SNIC-AsCA2019 Singapore Award for Solid-State Chemistry & Materials for the year 2022

The SNIC-AsCA2019 Singapore Award for Solid-State Chemistry & Materials is established by Singapore National Institute of Chemistry (SNIC), jointly funded by the local organizing committee chair of the 16th Conference of the Asian Crystallographic Association held at the National University of Singapore (17-20 December 2019) and SNIC.

This award is to recognize and encourage fundamental research in the field of solid-state chemistry of crystalline materials in Singapore. The award consists of S$2000, a certificate, and a medal. The award will be presented at the Singapore International Chemical Conference (SICC) annually from 2021. This prestigious award is presented once to a researcher for his/her lifetime and will not be considered again.

The selection committee for the SNIC-AsCA2019 Singapore Award for Solid-State Chemistry & Materials has defined the following executive rules and procedures for this inaugural award:

1. Eligibility: Applicants must have accomplished outstanding research in any aspects of solid-state chemistry of crystalline materials including synthesis, properties, reactions, structures, and crystallography. Special consideration will be given to independence of thought and originality. The award will be granted regardless of race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, presence of disabilities, and educational background. Nevertheless, the original work should have been done independently in Singapore for this award. The award winner must present a talk at the upcoming SICC and should be an active member of SNIC.
