This year it was the trio, Carolyn R. Bertozzi, Morten Meldal and K. Barry Sharpless who took home the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

They did so for their developments in click chemistry and bioorthogonal chemistry.

In the past, when you wanted to build molecules with different properties to produce medicines, for example, you needed to create a chemical reaction each time.

Something that took time and sometimes was even impossible.

- This year's award winner came up with the perfect solution.

A connection that you can put on exactly the molecules that you want to connect, says Victoria Dyring, program manager Vetenskap.
