Monday's Molecule #39

Today's molecule is complex but it has a very simple common name. The common name is not sufficient—you must supply the formal IUPAC name to win the prize. There's a direct connection between this Monday's Molecule and Wednesday's Nobel Laureate.

The reward (free lunch) goes to the person who correctly identifies the molecule and the Nobel Laureate(s). Previous free lunch winners are ineligible for one month from the time they first collected the prize. There's only one (Marc) ineligible candidate for this Wednesday's reward since many recent winners haven't collected their prize. The prize is a free lunch at the Faculty Club.

In preparation for the beginning of classes in three weeks I'm going to start requesting email responses. Send your guess to Sandwalk (sandwalk(at) and I'll pick the first email message that correctly identifies the molecule and the Nobel Laureate. All responses will be posted tomorrow along with the time that their message was received on my server. This way I may select multiple winners if several people get it right.

We have a winner! Oliveoyl was the first one to correctly identify the molecule and the Nobel Laureate. She will be collecting her prize in September.

Devin Trudeau also got both right a few hours later and Daniel wasn't far behind.
