Welcome

Welcome to the George C. Pimentel website.  After a slow start two years ago, we are now working on additions to the site, and your suggestions are welcome.

Sixteen years after his death, George's spirit and influence are still with us, in chemistry and in the world at large, and we still receive queries about his work and his life.  To learn more about him, or to remember him as an old friend, please browse these pages.  We particularly welcome his students and research collaborators, and urge you to keep in touch with us and with each other.

George's research still affects today's discoveries in chemistry, and his students still remember him with affection and gratitude.  There's a building named for him on the Berkeley campus, and several awards and events in his honor: the American Chemical Society's Award in Chemical Education; the IBM-sponsored annual lecture, and the George C. Pimentel Award for a graduating senior at UC Berkeley.  This award is given annually at the College of Chemistry commencement ceremony.  George gave the commencement address there in 1988.

Also on this site are a brief summary of his life, one account of his continuing influence (even in space), and a list of his graduate students and other research collaborators at Berkeley (currently being revised).  Many more items are planned - from his scientific bibliography to his (unpublished) short stories; from the CHEM Study story to his advice to Congress.  And lots more photos.  We welcome comments and contributions.  Thanks for visiting.
