Prof. Christophe Copéret, ETH Zurich, Switzerland, has been awarded the Paul H. Emmett Award in Fundamental Catalysis by the North American Catalysis Society (NACS). The prize recognizes substantial individual contributions in the field of catalysis with emphasis on discovery and understanding of catalytic phenomena, proposal of catalytic reaction mechanisms, and identification of and description of catalytic sites and species.
Copéret is honored for his contributions to the preparation of well-defined heterogeneous catalysts through a molecular approach based on the controlled functionalization of surfaces and for the atomic description of the surface species and active sites, in particular via solid-state NMR spectroscopy. The award was presented at the closing banquet ceremonies at the 24th North American Meeting (NAM) of the Catalysis Society on June 18, 2015, in Pittsburgh, PA, USA.
