Nobel Prize in Chemistry
Making complex chemical reactions easy is the main goal of the Click Chemistry that won Morten Meldal, Barry Sharpless, and Carolyn Bertozzi this year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
Click Chemistry Started around 2000
Barry Sharpless concept form of simple and reliable chemistry where reactions are quick without unwanted by-products.
What is Click Chemistry?
In this, molecular building blocks snap together quickly and efficiently. It is utilised in the development of pharmaceuticals, for mapping DNA and creating materials that are more fit for purpose.
Click Chemistry: A major discovery
Meldal and Sharpless provided the crown of the Click Chemistry- the copper catalysed azide-alkyne cycloaddition.
Bertozzi Gave New Dimension
Bertozzi has advanced click chemistry and begun applying it to living things. Her bioorthogonal processes happen without interfering with the cell's regular chemistry.
Barry Sharpless 2nd Nobel Prize
This is the second chemistry Nobel for Barry Sharpless who took the lead in the project of Click Chemistry.
