To celebrate the International Year of Chemistry we’ve created a new section for Chemistry World where chemistry luminaries and Nobel laureates talk about the chemistry heroes and heroines that inspired them. We start with none other than Harry Kroto, who tells us about his admiration for John ‘Kappa’ Cornforth.
But we are interested in more than just the chemistry heroes of Nobel laureates and so we are asking you to participate in our blog and create an entry with your chemist of choice. The team here will all be making their contribution in the next few weeks and months and our editor Bibiana Campos-Seijo has got the ball rolling with her nomination: Carl Djerassi.
Watch this space for more or your and our heroes.
