The Editors of the leading international journal Chemical Physics Letters are pleased to announce that the second Ahmed Zewail Prize in Molecular Sciences has been awarded to Professor Mostafa El-Sayed from Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, for his seminal contributions to the understanding of the electronic and molecular dynamics and properties of systems with different length scales, ranging from molecules to nanoparticles to biomedical systems.

Mostafa El-Sayed has made broad fundamental contributions to many research areas in the field of electronic and molecular dynamics. His pioneering experiments have yielded deeper understanding of the mechanisms of electronic dynamics in many systems of different length scales ranging from gaseous molecules; ions; gaseous clusters; molecules in condensed phase; amorphous and crystalline solids; nanoparticles and photo biological systems.

The Ahmed Zewail Prize will be presented during the 2009 Spring meeting of the American Chemical Society, in Salt Lake City, USA.

ABOUT THE AHMED ZEWAIL PRIZE IN MOLECULAR SCIENCES

The Ahmed Zewail Prize in Molecular Sciences is awarded on a biennial basis to an individual scientist who has made significant and creative contributions, particularly those of a fundamental nature, to any of the disciplines of molecular sciences. The awardee's research activities may cover theoretical and/or experimental aspects of studies in all phases of matter and biological systems.

The Prize consists of a monetary award of US$ 20,000, a Gold Medal, and a certificate. The awarding of the Prize took place at the Ahmed Zewail Prize Award Symposium at the ACS Spring National Meetings.
