Ken's Most Recent Prizes and Awards:

Theophilus Redwood Award, Division of Analytical Sciences, Royal Society of Chemistry, 2021. "The Theophilus Redwood Award is awarded by the Royal Society of Chemistry for outstanding contributions to the chemical sciences in the area of analytical chemistry. The Award for 2021 goes to Professor Suslick who has invented, developed and commercialised the 'optoelectronic nose', a simple but highly effective technology for the detection of toxic gases, identification of complex odorants, and the rapid diagnosis of disease based on smell. Olfaction is exceptionally important and often the dominant sense for most animals, but is woefully underappreciated by us humans. Developing a technology that can provide quantitative olfactory-like information is therefore especially important. Suslick's solution is a clever digital, multidimensional extension of litmus paper. Disposable arrays of printed spots of different dyes change colours depending on the odour to which they are exposed. The pattern of the colour change is a unique fingerprint that can identify dangerous gases, recognise bacterial infections, or even tell one single-malt scotch from another. This 'smell-seeing' has proven itself for personal dosimetry of toxic gas exposure (a 'radiation badge' for the chemical workplace), for rapid identification of cultured bacteria and fungi (for diagnosis of blood sepsis), and for disease diagnosis through breath analysis (with clinical trials for both lung cancer diagnosis and pulmonary infections). Beyond his scientific discoveries and fundamental research, Professor Suslick also co-founded iSense Systems LLC and Specific Diagnostics Inc (located in Silicon Valley) for the commercialisation of this novel technology."

Eastern Analytical Symposium Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Fields of Analytical Chemistry, 2021. Each year the Eastern Analytical Symposium honors analytical chemists who have distinguished career achievements. The Eastern Analytical Symposium Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Fields of Analytical Chemistry is the premier EAS award, presented in recognition of significant individual contributions in multiple disciplines of Analytical Chemistry.

Joel Henry Hildebrand Award in Theoretical and Experimental Chemistry of Liquids, 2019, American Chemical Society. The Hildebrand Award recognizes distinguished contributions to the understanding of the chemistry and physics of liquids. It is supported by Exxon-Mobil Research & Engineering Co. "The Hildebrand Award for 2020 is awarded to Professor Kenneth S. Suslick. Through his exploration of sonoluminescence and its use as a spectroscopic probe of acoustic cavitation in liquids and the chemical effects thereof."

George Eastman Professor, University of Oxford, 2018-2019. For the past 90 years, the Eastman Professorship has been one of the world's most prestigious visiting positions, open to all areas of learning. Among its recipients have been twelve Nobel Laureates; previous chemists have included Linus Pauling, Harold Urey, Melvin Calvin, Charles Tanford, Clyde Hutchison, Harry Gray and Martin Karplus). Ken is the first Eastman Professor from the University of Illinois.

Helmholtz-Rayleigh Interdisciplinary Silver Medal, Acoustical Society of America, 2018. The Helmholtz-Rayleigh Medal has been awarded since 1983 only upon nomination from two or more Technical Committees within the ASA. Ken received this award "for contributions to the acoustics of sonochemistry" from Physical Acoustics and Biomedical Acoustics. He is the only chemist to have been so honored.

Chemical Pioneer Award, American Institute of Chemists, 2018. The Chemical Pioneer Award recognizes chemists, chemical engineers, or their associates who have made outstanding contributions which have had a major impact on advances in chemical science and industry and/or the chemical profession. This award was first given in 1966.

Fellow, National Academy of Inventors, 2016.
"The National Academy of Inventors was founded in 2010 to recognize and encourage inventors with patents issued from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, enhance the visibility of academic technology and innovation, encourage the disclosure of intellectual property, educate and mentor innovative students, and translate the inventions of its members to benefit society. The NAI has 757 Fellows worldwide representing more than 225 universities and governmental and non-profit research institutions. Collectively, the Fellows hold more than 21,000 issued U.S. patents. With the induction of the 2016 class, there are now more than 94 presidents and senior leaders of research universities and non-profit research institutes, 376 members of the three branches of the National Academy of Sciences, 28 inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, 45 recipients of the U.S. National Medal of Technology and Innovation and U.S. National Medal of Science, 28 Nobel Laureates, 14 Lemelson-MIT prize recipients, 216 AAAS Fellows, and 126 IEEE Fellows, among many other awards and distinctions."

Centenary Prize, Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016.
"The Centenary Prizes are awarded to outstanding chemists, who are also exceptional communicators, from overseas to give lectures in the British Isles."
