Moulton Medals

The two Moulton Medals are awarded to the authors of the best paper of a mature nature and the best by an author who has graduated within the last 10 years published by the Institution during the year.

Lord Moulton is associated with the development of chemical engineering during the 1914-18 war when he took charge of explosives supply.

  • The Senior Moulton Medal is awarded to the author, or authors, of the most meritorious paper published by IChemE during the last year.
  • The Junior Moulton Medal follows the same criteria but recognises the best author, or co-author, who has graduated within the last 10 years (excluding career breaks) at the time of submission of the paper.

In the award of the Moulton Medals, IChemE is looking to reward papers that are forward-looking in topic areas that will be important in the future, as well as papers on more traditional themes that will appeal to readers who are not experts in the subjects covered.

The Publications Medals Board, examines papers and books published by IChemE during the year. These include papers published in IChemE journals: Chemical Engineering Research and Design; Process Safety and Environmental Protection; Food and Bioproducts Processing; Education for Chemical Engineersand Sustainable Production and Consumption; Molecular Systems Design & Engineering (jointly published with RSC), that have been shortlisted by the journals editors-in-chief as well as in the Symposium Series conference proceedings.

The Publications Medals Board recommends the winners to the Medals and Prizes Committee.
