STOCKHOLM – This year’s Nobel Prize in chemistry has been awarded in equal parts to Carolyn R. Bertozzi, Morten Meldal and K. Barry Sharpless for developing a way to “glue molecules together”.

Hans Ellegren, secretary general of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, announced the winners Wednesday at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.

Last year, the prize was awarded to scientists Benjamin List and David WC MacMillan for finding an ingenious and environmentally cleaner way to create molecules that the Nobel committee said “has been of great benefit.” great benefit to mankind.”

A week of Nobel Prize announcements begins Monday with a prize in medicine honoring a scientist who unlocked the secrets of Neanderthal DNA. Three scientists jointly won Tuesday’s physics prize for showing that tiny particles can stay connected even when separated.

They continue with chemistry on Wednesdays and literature on Thursdays. The 2022 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on Friday and the economic prize on October 10.
