John K. Stille Symposium Endowment

Stille_thumbnailStille began teaching at Colorado State in 1977 and was one of CSU’s first University Distinguished Professors. Dr. Stille ranked among the world’s foremost synthetic polymer chemists.  He is renowned for development of the Stille Reaction, which played a central role in the science for which the 2010 Nobel Prize was awarded.  Stille’s research was cut short with his death on July 19, 1989, in the crash of United Airlines 232 in Sioux City, Iowa. His wife, Dolores, was a strong supporter of her husband’s career and of the chemistry department at Colorado State University until her death in February 1995.

Colorado State University created the John K. and Dolores Stille Symposium, a biannual event focused on topics within organic chemistry, after Stille and his late wife.
