Theodor Svedberg was a Swedish chemist born in Flerang, Sweden on August 30th, 1884. He won the Nobel Prize for chemistry for his studies in the field of colloids and also for the invention of the ultracentrifuge in 1926.
Glenn Seaborg was born in Ishpeming, Michigan on April 19th, 1912. He was an American scientist who had a Scottish lineage. He won the Nobel Laureate in Chemistry in 1951 for his many discoveries in the field of Transuranium metals. He has many things named after him from the element Seaborgium to an asteroid called 4856 Seaborg.
Otto Wallach is the German Chemist who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on alicyclic compounds. One of his major contributions that he is known for is his isoprene rule and study of terpene which is used in turpentine today.
Otto Hahn a German chemist was one of the first scientists to break new ground in the field of radioactivity and radiochemistry. He won the Nobel Prize in 1944 for his discovery of nuclear fission. Due to his work he is often called 'the father of nuclear chemistry' and the 'founder of the atomic age'.
Alfred Werner was a Swiss chemist who won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1913 for his research on coordination chemistry. He proposed the octahedral configuration of transition metal complexes and became the first inorganic chemist to win the prize.
V. Ramakrishnan is one of three scientists who was awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. He was awarded the prize for his studies of the structure and function of the ribosome. His research is important in the field of medicine and hopefully will help develop new antibiotic cures.
Rutherford is considered to be the father of nuclear physics, being the first person to split the atom in 1917. He discovered that all atoms had their positive charge concentrated in a nucleus. He was awarded the Noble Prize for his work in the field.
