A Medalha Leverhulme é uma medalha de ouro concedida a cada três anos pela Real Sociedade de Londres, desde 1960, para distinguir “contribuições significativas no campo da química, pura ou aplicada, ou da engenharia, incluindo a engenharia química”.[1] A medalha é acompanhada por um prémio monetário de 2000 libras.

O prémio foi criado em 1960 pelo Leverhulme Trust (Fundação Leverhulme) por ocasião dos 300 anos da Real Sociedade.
