Yves Chauvin

Yves Chauvin (born October 10 1930) is a French chemist and Nobel Prize laureate. He is honorary research director at the "Institut français du pétrole" and a member of the French Academy of Science. Chauvin received his degree from the Lyon's School of Chemistry, Physics and Electronics in 1954.

He was awarded the 2005 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, along with Robert H. Grubbs and Richard R. Schrock, for his work from the early 1970s in the area of olefin metathesis. Chauvin was embarrassed to receive his award and initially indicated that he may not accept it. [http://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/mensch/0,1518,378142,00.html] He did however receive his award from the King of Sweden and deliver his Nobel lecture.
