Field and Franklin worked together as research chemists at Humble Oil & Refining Co. in the 1950s. Together they wrote the influential book"Electron Impact Phenomena and the Properties of Gaseous Ions." Their work was of great fundamental importance to understanding of ion/moleculereactions in the gas phase and they are credited with the development of the first ionization techniques for mass spectrometry.

The winner of the 2007 Frank H. Field and Joe L. Franklin Award for Outstanding Achievement in Mass Spectrometry, Jean H. Futrell of Pacific NorthwestNational Laboratory, will receive $5,000 and a certificate along with fully paid travel expenses to the 233rd National Meeting and Exposition, March25-29, 2007 in Chicago, IL, at which the award will be presented.
