Nobel and beer

Two Nobel prize-winning chemists have been immortalised on the walls of a brewery, on the site of the laboratory in Leeds where they made their momentous discovery. A J P Martin and R L M Synge won the Nobel prize for chemistry in 1952, in recognition of their invention of partition chromatography, now a widely used chemical analytical technique.

Members of their families, and many eminent chemists from the University and elsewhere, came to see the chemistry heritage plaque unveiled at the Bass Brewery at Torridon, Headingley.
