compound that could be made could be made commercially; Woodward, that any
molecule found in nature, no matter how complex, could be synthesized in the
lab. They were kindred spirits whose informal synergy came to dominate
synthetic organic chemistry for the next forty years. “Max,” observes Peter Jacobi,
chairman of the ...
