Professor Tony Legon
The Liversidge Award has been given since 1928 and is in recognition of outstanding contributions to physical chemistry. This is one of the RSC's most "senior" prizes and previously both Ron Ottewill and Richard Dixon have been winners, with others including Chatt, Porter, Nyholm, and Pauling. The Liversidge involves a prize and medal and Tony will deliver his award lecture during the course of next year.
Head of School Tim Gallagher said "I am sure all Tony's colleagues will join me in congratulating him on this award and the high level recognition it bestows".
