Sir Fraser Stoddart 


Sir Fraser Stoddart shared the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Jean-Pierre Sauvage and Bernard Feringa "for the design and synthesis of molecular machines."

Sir Fraser gave the plenary address at the 2017 ACA meeting in New Orleans, "How Crystallography Helped to Create a New Bond in Chemistry." He calls this new bond the mechanical bond. In his inspiring talk he detailed his journey of over 50 years in science. In conclusion, he said that he would like to be remembered for mentorship of over 400 students from over 40 different nationalities, not for any prize.
