The Pauling Medal Award recognizes outstanding achievement in chemistry and is presented annually by the Portland, Puget Sound, and Oregon Sections of the American Chemical Society. The award is named after Dr. Linus Pauling, a native of the Pacific Northwest, because of the inspiration of his example.
Professor Catherine Murphy will be receiving the ACS Linus Pauling award. The award will be presented at the annual annual Linus Pauling Medal Award Symposium which will be held on October 26, 2019 in Corvallis, Oregon. Murphy will give a talk after the symposium and banquet.
