Abstract

Upon retirement from his professorship in medical biochemistry at Gothenburg University, Ulf Lagerkvist (1926-2010) wrote several books about great discoveries in chemistry and biology and examined both their awarded and missing Nobel Prizes. He combined a deep interest in historical development, intimate knowledge in his subject matters, and a natural gift of an engaging writing style. His latest, posthumous book was about the missing Nobel Prize for Dmitrii Mendeleev's Periodic Table of the Elements.
