Strolling with a skeptical biochemist
Yippee... It's vitamin C - ascorbic acid (reduced form). So your Nobel prize winner is either Albert Szent-Gyorgyi or Linus Pauling. At least when it comes to vitamin C, I hope it's the former and not the latter :-)
You're right about the molecule but wrong about the Nobel Laureate.
Oh well, if you'd have mentioned that Wednesday's prize winner was for work done on a macromolecule.....
