My Hang V. Huynh, 2006

Chemistry: For her seminal contributions in the design of new materials using coordination chemistry, including green primary explosives that contain no lead, no mercury, and no perchlorate, and for the creation of a new class of polyazido compounds with no carbon-carbon bonds that transcend the carbon-carbon bond paradigm and can be used to prepare novel ultra-pure nanomaterials, such as carbon nanospheres and high-nitrogen carbon nitrides.
