Professor Dove received his fellowship on 23 March at the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS), which took place in San Diego, California.
Lisa Baugh, Chair of the Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering (PMSE) division of the ACS, awarded Professor Dove the fellowship for his original contributions to organocatalysis for ring-opening polymerization and stereochemically controlled polymerization.
Based at the University of Birmingham's School of Chemistry, Professor Dove leads the Dove Research Group, a multinational collection of vibrant and dynamic researchers that are focussed on challenges in polymer and materials science.
Professor Dove is also part of the Birmingham Plastics Network, an interdisciplinary team of more than 40 academics working together to shape the fate and sustainable future of plastics.
It’s an honour to receive this recognition for our work. Being an award from the US, it really recognises the international reach of our work. Professor Andrew Dove
