Carol Creutz passed away on July 10, 2013. Carol was a strong scientific contributor to the Chemistry Department and BNL for 40 years, and continued very active after her transition to Emeritus Senior Chemist September 2012. Carol made distinguished contributions in mechanistic chemistry, photochemistry, catalysis, and mixed valence complexes (i.e., Creutz-Taube ion), and was a lynchpin of the solar photochemistry program. She also led the Chemistry Department as Chair for five years in 1995-2000. Her contributions to the department helped to shape its present strong course. She is missed by her colleagues and friends.
