Don Baer receives prestigious award for scientific contributions
Don Baer of the Institute for Integrated Catalysis received the 2009 Albert Nerken Award from the AVS. The award recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the solution of technological problems in areas of interest to AVS. Don was cited for his work advancing the application of surface-sensitive techniques to understand environmentally important materials and interfacial processes.
"Although the award is presented to an individual, much of my research has involved participating on and leading teams," Baer said. "These teams have made important advances in understanding stress corrosion cracking, oxide and mineral surface chemistry and dynamic behaviors of nanoparticles, as well as in developing and applying interfacial tools in EMSL that facilitate such advances."
Don will receive the award at the AVS International Symposium in November.
