The Top 100 Chemists?
I'm never sure of how useful these rankings are, but here's Thomson Reuters' rankings of the top 100 chemists of the last ten years. This is based on publications and their impact/citation rate.
Looking over the list, I think that there are some artifacts in it, and boy, don't metal-organic frameworks and nanotech just rate like crazy? But it's an interesting starting point for discussion, especially when you note how (relatively) few organic and synthetic organic chemists make the upper reaches. Thoughts?
