Re: Nobel predictions
In preparation for this week’s announcement of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, a group of prognosticators, including C&EN’s own Matt Davenport and Lauren Wolf, held a webinar on Sept. 28 to discuss their expectations heading into the event. Joining the conversation, webinar attendees took to social media to share their own thoughts.
