Postdoctoral Fellow Liang Feng has been selected as the 2021 Victor K. LaMer Award Finalist by the ACS Division of Colloid & Surface Chemistry! The Victor K. LaMer Award is awarded to the author of an outstanding doctoral dissertation in the field of colloidal or surface chemistry. Victor K. LaMer, the founding editor of the Journal of Colloid Science (now the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science) from 1946 to 1965, made seminal contributions to colloid and physical chemistry, which can be found in every textbook and university course on this subject.
Liang will be recognized as a LaMer Keynote Speaker at the 95th ACS Colloid & Surface Science Symposium, to be held virtually on June 14-16 when the 2020 and 2021 Victor K. LaMer awards will be presented. He will be introduced by the session chair as a finalist for the 2021 Victor K. LaMer award, and present his keynote presentation entitled Complexity and Dynamics in Nanoporous Materials: How to Cut, Insert, Edit, and Animate Their Modules. A key advance that emerges from Liang’s dissertation research is the development of a comprehensive set of synthetic tools for controlling the pore environments of nanoporous materials. His graduate research contributed to 46 peer-reviewed articles (29 as first/co-first author) in journals including ACS Central Science, Advanced Materials, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Chem, Chemical Reviews, Chemical Society Reviews, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Matter, Nature Chemistry, and Nature Communications.
