PMSE division selects two for the Fellows class of 2005.

The American Chemical Society Division of Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering (PMSE), Washington, D.C., has named its class of Fellows for 2005. The Fellows Program honors a small number of PMSE members who have distinguished themselves in the polymeric materials field. These individuals have been recognized for specific technical achievements, overall advancements of the field, and service to the division.

Induction of the sixth class of PMSE Fellows will take place at the division's meeting in San Diego, CA, on March 14, 2005. The Fellows class of 2005 includes the following:

Eric J. Amis, chief of the polymers division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD. A former university professor, he was the editor of Journal of Polymer Science: Polymer Physics Edition for 10 years and was awarded the Silver Medal from the U.S. Department of Commerce for Leadership for advancing new technical programs in the polymer division at NIST. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. Mr. Amis has chaired three Gordon Research Conferences: Macromolecular Dynamics, Polymer West, and Combinatorial and High-Throughput Materials Science (as cofounder). His research is primarily in the areas of solution rheology combined with light, neutron, and X-ray scattering methods to investigate the physics of complex systems such as biomembranes, polyelectrolytes, associating polymers, gels, polymer crystallization, and dendritic polymers. He recently began a program to apply combinatorial and high-throughput methods to materials physics and biomaterials, which let to the establishment of both the NIST Combinatorial Methods Center and a major NIST initiative in metrology for tissue engineering.


David J. Lohse is a staff member of the Corporate Strategic Research Labs of ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Co., Annandale, NJ. His current research focuses on the thermodynamics of mixing polymer blends, neutron scattering from polymers, the use of block and graft copolymers to enhance blend capability, the control of rheology by molecular architecture, nanocomposites, and the application of such knowledge to develop improved polymer products. Dr. Lohse's research has resulted in over 80 publications, including the book Polymeric Compatibilizers, and more than 15 patents. He has served the PMSE division of the American Chemical Society in numerous capacities throughout his career. Among these are program chair (1991-94), secretary (1995), chair (1998), and chair of the Fellows Committee (1999-2003). He began a term as Councilor for PMSE in 2003. Dr. Lohse was elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2000.
