Craig Hawker receives ACS Award in Polymer Chemistry

Feburary 2013 

Hawker, director of the Materials Research Laboratory at the University of California, Santa Barbara, has had an impact on the field of dendrimer chemistry, block copolymer, controlled free-radical polymerization - many of which are practical to be in commercial markets. 

He was one of the ground-breakers in convergent growth dendrimer synthesis. He was the first to introduce and apply click chemistry concept to dendrimer and material synthesis. See the 2004 key article by Hawker Group and Sharpless Group.
