Vadodara/ Anand: A professor working with the Department of Chemistry of Vallabh Vidyanagar-based Sardar Patel University (SPU) has been elected uncontested at the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), London.
Professor H M Patel is an active member of RSC, UK and the American Chemical Society, USA since the last five years. He had filed nomination to get elected as member of RSC’s organic division council in January this year.
He was invited by the RSC to join its online annual general meeting (AGM) recently in which more than 400 members from across the globe participated.
“It is a matter of immense pride that I have become the first Indian to get elected as member of the council without using the electoral ballot,” said Patel. tnn
