Yuan T. Lee - Biography yuan T. lee Biography. yuan Tseh lee was born on November 19, 1936 in Hsinchu,Taiwan. lee and his wife, Bernice Wu, whom he first met in elementary school http://www.nobel.se/chemistry/laureates/1986/lee-bio.html
Extractions: He started his early education while Taiwan was under Japanese occupation - a result of a war between China and Japan in 1894. His elementary education was disrupted soon after it started during World War II while the city populace was relocated to the mountains to avoid the daily bombing by the Allies. It was not until after the war when Taiwan was returned to China that he was able to attend school normally as a third year student in grade school. His elementary and secondary education in Hsinchu was rather colorful and full of fun. In elementary school, he was the second baseman on the school's baseball team as well as a member of the ping-pong team which won the little league championship in Taiwan. In high school he played on the tennis team besides playing trombone in the marching band.

Extractions: A burning flamea little everyday miracle that has astonished and fascinated most of us. A chemical reaction that produces heat and light and that during historical times has modified the conditions of life for mankind and made developing civilizations possible even on our northerly latitudes. But at the same time also a chemical transformation in which the products formed slowly have modified our atmosphere and most likely will also affect the earth's climate. Press conference and reception at San Francisco Airport for Yuan T. Lee, Nobel Prize recipient with Melvin Calvin (left) and Glenn Seaborg (right). From the point of view of natural science a burning flame is an intriguingly complex phenomenon. Oxygen molecules in air react with carbon and hydrogen in organic molecules. A manifold of primary products are formed, often unstable and reactive. Atoms are torn away from their parent molecules. The products of one reaction become the reactants of another. Dozens or even hundreds of molecular reactions occur in parallel. It is a scientific challenge to unravel the details of these transformations.

The Academic Senate bestowed its highest honor Feb. 22 on Yuan T. Lee, whose many previous awards include the 1986 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. A UC university professor emeritus, professor emeritus of chemistry and principal investigator at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, Lee is currently president of Academia Sinica, Taiwan's leading academic and research institution. Lee received the 1998 Clark Kerr Award for Distinguished Leadership in Higher Education at a dinner hosted by the Academic Senate and the College of Chemistry. The dinner followed a Shorenstein seminar, "Homecoming: A Conversation with Y.T. Lee," hosted by the Institute of East Asian Studies at Alumni House.

Extractions: This years Nobel Prize in economics marks the 18th time a Berkeley scholar has been named a Nobel Laureate 17 October 2001 The announcement of George Akerlofs Nobel Prize in economics is historic coming as it does a year after Berkeley economist Daniel McFadden won the prize and as the campus celebrates the 100th birthday of the late Ernest O. Lawrence, its first Nobelist. As Chancellor Berdahl noted at a campus press conference last week announcing its latest laureate, Lawrences prize in physics in 1939 was the first Nobel Prize ever awarded a faculty member of a public university in America, and today were celebrating the most recent Nobel Prize awarded to a faculty member of a public university in America. There have been 18 Nobel winners in all at Berkeley. Here is an introduction to these scholars and the accomplishments honored by the Nobel committee.

Yuan T. Lee - CIRS 1986 nobel Laureate in Chemistry with Dudley Herschbach and John Polanyi for ThanhL. Nguyen, Alexander M. Mebel, Nadia Balucani, yuan T. lee, Frank Stahl http://www.cirs.net/researchers/Chemistry/LEE.htm
Extractions: As a postdoctoral researcher, Lee experimented with and further developed Herschbach's invention of the "crossed molecular beam technique"a technique (derived from elementary particle physics) in which beams of molecules are brought together at supersonic speeds under controlled conditions to allow detailed observation of the events that occur during chemical reactions. Lee extended Herschbach's technique, introducing mass spectroscopy to identify the products resulting from the reactions of oxygen and fluorine atoms with complex organic compounds.
