Russell Morris elected FRS

Friday 29 April 2016

Professor Russell Morris has just been elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society (FRS).  Election to the Royal Society, the oldest scientific society in the world,  is a rare achievement and only scientists of exceptional international standing are recognised in this way. Russell was elected for his pioneering work on metal organic frameworks. He developed the ADOR (Assembly-Disassembly-Organisation-Reassembly) and he pioneered the ‘ionothermal’ approach for the preparation and processing of porous solids.

Very many congratulations Russell and also to his research group!
