Two chemistry professors win Cope Scholar Award

Song Lin, Tisch University Professor of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology in the College of Arts & Sciences, was recently awarded the Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award from the American Chemical Society. 

The Lin Research Group, which he leads, is involved with research on synthetic electrochemistry, and expands the scope and application of electrochemical systems, according to Lin. He is one of the associate editors for Organic Letters, the leading academic journal on organic chemistry.  

The Cope Scholar Award recognizes contributions to organic chemistry and includes a $40,000 grant for a university or research institute of the professor’s choice, along with a $5,000 prize. 

“This award recognizes the collective efforts of both current and former members of the Lin lab in the past seven years and inspires us to continue our pursuit of innovative and impactful research at the intersection of electrochemistry and organic synthesis,” Lin said.

Lin also received a 2022 Green Chemistry Challenge Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for his contributions to environmentally sustainable chemical development. In 2021, he received the National Fresenius Award from Phi Lambda Upsilon, the national chemistry honor society. He became an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow in 2019 and received the National Science Foundation’s Career Award in 2018.

Hyrum Edwards is a communications assistant for the College of Arts & Sciences.
