nobel-

STOCKHOLM: 2022 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for three people. American researchers Carolyn R Bertossi, K Barry Sharpless and Denmark's Mortel Meldel are the recipients of the award.

The Nobel was awarded for the development of click chemistry and bioorthogonal chemistry.

Their discovery paved the way for the easy formulation of new drugs. The prize money of Rs 7.5 crore will be equally shared between the three.

They devised click chemistry as a way to make difficult chemical processes easier. Click chemistry occurs when the molecular building blocks easily fuse together. This is the second time Sharpless has won the Chemistry Nobel. The first Nobel was in 2001.
