The Nobel Prize for Chemistry was awarded on Wednesday 5 October 2016 to three scientists for their work on controlling molecules. Amongst them a researcher from the University of Strasbourg: Jean-Pierre Sauvage.
Two other scientists also participated in this work: Scotsman, J. Fraser Stoddart, of Northwestern University (USA) and Dutchman, Bernard L. Feringa, from the University of Groningen (Netherlands).
