IVO ANDRIĆ (1902 - 1975) was given the Nobel prize for literature in 1961, with the citation that it was awarded for "the epic force he had used to form motives and destinies from the history of his country".
Having spread the area of his research, adding to it the chemistry of higher terpenes and steroids, and particularly after the successful carrying out of the synthesis of sex hormones (androsterone, testosterone), his laboratory became the world centre of organic chemistry. In 1938 he won the Nobel prize for chemistry.
Through the merit of both our Nobel prize winners, Ružička and Prelog, Zurich has become one of the most significant centres of modern organic chemistry. Prelog received the 1975 Nobel prize for chemistry for his merits on the field of natural compounds and stereochemistry, sharing the prize with the British research chemist J.W.Cornforth.
