Alex Pines receives two medals

Chemistry professor Alex Pines has been named the Royal Society of Chemistry's centenary winner of the "Faraday Medal". The award is one of the most senior awards of the RSC and consists of a medal, honorarium and a two week lecture tour throughout Britain in late October and November 2003 where Pines delivered lectures at a number of scientific centers and forums.

The award was made for Pines' "many profound theoretical and experimental contributions to nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy , through which NMR has become a powerful analytical tool for materials of many kinds."

Additionally, Pines will be awarded the "Seaborg Medal" in December 2003 from UCLA.
