Well done Professor

Congratulations to Martyn Poliakoff (better known to many of our viewers simply as "The Professor").

He's been awarded The Royal Society’s Leverhulme Medal for his work on green chemistry and supercritical fluids.

It might not mean much to non-scientists, but any accolade from the Royal Society is a big deal.

The University of Nottingham's press release has a bit more detail.

If you'd like to learn more about Martyn, I'd recommend the Martyn Poliakoff collection I put together for Test Tube a couple of years ago, which covers both green chemistry and supercriticial fluids.

Or just enjoy him in action at The Periodic Table of Videos.

A couple of videos about Martyn's work are embedded below.
