Geoffrey W. Coates, Tisch University Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY (USA), has been awarded the DSM Performance Materials Award 2012 in recognition of his exceptional contributions to the advancement of polymer chemistry and the materials sciences. Professor Coates is one of the world’s most original scientists in the fields of polymer chemistry, catalysis and novel materials. In addition to his innovative work in the field of CO2-based chemistry, he has had great success developing advanced catalysts for the synthesis of new polymer architectures.

An international judging committee, chaired by Dr. Joseph Put, former CTO of DSM, selected Professor Coates from among the nominations received via a public call for nominations. Professor Coates received the award – which carries a cash prize of €50,000 – from Dr. Marcel Wubbolts, DSM’s Chief Technology Officer, at the IUPAC World Polymer Congress 2012 in Blacksburg, Virginia (USA) on June 25. Commenting on this year’s award recipient, Dr. Wubbolts said: “It is the work of innovative scientists like Geoffrey Coates that is enabling real advances in science. And these advances are helping us to sustainably fulfill our mission of creating brighter lives for people today and generations to come.”

Scientific career
Geoffrey Coates (45) was born in Evansville, Indiana and obtained a BA degree in chemistry from Wabash College in 1989 and a PhD in organic chemistry from Stanford University in 1994. His thesis work, under the direction of Robert M. Waymouth, investigated the stereoselectivity of metallocene-based Ziegler-Natta catalysts. After a postdoctoral fellowship at Caltech, he joined the Cornell faculty in 1997. He was promoted to Associate Professor of Chemistry in 2001 and only a year later, in 2002, was appointed Full Professor. He was appointed to the first Tisch University Professorship in 2008. Though still relatively early in his career, Professor Coates has already received numerous major awards, including most recently the Carl S. Marvel Creative Polymer Chemistry Award and the Affordable Green Chemistry Award (both in 2009, from the American Chemical Society). Geoffrey Coates is an Associate Editor of Macromolecules and a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Polymer Science. In 2011, he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and named as one of the ‘World’s Top 100 Chemists’ by Thomson Reuters. Earlier this month, he received the prestigious US Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award.

At the presentation ceremony in Blacksburg, Professor Coates gave an award lecture entitled ‘New Polymers from Old Monomers: Advances Enabled through Catalyst Design and Discovery’. Asked for his reaction on receiving the award, he said: “I’m highly honored to receive this award. It is good to see that in a world troubled by economic setbacks, companies like DSM are continuing to invest in science and are recognizing the importance of science in finding sustainable solutions to the world’s many challenges.”

The award
The DSM Performance Materials Award (dsm.com), which was introduced in 2008, forms part of DSM’s Bright Science Awards Program and is presented in cooperation with IUPAC, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. DSM grants the award every two years in recognition of scientific work that has significantly contributed to the advancement of the materials sciences. In 2008 the award was granted to Professor Craig J. Hawker of the University of California in Santa Barbara (USA) and in 2010 to Professor Han Meijer of Eindhoven University of Technology (Netherlands).
