CORVALLIS, Ore. - Mas Subramanian, an internationally recognized chemist at Oregon State University, will receive the 2012 Chemical Research Society of India Medal, awarded to outstanding chemists of Indian origin who work outside of India.

Subramanian, the Milton Harris Professor of Materials Science in the OSU Department of Chemistry, will be honored at the 2012 CRSI 14th National Symposium in Chemistry in India this February.

An expert in such fields as high-temperature superconductivity, thermoelectrics, magnetoresistive materials, catalysis and solid-state dielectrics, Subramanian has discovered and developed many new materials. A recent discovery of new color pigments received worldwide attention.

Before joining OSU, Subramanian was a scientist at DuPont Central Research and Development. He has published nearly 300 papers in professional journals, which in turn received more than 12,000 citations. His work has yielded 54 patents that are in place or pending.

Subramanian received a doctoral degree from the Indian Institute of Technology in 1982, and is also a signature faculty fellow in the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnology Institute.
