MSU’s Dye Named a Fellow in National Academy of Inventors
The National Academy of Inventors (NAI) has named James L. Dye, University Distinguished Professor Emeritus of chemistry, an NAI Fellow. He was recognized for having “demonstrated a highly prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society.”
Dye is best known for his work with alkali metals, earning him recognition as the discoverer of alkalides and electrides. Dye will formally be inducted as an NAI Fellow this April at a ceremony held at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum in Boston.
