Right royal honours were bestowed on two of my very oldest contacts in the field of chemistry this week. Royal Society of Chemistry president Professor Jim Feast was awarded the CBE in the New Year Honours List for “services to polymer chemistry.” And, supramolecular ex-pat Fraser Stoddart was given a Knighthood for to “services to chemistry and molecular nanotechnology.”
Congratulations to them both. With such accolades under their belts, it’s surely only a matter of time before either one of them gets that phone call from Stockholm too.
