APPENDIX B 95 Joseph G. Gordon II is manager of Material Sciences and Analysis at IBM's Almaden Research Center. He received his A.B. from Harvard College (1966) and his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- nology (1970~. His research involves interracial electrochemistry, inorganic chemistry, and analytical chemistry. He has been a member of the Board of Chemical Sciences and Technology and is a member of the American Chemical Society, Royal Chemical Society, National Organization of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers, American Association for the Advancement of Science, Electrochemical Society, and the American Physical Society. Arthur ,1. Nozik is a senior research fellow with the Basic Science Division of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). He received his B.S.Ch. from Cornell University in 1959 and his M.S. in 1962 and his Ph.D. in 1967 in physical chemistry from Yale University. Since receiving his Ph.D., Dr. Nozik has worked at NRL, where he has conducted research in nanoscience, photo- electrochemistry, photocatalysis, and hydrogen energy systems. He has served on numerous scientific review panels and received several awards in solar energy research. He is a senior editor of the Journal of Physical Chemistry, a fellow of the American Physical Society, and a member of the American Chemical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Materials Research Society, the Society of Photo Optical Instrument Engineers, and the Electrochemical Society. Richard R. Schrock (NAS) is Frederick G. Keyes Professor of Chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He obtained his B.A. in 1967 from the University of California at Riverside and his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1971. In his research he first discovered and then focused on the preparation and properties of high-oxidation-state carbenes (alkylidine complexes). He also con- ducts research on the kinetics and mechanics of high-oxidation-state early-metal organometallic species and polymer synthesis and characterization as well as the synthesis of polymers containing organic or inorganic semiconductors or metal clusters. Dr. Schrock has been associate editor of Organometallics, has received several major awards, and is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences.
