The year 2000 prize, to be awarded to one or several recipients, irrespective
of nationality, has a value of 150,000 FF.
All entries must be presented through a learned society or through

Entry forms, a report on the work of candidates, and copies of the
most significant publications related to this work must be registered
by the Secretariat of the Maison de la Chimie Foundation before 15

of a chairman and 10 prominent members recognized for their work in
chemistry. The jury for the year 2000 prize includes three former
laureates (Peter B. Dervan, Professor of Chemistry, California Institute
of Technology, Pasadena, CA, USA, 1996; Claude Helene, Membre de l'Institut,
Professeur au Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Directeur Scientifique
du Groupe Rhone-Poulenc, 1996; and Professor Herbert W. Roesky, Institüt
für Anorganische Chemie der Universitat Gottingen, 1998), and
six scientists whose nationality is other than French. The jury will
choose the prize winner by majority vote, and the laureate will be
invited to present a lecture on his or her work at the award ceremony
on 18 January 2000 at the Maison de la Chimie in Paris. Unsuccessful
entries may be renewed for subsequent awards of the prize.
