While poking around the web looking for full-text versions of Djerassi's original papers I discovered this list of the "10 best organic chemists of all time." I couldn't help but notice that many of you, Readers, will know the reasons for nomination if not the actual names.
I smile as I read these names and their contributions. They are an amazing bunch of minds. I can't comment about the drinking: I have no first hand experience with any of them.
I didn't find the Djereassi papers, by the way, but I think I have them in my office. Somewhere.
