Roald Hoffmann is an American theoretical chemist who was the joint recipient of the 1981 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his theory concerning the course of chemical reactions.

Hoffmann was born in Poland and had to experience traumatic experiences at a labour camp as a child during the World War II. However, he along with his mother escaped and subsequently moved to the United States of America after the World War II. He earned good grades and scholarships in school that allowed him to pursue higher education in reputed institutions like the Columbia University and Harvard University. He graduated with a post graduate degree in Physics and PhD in Chemical Physics. His work with Robert B.

Since 1965 he is associated with the Cornell University, currently serving as the Frank H. T. Rhodes Professor of Humane Letters Emeritus. He is also an accomplished playwright and poet whose works have been published in multiple languages.
