Gerhard Ertl, professor emeritus at Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (Berlin), has won the 2007 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (Stockholm), for his pioneering work in surface chemistry. Ertl’s studies of fundamental molecular processes at the gas-solid interface have led to a better understanding of chemical reactions that play a role in a suite of processes, from the destruction of the ozone layer to the production of semiconductors and agricultural fertilizers. Ertl: Work has had impact on a...
