New Jersey researcher receives award for developing ozone-friendly aerosol

Scientist Jawahar C. Parekh of Reheis, Inc., in Berkeley Heights, N.J., will be honored May 29 by the worlds largest scientific society for developing the first aerosol antiperspirant that does not contain Freon. Parekh will receive one of three 2002 Industrial Innovation Awards at the American Chemical Societys Middle Atlantic regional meeting in Fairfax, Va.

Even in this multidisciplinary age, the individual investigator is crucial, the creative process heroic and inspiring, said Eli Pearce, president of the American Chemical Society. Those who initially probe the unknown alone will ultimately serve as catalysts for development of the products, materials and technologies that advance civilization in the 21st century.

Freon is a colorless, nonflammable liquid that was once commonly used in aerosols such as antiperspirants. The U.S. government banned Freon and other ozone-destroying chemicals in 1995.

The chemical propellant developed by aerosol antiperspirant manufacturers to replace Freon reacts with the antiperspirants active ingredient and forms a hazardous air pollutant. Parekh discovered a group of additives that reduces or blocks this reaction. The new, ozone-safe antiperspirant provides better protection at lower application levels and has a longer shelf life.

The American Chemical Societys Industrial Innovation Awards recognize individuals and teams whose discoveries and inventions contribute to the commercial success of their companies and enhance our quality of life.

NOTE TO REPORTERS: The winners will present 20-minute talks about their work on Wednesday, May 29, from 2:30-5 p.m. If you would like to attend the awards banquet or presentations, please contact the person listed above.

Jawahar C. Parekh is the vice president of technology at Reheis, Inc. He received his B.Tech. in chemical engineering from the Laxminarayan Institute of Technology in Nagpur, India, in 1961; his M.Tech. in chemical plant
