The Australian Academy of Science honours Visiting Professor of Chemistry Sir Fraser Stoddart

Posted 25 May 2021

The School of Chemistry congratulates Sir Fraser Stoddart on the distinction of being invited by the Academy to join as a Corresponding Member.

Corresponding Membership is a special category within the Fellowship, comprising eminent international scientists with strong ties to Australia who have made outstanding contributions to science.

Prof. Stoddart is a 2016 joint Nobel Laureate in Chemistry and one of the few chemists during the past 35 years to have created a new field of chemistry — Mechanostereochemistry. He pioneered the development of techniques now employed as molecular switches in the fabrication of molecular electronic devices and in the design and synthesis of artificial molecular machines.
