Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to RESOLV Member Benjamin List

This year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry will be awarded to one of RESOLV’s Principal-Investigators: Benjamin List. Together with David MacMillan, he receive the prestigious award for their development of asymmetric organocatalysis. Benjamin List is director at the Max Planck Institute für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim an der Ruhr. David MacMillan is a professor at Princeton University and director of the Merck Center of Catalysis.

Goran K. Hansson of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced the decision this Wednesday in Stockholm. During the announcement ceremony, Benjamin List was asked to describe his feeling when he received the phone call from Stockholm: “I thought somebody was making a joke with me. Sitting at breakfast with my wife [and] “SWEDEN” appears on my phone. I looked at her, she looked at me and I ran out of the café and it was this amazing call. It’s hard to describe what you feel in this moment. It was a very special moment that I will never forget”, says Benjamin List.
