The Religious Affiliation of Nobel Prize-winning chemist
Derek Barton received a Nobel Prize in Chemistry. He received 1969 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his contribution to the development of the conformational analysis (the study of the three-dimensional geometric structure of complex molecules) as an essential part of organic chemistry.
For further reference, read about Derek Barton's belief in God in Chapter 24 of Tihomir Dimitrov's book 50 Nobel Laureates and Other Great Scientists Who Believe in God (2007), (http://nobelists.net/; viewed 19 April 2007). Dimitrov has said that Barton was a Christian whose denomination was probably Anglican (personal correspondence, 19 April 2007), but further research is needed on this point.
