Shaoguang Feng Named Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry

- September 15, 2016 -

Dr. Shaoguang Feng, a Dow Fellow in Core R&D, has been named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), one of the most recognized science societies in the world. With over 50,000 members and an international publishing business, RSC is a professional association of chemical scientists, advancing excellence in the field of chemistry.

Shaoguang was recognized for his contributions in the fields of organic and polymer chemistry, catalysis, and structure property/performance relations, along with his strong ability to solve the toughest problems, and the leadership in delivering solutions to the world’s challenges. The honor also recognizes his passion for mentoring and developing young scientists, setting an outstanding example at Dow and in the general chemistry community.

Fellowship in the Royal Society of Chemistry is awarded to those who have made an outstanding contribution to either the advancement or application of chemical science, the chemical science profession, or the management or direction of an organization in which chemical science is important. Only a fraction of RSC members may be elected Fellows in a given year, and even fewer from industry.

Shaoguang joined Dow Core R&D in Midland in 1997. Prior to joining Dow, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratories. Shaoguang holds a Ph.D. in organometallic chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Jilin University, China. He is the author of over 30 peer-reviewed publications and a co-inventor of over 20 granted patents.

Established in 1841, the RSC partners with industry and academia, promotes collaboration and innovation, advises governments on policy, and promotes the talent, information, and ideas that lead to great scientific advances. RSC is recognized throughout the world as an authoritative voice of chemistry and chemists.
