Synopsis

The Nobel Prize, bequeathed to the rest of the world by Alfred Nobel, is arguably the highest accolade. The Nobel Prize for Chemistry has been given for more than 100 years to reward the most important chemical discoveries and achievements in the preceding year, regardless of nationality. Nobel Laureate Contributions to 20th Century Chemistry provides detailed biographical information on each of the laureates and includes a summary of the chemistry that won them the prize. This well researched and detailed book also includes captivating lesser known facts and anecdotes about the scientists, revealing the personalities behind these great minds. There is also an interesting section mapping out the relationships (familial and professional) between the laureates. Each entry covers the laureates known honours and awards in historical context with their peers and also presents the scientist's own view of their work sourced from their Nobel lectures. This book should appeal to anyone interested in science and the history of science and offers a fascinating insight into the most highly celebrated chemists of our time.
