Minton will be recognized on Aug. 23 during the society's national meeting in Boston.
This year's program honors 192 distinguished scientists who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and made important contributions to the ACS, the world's largest scientific society. Minton is the first and only ACS Fellow from Montana. The group represents academe, industry and government.
"Whether it's making new materials, finding cures for disease or developing energy alternatives, these fellows are scientific leaders, improving our lives through the transforming power of chemistry," said ACS President Joseph S. Francisco. "They are also consummate volunteers who contribute tirelessly to the community and the profession."
