The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1901 Presentation Speech Presentation Speech by the former Rector of the National Archives Dr. C.T. Odhner, President of  the Royal Swedish Academy of   Sciences , on December 10, 1901 Your Royal Highnesses, Ladies and Gentlemen. The Academy has awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry to Jacobus Henricus van 't Hoff, Professor in the University of  Berlin, for his pioneering work on chemical dynamics and osmotic pressure in solutions. As a result of his investigations in the fields of atomic and molecular theory van 't Hoff has made the most important  discoveries in theoretical chemistry since Dalton's time. With regard to atomic theory van 't Hoff, following an idea put forward by Pasteur, advanced the hypothesis that the  elementary atoms have attachment points geometrically oriented in space - a hypothesis which in so far as carbon  compounds are concerned led to the theory of the asymmetry of carbon atoms and to the founding of stereochemistry.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
