This year’s award recipient, H. Bernhard Schlegel, is credited with promoting computational chemistry through the development and dissemination of algorithms that helped open the field to nonexperts. In particular, his exploration of potential-energy surfaces for chemical reactions has resulted in methodologies incorporated into theoretical and computational chemistry software now standard in chemical research.

Schlegel, 61, a professor of chemistry at Wayne State University, is perhaps best known as . . .
