Professor Graham Hutchings FRS, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research, has been awarded the 2011 French-British Prize by the Société Chimique de France (SCF).
The prize recognises Professor Hutchings’ outstanding work in the field of heterogeneous catalysis in collaboration with the French scientific community. As well as his widely recognised work on gold-catalysis, the awarding body also highlighted Professor Hutchings’ seminal work on vanadium phosphates, much of which was carried out in collaboration with colleagues in Lyon between 1992 and 2004.
The SCF French-British Prize is awarded every two years in association with the Royal Society of Chemistry. Professor Hutchings will receive his Prize at a ceremony in France in 2012 and will also deliver a series of invited lectures in French laboratories.
Elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 2009, Professor Hutchings is currently Director of the Cardiff Catalysis Institute. He has had a long and distinguished career, devoting much of his time to the understanding and application of catalysis. Earlier this year, he became only the second UK-based research to receive the IPMI Henry J. Albert Award since its inception in 1979.
