Nobel lectures: Chemistry: 2006 - 2010
Mentioned as the second prize area in his will, Chemistry was the most important science for Alfred Nobel’s own work. The development of Nobel’s inventions as well as the industrial processes he employed were based upon chemical knowledge. This volume is a collection of the Nobel lectures delivered by the prizewinners, together with their biographies and the presentation speeches for the period 2006-2010. Each Nobel lecture is based on the work for which the laureate was awarded the prize.
