He discovered the transuranic element plutonium in 1940, & shared the 1951 Nobel Prize for chemistry with Ed McMillan, discoverer of neptunium, for their work on transuranics. During World War II, he developed techniques for the isolation of plutonium for the Manhattan project, America's atom bomb programme. His team at the University of California at Berkeley discovered the transuranics americium & curium in 1944, berk- elium & californium in 1949.
