The "Profiles, Pathways and Dreams" series is a "who's who" of organic chemistry that follows the lives of some of chemistry's most eminent and prolific scientists. Each contributor describes his research and science over the range of his career. Together, these autobiographies illustrate how various disciplines of chemistry have progressed over the past 50 years. Noted for his discoveries in the field of heterocyclic chemistry, Rolf Huisgen "invented" numerous reactions, including the 2 + 3 dipolar cycloaddition. In this book, he tells of rebuilding the famous Munich laboratory from rubble after the destruction due to the bombings of Munich in World War II. Huisgen's philosophies of life and science are discussed in detail in academia. Many photographs depict both the professional, as well as the personal side of this renowned scientist.
