2010 Nobel prize (Chemistry)


Sadly we didn’t win a Nobel Prize this year (fingers crossed for next year), but Heck, Negishi and Suzuki did, for “palladium-catalysed cross-couplings in organic synthesis”.  And we got to make animations showing off the Heck and Suzuki reactions for TV.  Which was some consolation to our bruised egos. Heck Reaction: Suzuki Reaction:  Both reactions use a palladium
