Chemistry Department Information
Chemistry at Caltech is steeped in a tradition of excellence--alumnus Linus Pauling, awarded the Nobel Prize in 1954, revolutionized the field with his insights into the nature of the chemical bond; alumnus Edwin McMillan was awarded the Nobel in 1951 for his discovery of element 93 (neptunium); and alumnus William Lipscombwon in 1976 for his studies of the structure of boranes. Arnold Beckman, founder of Beckman Instruments, and Gordon Moore, founder of Intel and originator of Moore's Law, both earned their doctoral degrees in chemistry at Caltech.
