Speculation over who will win this year’s chemistry Nobel prize has been feverish. Is it the turn of the biologists again (an old complaint that the lack of a biology Nobel prize means those feckless biologists have to filch our prize!) à la the 2009 prize for the structure of the ribosome? Or will it be awarded for more traditional chemistry like the 2010 prize for cross-couplings? Or it could even be another one like last year’s prize for quasicrystals that came completely out of left field and surprised a lot of people. We don’t know! But, if you want to see the predictions people have been making and even the odds for them then check our blog post. Otherwise sit back, relax and we’ll soon know who’s taken the most prestigious gong in the sciences and then the nice people on the Nobel prize committee will explain why it’s important and what it all means.
