Professor Suljo Linic of the University of Michigan is the recipient of the 2017 Paul H. Emmett Award in Fundamental Catalysis from the North American Catalysis Society (NACS). He received this award in recognition of his groundbreaking contributions at the interface of heterogeneous catalysis, surface chemistry, nanoscience, and computational catalysis.
The Paul H. Emmett Award in Fundamental Catalysis is the international flagship award of the NACS, awarded biannually to the most influential contributors to the field of chemical catalysis below age 45. It recognizes substantial individual contributions with emphasis on discovery and understanding of catalytic phenomena, proposal of catalytic reaction mechanisms and identification of and description of catalytic sites and species.

In addition to many other honors, Linic is the recipient of the 2014 ACS Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science, another international award that honors recent groundbreaking research (during the last 7 years) that enables better understanding of the links among the various sub-disciplines of catalysis and also advances the field of catalysis as a whole.
