Jack Freed receives 2014 ACS Joel Henry Hildebrand Award in the Theoretical and Experimental Chemistry of Liquids:

American Chemical Society announced that Jack H. Freed is the 2014 recipient of the Joel Henry Hildebrand Award in the Theoretical and Experimental Chemistry of Liquids sponsored by ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Co.  The national award recognizes distinguished contributions to the understanding of the chemistry and physics of liquids.  Professor Freed was presented the award at the Society’s 247th ACS National Meeting in Dallas, TX on Tuesday, March 18, 2014.   He was invited to deliver an award talk. The talk was entitled “ESR Perspective on Complex Liquids (A Retrospective)”

An article reporting about Dr. Freed’s work and the award appeared the February 10 issue of Chemical & Engineering News (Vol. 92, Issue 6, p.31):
