Sir Harold Kroto is an English chemist and the 1996 Nobel Prize recipient in Chemistry. He currently serves as Francis Eppes Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Florida State University. He researches the high-resolution electronic spectra of free radicals produced by flash photolysis (the breaking of chemical bonds by light), as well as carbon dioxide and the molecules that contain chains of carbon atoms with numerous multiple bonds. Kroto's Nobel Prize was based on his co-discovery of buckminsterfullerene, a form of pure carbon better known as "buckyballs." He is presently researching nanoscience and nanotechnology. (#23326)
