Parks College News, Physics
The Academy of Science of St. Louis recently announced the 2013 Outstanding St. Louis Scientist Award recipients, who will be recognized at the annual dinner at the academy on April 24. The Outstanding St. Louis Scientists Awards Dinner honors today’s remarkable scientists and engineers while fostering the next generation of discovery.
Associate Research Professor of Chemistry at SLU’s Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology, Gregoriy Yablonsky, Ph.D., was selected for the James B. Eads Award, which recognizes a distinguished individual for outstanding achievement in engineering or technology.
Dr. Yablonsky is a world-recognized expert in the area of chemical kinetics, catalysis and chemical engineering, particularly in catalytic technology of complete and selective oxidation. Yablonsky’s theory of complex steady-state and non-steady state catalytic reactions is used by research teams around the globe. Bridging chemical kinetics and mathematics, Gregory developed a new paradigm for decoding the heterogeneous catalytic reactions based on rigorous relationships between observed reaction behavior and complex reaction mechanism. He also created a theory for the advanced worldwide experimental technique (Temporal Analysis of Products-TAP) developed in St. Louis. Gregory has numerous international designations as Honorary Professor, Fellow, Doctor and Member of prestigious science academies and universities in Belgium, India, China and Russia.
A full list of recipients can be found on the Academy of Science St. Louis website.
