2010 CINF Best Presentation Award to George Thompson


At the 239th ACS National Meeting in San Francisco, March 21-25, 2010, the Division of Chemical Information (CINF) announced the winner of the CINF Best Presentation Award. The Award symposium selected was "Green Chemistry: Multidisciplinary Use of Chemical Information Resources" which was held on Sunday March 21, and the judges' unanimous choice of winner was Dr. George Thompson of Chemical Compliance Systems, Inc.

Dr. Thompson described an established database and system for assessing the "greenness" of chemicals, mixtures, processes and objects, which is just about to be embodied by a number of standards bodies.

The CINF Best Presentation Award was instituted in 2009 and is the result of an ACS Innovation Grant awarded to CINF with the intent of encouraging more speakers, higher quality papers, and larger audiences at CINF sessions at ACS Meetings.

The next CINF Best Presentation Award will take place at a CINF symposium on Drug Intensive Data Design, Fall 2010 ACS National Meeting, August 22-26, 2010, Boston, MA.
