Professor Egon Matijevic' Honored for His Lifetime Accomplishments in Chemistry

Clarkson University's Professor Egon Matijevic' was honored for his lifetime accomplishments in chemistry at the American Chemical Society's National Meeting in Boston during the month of August. A special 80th birthday celebration symposium titled " Fundamentals and Applications of Uniform Fine Particles: From Micrometers to Nanometers" was given in his honor.

Professor Matijevic', the Victor K. LaMer Chair in Colloid and Surface Science, is a renowned chemist well-known for his pioneering work on numerous topics focusing on fine particle science and engineering such as the preparation of monodispersed colloids and composites, dispersion stability, particle adhesion, heterocoagulation, aerosols, ceramics, and pigments. He is also involved with developing materials for multilayer capacitors, improving materials used in the production of computer chips, and mitigating water and air pollution.

Professor Matijevic' is the author of over 550 scientific papers and has more than 12 patents. He has delivered many plenary and keynote lectures around the world and has numerous awards to his name. He is the only individual ever to receive all three major awards of the American Chemical Society in his field of colloid chemistry: The Kendall Award (1972), the Langmuir Distinguished Lecturer Award (1985), and the Ralph K. Iler Award (1993). He was also awarded the Thomas-Graham Award in 1985, the highest award of the oldest colloidal society in the world, Germany's Kolloid Gesellschaft. In addition he has attracted millions of dollars of research support, and was instrumental in the founding of the Institute of Colloid and Surface Science at Clarkson University, serving for many years as its director. He also played a vital role in the emergence of Clarkson's Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) and its recognition as a Center for Advanced Technology (CAT) in New York State.
