To a synthetic chemist, the complex molecules of nature are as beautiful as any of her other creations. The perception of that beauty depends on the understanding of chemical structures and their transformations, and, as with a treasured work of art, deepens as the subject is studied, perhaps even to a level approaching romance.
My special fascination has been to understand better the world of chemistry and its complexities.
To the field of synthetic chemistry belongs an array of responsibilities which are crucial for the future of mankind, not only with regard to the health and needs of our society, but also for the attainment of a deep understanding of matter, chemical change, and life.
I only found these three quotes by this Nobel Laureate. Here’s his Wikipedia link, if you’d like to learn more about this chemist: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elias_James_Corey
Since this is Arab American Heritage Month, this is the first of many I’ll be posting about.
Have a great Wednesday, folks!
Until next time…
