Professor Graham Hutchings FRS receives the Menelaus Medal

2017 Menelaus Medallist recipient, Professor Graham Hutchings, Regius Professor of Physical Chemistry and Director of the Cardiff Catalysis Institute, received his medal at the Learned Society of Wales (LSW) Fellows dinner, held at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama on the 23rd May, 2018.

Professor Hutchings said: “It is a great honour to be awarded the LSW Menelaus Medal. My work in the field of catalysis has been largely aimed at designing new technologies in collaboration with industry. Recently our work enabled gold to be used a new catalyst to replace a highly polluting mercury catalyst in vinyl chloride manufacture which I hope will really see benefits for society as a whole”.

The Menelaus Medal is awarded for excellence in any field of engineering and technology to any researcher with connections to Wales.
