Alumnus Cliff Kubiak receives ACS Inorganic Chemistry AwardCongratulations to alumnus Cliff Kubiak in receiving the ACS Inorganic Chemistry Award of 2012! This award aims to recognize and encourage fundamental research in the field of inorganic chemistry. In addition, recipients of this award must have accomplished outstanding research in the preparation, properties, reactions or structures of inorganic substances. The Kubiak research group at UCSD has three areas of focus: (1)"Ultrafast" electron transfer dynamic in organic mixed valence complexes, (2) molecular electronics and nanoscience, and (3) catalysis of atom transfer chemistry, especially the chemical and electrochemical conversion of carbon dioxide. Cliff will be honored at the ACS Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, March 27th, in conjunction with the 243rd ACS National Meeting in San Diego, CA. Once again, congratulations Cliff!
