Edward I. Solomon, Stanford University’s Monroe E. Spaght Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Photon Science at SLAC, has won the 2017 Pittsburgh Spectroscopy Award. He was presented with the award on Tuesday, March 7, at Pittcon 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.

Solomon received his PhD from Princeton University (Princeton, New Jersey) and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Ørsted Institute in Denmark and at Caltech (Pasadena, California). His research interests are in the areas of physical–inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry with emphasis on the application of a wide range of spectroscopic methods combined with QM calculations to elucidate the electronic structure of transition metal sites and its contribution to physical properties and reactivity.
