Elias James Corey is a distinguished American organic chemist who was awarded the ‘Nobel Prize in Chemistry’ in 1990 for his scientific contributions in the development of theory and methodology of organic synthesis, particularly retrosynthetic analysis. His book ‘The Logic of Chemical Synthesis’ consists of a proper elucidation of the concept of retrosynthetic analysis, which is a systematic method of chemical synthesis involving effective transformation of a target molecule to simpler precursor structures. Through his continuous scientific research and development that covers essentially all fields of organic chemistry he substantially helped in advancing the science of organic synthesis. He also had a deep impact in the advancement of biochemistry and modern medicinal science. This saw development of number of therapeutic drugs like ginkgolide B and prostaglandins. Some of his major scientific contributions are discovery of many synthetic procedures, applying computer analysis in designing chemical synthesis and chemical synthesis of numerous complex bioactive compounds. These revolutionary works of Corey aided the chemists in developing effective synthetic forms of organic chemicals. It also improved theoretical comprehension of the way these chemicals work. At present he is the ‘Sheldon Emory Professor Emeritus’ at the ‘Harvard University’. Besides the Nobel Price, he has received several other awards including ‘Linus Pauling Award’ (1973), ‘Franklin Medal’ (1978), ‘National Medal of Science’ (1988) and the ‘Priestley Medal’ (2004). In 1998 Corey was inducted into the ‘Alpha Chi Sigma’ Hall of Fame.
