Robert Floyd Curl Jr. is an American chemist who won the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of the nanomaterial buckminsterfullerene. Born in the early 1930s in Alice, Texas, he mostly grew up in San Antonio, where he completed his schooling. On receiving a chemistry set as a gift from his parents at the age of nine he became captivated by the subject and decided to become a chemist when he grew up, a goal from which he did not waiver. Ultimately he received his BS degree in Chemistry from Rice Institute (later University) and PhD from University of California, Berkeley. After a short stint at Harvard University as postdoctoral fellow, he joined Rice as an Assistant Professor and slowly worked his way up to become the Chairman of the Chemistry Department towards the end of his career. Currently, he is holding the position of University Professor Emeritus, Pitzer-Schlumberger Professor of Natural Sciences Emeritus, and Professor of Chemistry Emeritus at Rice University. Over the years, he has collaborated with many well-known scholars on various projects. In 1996, he, together with Richard Smalley and Harold Kroto, received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of nanomaterial buckminsterfullerene.
