Klausen receives ACS award!

Rebekka Klausen

Congratulations to Rebekka Klausen, recipient of the 2021 ACS Award in Pure Chemistry!  Quoting Jillian Buriak (U. Alberta) in C&EN: “Professor Klausen’s work on polysilane chemistry is absolutely groundbreaking not only from a nanoscience viewpoint, but due to the smashing of preconceived notions of silicon chemistry, silicon can finally be viewed as much more than a poor relative of carbon in terms of synthetic chemistry. She has shaken up the world by showing that one can truly synthesize precise and controlled silicon-based molecules, and by extension, silicon nanomaterials.”
