Prof. Emanuel Peled

Tel Aviv University

2015

 

Inventor and developer of the Solid-Electrolyte-Interphase (SEI) model for non-aqueous alkali-metal batteries. This model, which was cited over 15,000 times, constitutes a paradigm change in the understanding of lithium batteries and has thus enabled the development of safer, durable, higher-power and lower-cost lithium batteries for portable and EV applications.

Prof. Yoram Cohen

Tel Aviv University

2015

 

Established the experimental MRI unit of Tel Aviv University, served as Head of the Strauss Center for Computational Neuro-Imaging and was Head of the School of Chemistry. His research ranges from supramolecular chemistry in solution and molecular capsules to the applications of advanced MRI techniques for studying structure and pathologies in the central nervous system with special emphasis on diffusion NMR and MRI.

Arie Zaban

Bar Ilan University

2014

For his outstanding invoative and prolific contribution to renewable energy and particulary to photovaltic cells, batteries, and materials science for energy applications.

Ronny Neumann

Weizmann Institute  of Science

2014

For his work in the field of catalytic oxidation, which has resulted in major achievements in ‘Green Chemistry’, particularly in the usage of benign oxidants and water as a solvent, for selective oxidation of a great array of organic compounds, and in reductive chemistry of CO2 as well as in the quantitative conversion of cellulose and hemicellulose to synthesis gas (CO and H2). 

Zeev Gross

Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

2013

For disclosing the large potential of corrole metal complexes as mediators for important processes in human health and catalysis.

Aharon Gedanken

Bar Ilan University

2012

For his prolific contributions to spectroscopy and to the fabrication of new nanomaterials using sonochemistry, microwave dielectric heating, sonoelectrochemistry and RAPET. He used his methods and materials to encapsulate biologically active compounds in microspheres and formed composite materials of antiviral and antibacterial activity.

Ilan Marek

Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

2012

For his creative contributions to the development of new methodologies in organic synthesis. His one-pot reactions using readily available starting materials, which lead to high regio- and stereo-specificity, allow for efficient synthesis of complex materials.

David Cahen

Weizmann Institute of Science

2011
