Nobel Chemistry Odds
Paul Bracher over at Chembark has posted an extensive list of Nobel odds, just in time for tomorrow's announcement. For the record, I think that if it's a more biologically-oriented award - and hey, in recent years that's just what it's been - then Roger Tsien et al., for green fluorescent protein, is my guess. If it's straight organic chemistry, then my guess is Suzuki/Heck/ and whoever else they can decide on for transition-metal coupling reactions. In physical chemistry, I'd have to go with Richard Zare, for laser studies and various instrumental techniques.
Keep in mind, though, that my track record is pretty ugly. Of course, so is everyone else's.
