Developers of Carbon Coupling Breakthroughs Receive Nobel Prize

9:17 AM MDT | October 12, 2010 | Rebecca Coons

The 2010 Nobel Prize for chemistry was awarded to three chemists for the development of palladium-catalyzed cross coupling in organic synthesis, a breakthrough that vastly improved the ability to create complex carbon-based molecules. The winners are: Richard Heck, a retired professor from the University of Delaware (Newark); Ei-ichi Negishi, a chemistry professor at Purdue University (West Lafeyette, IN); and Akira Suzuki, professor at Kokkaido University (Sapporo, Japan). By using palladium-catalyzed cross coupling, scientists were able to make carbon atoms...
