Mary K. Carroll ’86, professor of chemistry, has been selected as a member of the 2016 class of fellows by the American Chemical Society.
Carroll is among 57 scientists nominated by their peers who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and made important contributions to ACS, the world’s largest scientific society.
Carroll joined Union’s faculty in 1992.
She will be honored at the society’s national meeting in Philadelphia next month.
The list of Fellows appeared in the July 18 issue of Chemical & Engineering News.
“While the ACS Fellows designation is a great honor for the recipients, it is a small measure of our gratitude for their dedicated service to chemistry,” said ACS President Donna Nelson.
The ACS is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress. With nearly 157,000 members, ACS is the world’s largest scientific society and a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.
