and the benefits of the scientific method to improve the well-being of humanKind and objective shared by the initiatives of my colleagues in chemistry and related. In order to bring information, invention into practice I blog on Innovation and Management with a distinct focus on Materials Science (Technology) and Engineering.

The French Journal, "La Recherche award for Chemistry 2011" goes to a team from the Co-ordination Chemistry Lab,Univ Paul Sabatier Toulouse .
The winning paper :
"A novel approach for fluorescent thermometry and thermal imaging purposes using spin crossover nanoparticles" was published by the Royal Society for Chemistry (RSC) in it's Journal of Materials Chemistry by

This post arose from my concern that my Nobel Prize widget was dated 2009 and did not up-date automatically. I have instead added RSS feed (1). The feed covers all prizes. My guess is that the Nobel site webmasters feel that scientists and engineers must have a wide cultural background, don't you agree? I do.
This years Nobel in Chemistry goes to Dan Shechtman. for Quasi crystal discovery after a 25 year struggle for acceptance by the Scientific Community.
To celebrate this years prize is a true example of how science can and should be done. The finding and the work leading to its acceptance are truly interdisciplinary covering not only chemistry, metallurgy-metallic glasses materials science, microscopy (again) but also highly modern mathematics (Penrose patterns ) with a background history in art and design (Medieval Islamic patterns)
. Cf. The video on my wall above where this is particularly well explained, by Professor Sven Lidin, Member of the Nobel Committee for Chemistry, in the interviewed by freelance journalist Joanna Rose about the 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to Dan Shechtman "for the discovery of quasicrystals".
