University of South Carolina
Columbia, SC USA

Recipient of the 2016 Florida Award

Richard D. Adams received a B. S. degree from the Pennsylvania State University in 1969 and a Ph. D. in chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1973 for research in inorganic chemistry performed under the direction of F. A. Cotton. He was an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the State University of New York at Buffalo, 1973-75 and Assistant and Associate Professor at Yale University, 1975-84. In 1984 he moved to the University of South Carolina as Professor of Chemistry. In 1995 he was appointed as the Arthur S. Williams Professor of Chemistry, and in 2006 he was appointed Carolina Distinguished Professor. He is the recipient of a number of national and regional awards including the 1999 ACS Award for Inorganic Chemistry and the 2010 ACS Award for Distinguished Service in the Advancement of Inorganic Chemistry. He also received the Charles H. Herty Medal of the Georgia section of the ACS; the Charles H. Stone award of the Carolina-Piedmont section of the ACS, and a Pioneer award from the American Institute of Chemists. He has also received the Outstanding South Carolina Chemist award by the South Carolina Section of the ACS, 2001; the Southern Chemist Award from Memphis Section of the ACS, 2001, and the South Carolina Governor's Award for Excellence in Science, 2003. He received the Henry J. Albert Award of the International Precious Metals Institute in 2005. He received the 2011 Distinguished Scientist Award of the Southeastern Universities Research Association. He is the American Regional Editor for the Journal of Organometallic Chemistry and a coeditor of the Journal of Cluster Science. He coeditor and coauthor of two texts, “The Chemistry of Metal Cluster Complexes, 1990” with Du Shriver and Herb Kaesz and “Catalysis by Di- and Polynuclear Metal Cluster Complexes, 1998” with F. A. Cotton. His research interests lie in the synthesis, structures and catalytic properties of metal carbonyl cluster complexes and bimetallic nanoparticles. He is the author/coauthor of over 570 original research publications.
