PULIDORI AWARD

award
The "Fernando Pulidori Prize", at its 6th edition, will be awarded to a young researcher, author of an original paper published during 2011-2013 or accepted for publication at the dead time of application.

For an application be accepted, the candidate must be:
  • 35 years old or younger on December 31st 2013.
  • PhD student or grantee at a University or Research Centre.
  • Author or co-author of the paper and the paper should be in the field of interest to ISMEC.
The candidate must present:
  • A copy of the published or accepted paper in PDF format.
  • Curriculum vitae and scientific activity (maximum two pages) in PDF, DOC, or DOCX format
Applicants must register online first, and then e-mail these documents to the organizing committee (ismec2013@ubu.es) until March 19th, 2013. The Scientific Committee of ISMEC2013 will evaluate the scientific impact of the paper, its originality and innovative character in the field of thermodynamics and kinetics of complexes in solution, and evaluate the significant contribution of the applicants to the research. The Scientific Committee decision  will be announced on April 15th, 2013.

The awarded young scientist will take part at ISMEC2013 with the registration free of charge, receive a monetary prize of 200 €, and will have the chance to present the winning work at the awarding ceremony. An extended abstract of that work will also be published in "La Chimica e L'industria", the official journal of the Italian Chemical Society.

After the members of the Scientific Committee have examined and evaluated carefully the merits presented by the applicants, two candidates were separated by a very narrow margin, which is the reason for the delay in the final proposal.

The winner  of the 2013 Pulidori Award is,
Greta Bergamaschi, from the University of Pavia

Congratulations to Greta!



Fernando Pulidori (1928-2007)

Was born on June 26th 1928 in Ferrara, Italy.

Education: Graduated in 1958 in Chemistry at the University of Ferrara, after five years in the food industry. In 1968 he completed his PhD in Physical Chemistry.

Employments: volunteer researcher at the Institute of Chemistry at the University of Ferrara (1958-60), lecturer in Experimental Physical Chemistry (1960-68), Assistant Professor of Physical Chemistry (1968-80) and Full Professor of Instrumental Analytical Chemistry (1981-2000) of the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Ferrara. Head of the Chemistry Department (1988-1994).

Main fields of research:
  • Solution equilibria: thermodynamic studies on formation of metal complexes with low-molecular weight ligands, stereoselective effects in ternary complex formation and their application in resolution of enantiomer mixtures.
  • Solute-solvent interactions of model organic compounds in aqueous solutions. Hydrophilic-hydrophobic interactions and solvation models.
  • Dipole moments in apolar solvents; corrosion and inhibition of iron corrosion; adsorption of organic compounds at polarized interfaces and electrical double layer structure; electroreduction mechanisms of organic compounds of environmental interest.
