Subject: Nobel prize winners list

Dear Dr. Govindjee,

Thank you for your messages. I just returned from a two weeks vacation and was
not able to respond to you earlier. Please excuse me.

On 23rd of December I had tried to put my message on the British node of the
listserver. However, it rejected it. It also did so with my earlier message
which was the reason why I previously had used the US node. I then put it on the
biosci at net.bio.net again. I thought that I had then received the message on my
account but right now am unable to retrieve it in my files here.
Anyway, I attach the original message below. Since the US node is not reliable
right now and the British node rejects my messages it might be best if you put
it on the British node. By the way, I received the message you had put on the
listserver in end of December. So, that way it should work. Please just strip
the lines with the Christmas greetings from below the message.
Best regards, Alex.

Subject: Nobel prize winners in photosynthesis

Dear Colleagues,

A couple of weeks ago we requested some help from you in putting together a list
of Nobel prize winners in the area of photosynthesis and related fields with
impact on photosynthesis research.
We decided to put the information we got in three different lists and
share the results with you:

List #1: Photosynthesis related research, including chlorophyll and carotenoid
chemistry.
List #2: Noble prize winners who worked in photosynthesis but got their prize in
other areas.
List #3: Areas with impact on photosynthesis research.


List 1:

Richard Martin Wilstaetter .......................... 1915 (Chemistry)
Chlorophyll purification and structure, carotenoids, anthocyanins.

Hans Fischer ........................................ 1930 (Chemistry)
Haemin synthesis, chlorophyll chemistry.

Paul Karrer ......................................... 1937 (Chemistry)
Carotenoid structure, flavins, vitamin B2.

Richard Kuhn ........................................ 1938 (Chemistry)
Carotenoids, vitamins.

Melvin Calvin ....................................... 1961 (Chemistry)
Carbon dioxide assimilation.

Robert Burns Woodward ............................... 1965 (Chemistry)
Total synthesis of vitamin B12, chlorophyll, and other natural products.

Peter Mitchell ...................................... 1978 (Chemistry)
Oxidative and photosynthetic phosphorylation, chemiosmotic theory.

Hartmut Michel, Robert Huber, Johannes Deisenhofer .. 1988 (Chemistry)
X-ray structure of the bacterial photosynthetic reaction center.

Rudolph Marcus ......................................... 1992 (Chemistry)
Electron transfer theory. Applied his theory to the primary photosynthetic
charge separation.


List 2:

James Franck
(together with Gustav Hertz) ........................ 1925 (Physics)
Electron-atom collisions. Later developed the Franck-Condon principle and worked
in photosynthesis.

Otto Warburg ........................................ 1931 (Physiology/Medicine)
The respiratory enzyme.

Sir George Porter
(together with R. G. W. Norrish and Manfred Eigen) .. 1967 (Chemistry)
Flash photolysis (among other systems he studied aromatic molecules and Chl).


List 3:

Theodor Svedberg .................................... 1926 (Chemistry)
The ultracentrifuge.

Heinrich Otto Wieland ............................... 1927 (Chemistry)
Bile acids, oxidation processes in the living cell, dehydrogenase.

Albert Szent-Gyoergyi von Nagyrapolit ............... 1937 (Physiology/Medicine)
The biological combustion process, vitamin C, the flavins.

Artturi Ilmari Virtanen ............................. 1945 (Chemistry)
Nitrogen fixation.

Arne Wilhelm Kaurin Tiselius ........................ 1948 (Chemistry)
Electrophoresis and adsorption analysis.

Archer John Porter Martin,
and Richard Lawrence Millington Synge ............... 1952 (Chemistry)
Partition chromatography.

Fritz Albert Lipmann and Hans Adolf Krebs ........... 1953 (Physiology/Medicine)
Coenzyme A, ATP, the Krebs cycle.

Axel Hugo Theodor Theorell .......................... 1955 (Physiology/Medicine)
Oxidation enzymes (among others: cytochromes).

Louis Leloir ........................................ 1970 (Chemistry)
Carbohydrate biosynthesis in plants and animals.


Additional sources of information we used:
"Nobel Lectures" Including Presentation Speeches and Laureates' Biographies;
Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, and Physics; Elsevier Publishing Company,
Amsterdam 1972. (Series of 4 volumes each in each subject, covers all nobel
prizes up to 1972)
"Les Prix Nobel" The Nobel Prizes, Nobel Prizes, Presentations, Biographies and
Lectures; Yearbook of the Nobel Foundation; Norstedts Tryckeri AB, Stockholm.

In compiling the lists we had the problem of where to draw the borderline
between the photosynthesis field and other fields, which is quite difficult in
many cases.
One can always argue wether this or that name should be listed or not, or in
which list he should appear. Therefore this is a rather personal list of
ourselves, and everybody is welcome to pick and compile his own list.

Finally we want to thank all of you who contributed to the list by replying to
our previous requests.

With best wishes for Christmas and the New Year,

Alex Angerhofer and Govindjee.
