Centenary Award, 2004

The Centenary prize was founded in 1947 to commemorate the centenary of the Chemical Society in 1841. In 1980, the Chemical Society and the Royal Institute of Chemistry, together with the Faraday Society and the Society for Analytical Chemistry, became the Royal Society of Chemistry. The Centenary Prizes are awarded to outstanding chemists, who are also exceptional communicators, from overseas to give lectures in the British Isles.
