Sir John Warcup Cornforth was a Nobel Prize-winning chemist who was born a century ago (7 September 1917).
Sir John was known for his work in the field of stereochemistry, the study of how the spatial arrangement of atoms affects the properties of a chemical compound. He went on to study at the University of Oxford and work as a professor at the universities of Warwick, Suffolk and California in Los Angeles.
In celebration of what would have been his 100th birthday, Sir John has been honoured with a Google Doodle.

A collaboration between the Fox, Scott and Gibson groups has been published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. The team were inspired by how small helical antifreeze proteins in Nature enable extreomophiles to survive low temperatures, where other species would not survive. Rather than using traditional peptide/protein chemistry, the team used self-assembled metallohelicates which have similar dimensions to a small alpha helix, and found some which were remarkably potent at stopping ice crystal growth ; a major technological challenge in applications from wind farms, to aircraft to cryopreservation. Modelling studies showed that the underlying activity could be linked the patches of hydrophobicity (water liking) and hydrophobicity (water hating).
