He or she completed his or her first independent studies at 18, received a doctorate at 24, and was appointed Assistant Professor at 27. He or she made a lasting impact on inorganic chemistry: In 2001, 82 years after his or her death, he or she was listed as co-author of a peer-reviewed paper. The researchers had used crystal samples prepared by the chemist we are looking for.
