Research has substantially altered the understanding of plasmonic effects in photocatalysis.

Suljo Linic of the University of Michigan

The American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Catalyst Science & Technology and the journal ACS Catalysis have chosen Suljo Linic of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Mich., as winner of their 2014 Catalysis Lectureship. He will give the lecture at ACS's Fall National Meeting in San Francisco."Dr. Linic's innovative research into plasmonic metal nanostructures and their photochemical properties has substantially altered our understanding of plasmonic effects in photocatalysis," notes Christopher W. Jones, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief of ACS Catalysis. "His studies into the surface electronic structures of metal and metal alloy nanomaterials and their implications for catalytic reactivity have greatly advanced the design of catalysts for reactions such as hydrocarbon steam reforming, selective olefin epoxidation, and the oxygen reduction reaction. Few scientists have made such significant contributions to catalysis at such an early stage of their career. This makes him truly deserving of the award."
