 Election Citation
Marks is known for the creativity, breadth, and diversity in his research. Through landmark synthetic, mechanistic, and thermodynamic investigations, he and his students opened a new portion of the Periodic Table to organometallic chemistry. He has also made major advances in solid state, polymer, bioinorganic and boron hydride chemistry, and in photochemical isotope separation.
