Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2010

See Knoevenagel Reaction for details of Cinchona Alkaloids and Benjamin List.

Cinchona Alkaloids are already linked to two Nobel Prizes in Chemistry (2001 Barry Sharpless and 2021 Benjamin List). There are for sure more to come. The Suzuki Cross-Coupling (2010 Nobel Prize) is even possible in a chiral version with Cinchona Alkaloids. There are examples of the Suzuki Cross-Coupling Reaction listed in the Buchler Chiral Catalyst Database.

Buchler is the top supplier of Quinine of the Agrochemistry industry. Quinine is used as a catalyst in various chemical reactions.
