NYSE:DD, Financial) today announced it has named seven DuPont scientists and engineers as recipients of the company's 2021 Lavoisier Medal for Lifetime Technical Achievement and the prestigious Pedersen Award Medal.

The Lavoisier Medal for Lifetime Technical Achievement recognizes scientists and engineers who have demonstrated a career of creative technical contributions with significant business impact.

Pedersen, who received the 1987 Nobel Prize for his discovery of a novel class of chemical compounds called macrocyclic polyethers, which he dubbed the "crown" ethers because of their molecular shape.
