Emeritus Fellows

The Divisions of IUPAC may award the status of Emeritus Fellow to former members of the Division and its erstwhile Commissions and Subcommittees who have made outstanding contributions to IUPAC and, through chemistry, to the chemical sciences in general. Emeritus Fellows may be appointed during each Biennium, the number of appointments reflect the current Subcommittee structure of the Division. Fellows are kept abreast of Division activities and are encouraged to remain active with the Divisions as ad hoc consultants.

The 2020 class of Emeritus Fellows is listed below with link to their the biographical curricula vitae.
