Emeritus Professor Burton named Fellow of the American Chemical Society

Donald Burton, emeritus Ralph L. Shriner-Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver Professor in the University of Iowa College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Department of Chemistry, has been named a Fellow of the American Chemical Society (ACS). Burton will be formally recognized Aug. 23 during the ACS national meeting in Boston.

Initiated by the ACS last year, the honor recognizes members who have demonstrated excellence in their contributions to the chemical sciences and in service to the ACS and the chemistry community.

Burton's research interests involve synthetic and mechanistic organofluorine chemistry, particularly the development of new synthetic reagents -- substances or compounds that help bring about chemical changes.

A nonprofit organization chartered by Congress, the ACS has more than 161,000 members and is the world’s largest scientific society.
