Dow Chemical’s Jerzy Klosin to Receive SCI Gordon E. Moore Medal

The Society of Chemical Industry (SCI), America Section, will award the 10th annual SCI Gordon E. Moore Medal to Dr. Jerzy Klosin, a research fellow at The Dow Chemical Co. SCI will honor Klosin at a luncheon in his honor during Innovation Day 2013 on Sept. 17 at the Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) headquarters in Philadelphia.

dow0507SCI established the Gordon E. Moore Medal to recognize early-career success in innovation, as reflected both in market impact and improvement to quality of life. Klosin is being recognized for his contributions to the advancement of industrial chemistry in the discovery, scale-up, and commercialization of a new generation of catalysts used in the production of a wide range of important polyolefins including ELITETM, AFFINITYTM, ENGAGETM, INFUSETM and NORDELTM.     

Klosin’s catalysts deliver significant control of co-monomer incorporation and termination reactions, enabling the creation of wholly new polymer architectures, according to SCI. The resulting “designer polyolefins” can be tailored to help streamline processes and enhance sustainability by significantly improving the energy efficiency of production. 

Klosin is the third scientist from Dow to receive the Gordon E. Moore Medal since its inception 10 years ago.
