Keith Gubbins has received the Lennard-Jones Prize from the Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry
Former Cornell Briggs Professor and former Chair of Chemical Engineering, Keith Gubbins, has received the Lennard-Jones Prize from the Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Last week, he delivered the biennial Lennard-Jones Lecture on ‘Fluids confined in Nanoporous Materials’ at the Thermodynamics 2013 conference in Manchester, U.K.
Gubbins, now a Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering at North Carolina State University, was recognized for his significant contributions to the field, in particular, the development of the statistical associating fluid theory (SAFT).
The Lennard-Jones Lectureship and Prize celebrates outstanding achievements of in the fields of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics. Previous recipients include two subsequent Nobel laureates (John Pople and Pierre Gilles de Gennes).
