Extractions: Bolton is a once prosperous but then (the fifties) decaying northern English town which is rightfully proud of its legendary contributions to the industrial revolution - the likes of Samuel Crompton and Richard Arkwright were Boltonians. Indeed we lived in Arkwright St. and I shall always remember walking to school each morning past the windows of cotton mills through which I could see the vast rows of massive looms and spinning frames operated by women who had been working from at least six o'clock in the morning, if not earlier. My efforts to merge into the background meant, among other things such as fighting (literally) for survival, speaking only English (all real Englishmen expect others to speak English) - though I allowed myself to absorb just enough German to understand what my parents were saying about me when they spoke German. One specific memory was that when I did particularly poorly at French one year my Father gave me a very large French dictionary for my birthday - was I pleased!!! My name seems to have its origins in Silesia where my father's family originated and there is a town in Poland now called Krotoszyn (then Krotoschin). My father's family came from Bojanowo and set up a shop in Berlin where my father was born in 1900. The original family house, which was then a shop, still exists in the main square in Bojanowo. I have an old photograph which shows the sign "I. Krotoschiner" in gothic characters emblazened over the window. I visited the town recently and, apart from cars rather than horsedrawn carts and the sign, little has changed - the Hotel Centralny is now the Restauracja Centralny and the aerials on the roofs are still there!

Smalley and Robert F. Curl, Jr. , was awarded the 1996 Nobel Prize for Chemistry for their joint discovery of the carbon compounds called fullerenes Kroto received a Ph.D. from the University of Sheffield in 1964. He joined the faculty of the University of Sussex in 1967 and became a professor of chemistry there in 1985. In the course of his research, Kroto used microwave spectroscopy to discover long, chainlike carbon molecules in the atmospheres of stars and gas clouds. Wishing to study the vaporization of carbon in order to find out how these carbon chains formed, he went to Rice University (Houston, Texas), where Smalley had designed an instrument, the laser-supersonic cluster beam apparatus, that could vaporize almost any known material and then be used to study the resulting clusters of atoms or molecules. In a series of experiments carried out in September 1985, the two men, along with Robert Curl, Smalley's associate at Rice, generated clusters of carbon atoms by vaporizing graphite in an atmosphere of helium. Some of the spectra they obtained from the vaporization corresponded to previously unknown forms of carbon containing even numbers of carbon atoms ranging from 40 to more than 100 atoms. Most of the new carbon molecules had a structure of C

Extractions: Professor Sir Harold W KROTO Chairman: Please allow me to introduce to you Professor Sir Harold Kroto, Fellow of the Royal Society: a distinguished scientist, a Nobel Prize winner, an educator, and an artist. As a result of the discovery of C60, new carbon structures have become known, and a new branch of chemistry has developed. The research carried out at the University of Sussex by Professor Kroto and his colleagues encompasses the basic chemistry of the fullerenes and nanotubes - thin carbon-based tubes with closed ends, which are one of the main focuses of Professor Kroto's current research. The applications of fullerene research lead us into 21st century technology, with (for example) superconducting salts of C60, new three-dimensional polymers, and carbon nanotube integrated circuits. From a theoretical point of view, the discovery of fullerenes has influenced our conception of such widely separated scientific problems as the galactic carbon cycle and classical aromaticity, a keystone of theoretical chemistry. These advances in scientific knowledge owe much to Professor Kroto's long and distinguished career as a research scientist, and his dedication to wide-ranging fundamental research, covering chemistry, physics, materials science and astrophysics.

Extractions: Kroto, Sir Harold W. I was the kid with the funny name in my form. That is one of the earliest memories I have of school (except for being forced to finish school dinners). Other kids had typical Lancashire names such as Chadderton, Entwistle, Fairhurst, Higginbottom, Mottershead and Thistlethwaite though I must admit that there were the odd Smith, Jones and Brown. My name at that time was Krotoschiner (my father changed it to Kroto in 1955 so it is now occasionally thought, by some, to be Japanese). I felt as though I must have come from outer space - or maybe they did! I now realise that I had made a continual subconscious effort to blend as best I could into the environment by making my behaviour as identical as possible to that of the other kids. This was not easy indeed it was almost impossible with a couple of somewhat eccentric parents (in particular an extrovertly gregarious mother) who were born in Berlin and came to Britain as refugees in their late 30's. Bolton is a once prosperous but then (the fifties) decaying northern English town which is rightfully proud of its legendary contributions to the industrial revolution - the likes of Samuel Crompton and Richard Arkwright were Boltonians. Indeed we lived in Arkwright St. and I shall always remember walking to school each morning past the windows of cotton mills through which I could see the vast rows of massive looms and spinning frames operated by women who had been working from at least six o'clock in the morning, if not earlier.

Extractions: Nobel Prize Winning Chemists Sir Harold W. Kroto The Nobel Prize In Chemistry 1996 Sir Harold W. Kroto was born in Berlin Germany in 1936. His father's family came from Bojanowo and set up a shop in Berlin where his father was born in 1900. He started to develop an unhealthy interest in chemistry during enjoyable lessons with Dr. Wilf Jary who fascinated him most with his ability, when using a gas blowpipe to melt lead, to blow continuously without apparently stopping to breathe in. He, like almost all chemists he knew, was also attracted by the smells and bangs that endowed chemistry with that slight but charismatic element of danger which is now banned from the classroom. He became ever more fascinated by chemistry particular organic chemistry. Sir Harold had been keen on organic chemistry when he arrived at Sussex but as the university course progressed he started to get interested in quantum mechanics and when he was introduced to spectroscopy, he was hooked. He had a problem as he really liked organic chemistry, but in the end he decided to do a Ph. D. in the Spectroscopy of Free Radicals produced by Flash Photolysis-with Richard Dixon. George Porter was Professor of Physical Chemistry at that time so there was a lot of flashing going on at Sheffield. In 1965 after a further year of flash photolysis/spectroscopy in Don Ramsay's laboratory, where I discovered a singlet electronic transition of the NCN radical and worked on pyridine which turned out to have a nonplanar excited state, I transferred to Cec Costain's laboratory because he had developed a fascination for microwave spectroscopy. There he worked on the rotational spectrum of NCN3. Sometimes Takeshi Oka would be on the next spectrometer-working next to someone with such an exceptional blend of theoretical and experimental expertise did not help to alleviate the occasional sense of inadequacy. He really learned quantum mechanics from an intensive course that Jon Hougen gave at Carleton University. Whenever he was in difficulty theoretically, Jim Watson helped him out.

Extractions: Sir Harold W. Kroto Nobel de Química dio conferencias en la UNAM Patricia Vega Para sir Harold W. Kroto, premio Nobel de Química 1996, la ciencia es ``abstracta, pura, perfecta''. Sin embargo, lo que más le preocupa es ``no estar seguro de tener fe en que la raza humana utilizará la tecnología que se desprende de la ciencia de una manera juiciosa, ya que en estos tiempos las filosofías socioeconómicas (el capitalismo) están fuera de control. ``(...) hay científicos que creen que deben dedicarse sólo a su actividad y dejar los problemas éticos para otras personas; ésa es una negación absoluta de su deber. Los científicos tienen que reconocer que son los únicos que entienden el alcance de lo que han hecho, y que por ello tienen la oportunidad de entender todas las implicaciones. Por ello, los científicos tenemos que participar, de lleno, en la toma de decisiones políticas e industriales; lo que me preocupa es que hay consideraciones financieras a las que se les da más peso...'' Laureado por su descubrimiento de nuevos arreglos moleculares del carbono (carbono 60) que nunca habían sido observados y tienen una forma similar a la de un balón de futbol o un domo geodésico, Kroto llegó a México invitado por la Academia Mexicana de Ciencias para ofrecer dos conferencias magistrales en la UNAM, dentro del programa Conferencias Nobel que realiza anualmente la AMC. Para el académico de la Universidad de Sussex, Inglaterra, nacido en 1939, resulta ``indiscutible'' el papel predominante que la ciencia y la tecnología han tenido y tendrán en el próximo siglo. Sin embargo, ``se da el caso de políticos, funcionarios de gobierno y personas en diversas esferas de la sociedad que deben tomar decisiones sin la preparación para entender la tecnología que originó los diferentes adelantos sobre los cuales hay que decidir''.

Extractions: Sir Harold W. Kroto shared the 1996 Nobel Prize in chemistry for the discovery of "fullerenes"previously unidentified forms of carbon molecules. Using microwave spectroscopy, Kroto had discovered an abundance of long-chained carbon molecules in interstellar space that he postulated had been formed in the stellar atmospheres of red giant stars. Experimenting in 1985 with the vaporization and cluster formation of carbon in a simulated atmosphere, he and his colleagues noted that certain dominant cluster sizes, which were so stable that they suspected a highly symmetrical, closed-shell structure. Identification of the fullerenes opened a new branch of chemistry with consequences in such diverse areas as astrochemistry, physics, superconductivity, and materials science. Kroto was born in Cambridgeshire, England, the son of refugees from Berlin. He attended the University of Sheffield, earning a Ph.D. there (1964) in high-resolution spectroscopy. He began his academic career as a lecturer at the University of Sussex in 1967, becoming Royal Society Research Professor in 1991. His honors include election to the Royal Society (1990), the International Prize for New Materials from the American Physical Society (1992), and the Hewlett Packard Europhysics Prize (1994). He was knighted in 1996.
