The Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2021 was awarded today (Wednesday) in collaboration with the German Benjamin List and the American David McMillan for new discoveries in the field of asymmetric organotocalysis.
The two have developed a new tool for molecular construction: organoctalysis.
It is used, among other things, to develop new drugs and make chemistry greener.
