By George A. Olah
How did a tender guy who grew up in Hungary among the 2 international Wars move from cleansing rubble and relocating pianos on the finish of worldwide struggle II within the Budapest Opera apartment to profitable the Nobel Prize in Chemistry? George Olah takes us on a striking trip from Budapest to Cleveland to Los Angeles-with a stopover in Stockholm, in fact. An leading edge scientist, George Olah is actually special, whose notable learn into super powerful acids and their new chemistry yielded what's now generally called superacidic "magic acid chemistry."
A lifetime of Magic Chemistry is an intimate examine the numerous trips that George Olah has traveled-from his early examine and educating in Hungary, to his circulate to North the USA the place, in the course of his years in undefined, he persisted his examine of the elusive cations of carbon, to his go back to academia in Cleveland, and, eventually, his circulate to la, the place he outfitted the Loker Hydrocarbon learn Institute to discover new strategies to the grave challenge of the world's diminishing traditional oil and gasoline assets and to mitigate international warming via recycling carbon dioxide into hydrocarbon fuels and items. Professor Olah invitations the reader to benefit from the tale of his amazing path-marked by means of labor, mind's eye, and endless quests for discovery-which ultimately resulted in the Nobel Prize. Intertwining his learn and instructing with a different own writing variety really makes A lifetime of Magic Chemistry a fascinating learn. His autobiography not just touches on his exhilarating lifestyles and pursuit for brand spanking new chemistry but additionally displays at the broader that means of technological know-how in our perpetual look for figuring out and knowledge.
