WASHINGTON - L.E. (Skip) Scriven, Regents Professor of Chemical Engineering & Materials Science at the University of Minnesota, is the winner of the 2007 Roy W. Tess Award in Coatings. The award is given annually by the ACS Division of Polymeric Materials: Science & Engineering and recognizes outstanding achievements in coatings science, technology and engineering.
Scriven’s research has been applied to coil coating processes, paper coatings, ink-jet printers, magnetic and optical disks, photographic films, liquid-crystal displays, automotive finishes, printed circuits, and optical fibers.
Scriven will receive the $2,000 award this fall during the ACS National Meeting in Boston.
