Susan Odom

The Women Chemists Committee (WCC), which serves the membership of the American Chemical Society (ACS), presents Susan Odom, an associate professor of chemistry in the University of Kentucky College of Arts and Sciences, with its “Rising Star” award. Odom is one of only 10 scientists to receive the honor, according to the university. The WCC presents Rising Star awards to women scientists approaching mid-level careers across areas including academic, industrial, government and nonprofit, “who demonstrate dedication and promise in their prospective fields.”

According to the university, Odom created new organic compounds for applications in electrochemical energy storage systems including lithium-ion batteries used in portable consumer electronic devices. Odom’s additives are proven to protect lithium-ion batteries from overcharging conditions longer than any other electrolyte additive. Odom will receive the Rising Star award at the ACS national meeting in March in Philadelphia.
