Caption: Kenichi Fukui (1918-1998), Japanese chemist. Fukui was professor of physical chemistry at Kyoto University from 1951 to 1982. He carried out pioneering work on molecular orbital theory and its use to predict chemical reactions and reactivity. His work focused on frontier orbitals (HOMO and LOMO). This work, carried out independently of similar work by Woodward and Hoffman, gained Fukui a share of the 1981 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Fukui was a member of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science. His honours include the Japan Academy Medal (1962), the Order of Culture (1981) and the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun (1988).
