Kyoko Nozaki, University of Tokyo, Japan:

In a spare hour, I do culinary experiments (with success rate below 30 %).

Kendall N. Houk, University of California, Los Angeles, USA:

The most amazing chemistry adventure in my career was hosting R. B.Woodward in my apartment in 1967 to watch the Boston Red Sox play in the World Series on TV.

Shu-Li You, Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, China:

I like refereeing because it is the only way to keep scientific publishing working.

Oliver Reiser, University of Regensburg, Germany:

The most amusing chemistry adventure in my career was being reprimanded by a female postdoc for wearing shorts in my office “I am not used to professors wearing shorts” (… on a hot summer day on a Saturday).

Ying-Chun Chen, Sichuan University and Third Military Medical University, China:

The secret of being a successful scientist is to keep reading and thinking.

Julius Rebek, Jr., The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, USA:

I would have liked to have discovered the origins of the genetic code.
