  • Descrição: Following a PhD with the prominent physical organic chemist Saul Winstein at the University of California, Los Angeles, and a postdoctoral fellowship with the future Nobel laureate Vladimir Prelog at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, the 25-year-old Heck joined Hercules (now Ashland) in Wilmington, Delaware, in 1956. Today, undergraduates learn the Heck reaction in class and laboratory; industrial chemists practise it to make tonnes of drugs against asthma, diabetes and AIDS, among others.
