is an individual award to recognize prominence and significant, sustained, scientific impact in the field of medicinal chemistry, agriscience or chemical biology, including teaching excellence, outstanding contributions to the BMCS, or any combination thereof.
The Bob Hay Lectureship is given in memory of Professor Bob Hay, one of the pioneers of macrocyclic chemistry in the UK. This lecture is given annually by a chemist in the early stages of their career working in the area of macrocyclic and/or supramolecular chemistry in its widest sense.
This lectureship from the RSC Chemical Biology and Bioorganic Group (CBBG) is to recognise the excellent contributions of mid-career scientists to both research and to the UK community in chemical biology and bioorganic chemistry.
The Cyril Keattch Award is made biennially to an outstanding early career scientist working in the field of thermal analysis or calorimetry to enable them to present a paper based on their work at an international conference.
The Elizabeth Colbourn Memorial Lectures are awarded by the organisers of the Formulation Science and Technology Group (FSTG) conferences where the lecture will add another dimension to the conference theme.
The Food Group Senior Medal recognises those who have made a substantial contribution to food chemistry over at least 15 years, whose work has led to advances in food chemistry of practical significance to the food industry.
The Macro Group UK Medal is awarded to a UK-based scientist who has made a significant and substantial contribution to the development of polymer science through their scientific achievements and their services to the UK polymer science community.
The Macro Group UK Medal for Outstanding Achievement is awarded to a scientist, from any country, who is recognised internationally for their continued, outstanding achievements in the field of polymer science.
The Michael J Gait Lectureship, sponsored by Idera Pharmaceuticals, honours world-renowned scientists who have made outstanding contributions in the areas of the chemistry and/or biochemistry of nucleic acids.
These awards recognise individuals who have made an outstanding lifelong contribution using or developing the chemical sciences within any of the fields of maintenance and improvement of public health; sustainability and access to water resources; and the environmental, economic and social sustainability of the water cycle.
