RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.— F. Ivy Carroll, Ph.D., and R.K.M. Jayanty, Ph.D., have been named 2014 American Chemical Society Fellows for their outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and contributions to the American Chemical Society.
The 2014 American Chemical Society (ACS) Fellows were recognized at the Society's 248th National Meeting in San Francisco, California, Aug. 11.
Carroll, an RTI Distinguished Fellow in medicinal chemistry, is an internationally-recognized organic and medicinal chemist with more than 50 years of experience. He has made significant contributions to drug discovery and development, including the development of a diagnostic agent for Parkinson's disease and compounds to treat substance abuse and other central nervous system disorders.
In 2007, he was inducted into the ACS Medicinal Chemistry Hall of Fame and later received the2012 ACS Alfred Burger Award in Medicinal Chemistry. He has published more than 481 peer-reviewed publications, 34 book chapters, 43 patents and more than 20 current patent applications.
Jayanty, an RTI Distinguished Fellow , is an internationally-known scientist with more than 40 years of experience in environmental analytical chemistry. His research has yielded advances in complex, multimedia sampling/analysis and method development/evaluation programs.
Jayanty has developed monitoring methodologies that are currently used worldwide for compliance verification, enforcement and pollution-control decisions, including more than 20 methods adopted by the Environmental Protection Agency. He is an honorary member of the Air and Waste Management Association, and an adjunct professor in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, North Carolina State University.
In 2000, he received the ACS Award for Creative Advances in Environmental Science and Technology. He has published more than 100 peer- reviewed publications and several presentations in national and international conferences.
The American Chemical Society is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress.
