The Nobel Prize in Chemistry will be announced on October 7, 2015.
The results so far suggest an American chemist in the organic field will win the 2015 Nobel Prize. The top three write-in suggestions are: Antoine Fécant, George M. Whitesides, and Omar M. Yaghi.
Looking at other predictions for the next Nobel Laureates, Thomson Reuters 2015 Citation Laureates for example suggests Carolyn R. Bertozzi, who contributed to bioorthogonal chemistry, or Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna, who developed the CRISPR/cas 9 method for genome editing, have a good chance.
