Short citation at year of election 

Dr Moad is recognized as a world leader in the field of polymer chemistry specifically the areas of polymer design and synthesis and the kinetics and mechanism of radical polymerization where he has made a number of seminal contributions. His work has contributed substantially to the development of new synthetic methods for the controlled synthesis of polymers with defined architecture and molecular weight distribution. This research has revolutionized the field and resulted in highly cited publications and patent applications. Most notable is polymerization with reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT).
