BYU's Calvin Bartholomew honored by American Chemical Society

Calvin H. Bartholomew, professor of chemical engineering at Brigham Young University, was honored recently for his professional achievements as part of the American Chemical Society’s Division of Colloid and Surface Sciences Meeting at Clarkson University in Potsdam, N.Y.

At a dinner held in his honor, colleagues, friends and former students presented a personal and professional sketch of Bartholomew’s life, delivered tributes and presented him with an award recognizing his contributions.

Bartholomew joined the Chemical Engineering Department in 1973. He has organized and taught courses addressing reaction kinetics, catalysis, catalyst deactivation, air pollution control, energy and engineering materials.

Bartholomew has conducted research for 35 years in the areas of heterogeneous catalysis and combustion. He has made many contributions to the teaching and fundamental understanding of these areas.
