Roald Hoffmann, PhD

Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, United States 
Theoretical chemistry
"Roald Hoffmann" "Cornell"
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1981 was awarded jointly to Kenichi Fukui and Roald Hoffmann "for their theories, developed independently, concerning the course of chemical reactions"

In 1962 I received my doctorate, as the first Harvard Ph.D. of both Lipscomb and Gouterman.

Mean distance: 6.78
