Wow, brilliance personified! :D

Nicolaou joined Rice’s faculty in 2013. His specialty is total synthesis, an area of organic chemistry dedicated to the complete synthesis of nature’s most complex molecules. Nicolaou has authored or co-authored five books and more than 770 peer-reviewed publications and holds 68 patents. His research has been cited more than 55,000 times.


Congratulations to him for his present prize and wishing him all the best for a Nobel Prize nomination in the future. :D
