Ratner on his current scientific goals:“I’d like to make a real contribution to the preservation of our environment. It could come from scientific work, or even political work, but we need to preserve our home.

What his colleagues say:“In several areas of chemical science, Ratner has permanently changed the way chemists do chemistry. Ratner’s imaginative ideas, insights, methods, and useful formulations permit chemists to understand, calculate, interpret, and use theoretical methods.”—Josef Michl, University of Colorado, Boulder
