Debenedetti wins American Chemical Society Award

Pablo Debenedetti, the Class of 1950 Professor in Engineering and Applied Science, has been named the recipient of the 2008 American Chemical Society's (ACS) Joel Henry Hildebrand Award in the Theoretical and Experimental Chemistry of Liquids. Debenedetti was cited for "seminal contributions to the understanding of metastable states of fluids and the nature of the glassy state, the phenomenon of polyamorphism, and the nucleation of stable phases, by statistical mechanical theory". He will receive the award at a ceremony on April 8, 2008, during the ACS National meeting in New Orleans.
