Benjamin List and David WC MacMillan have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

They were recognized for their work on “asymmetric organocatalysis,” a new method of constructing molecules.

Goran Hansson, secretary-general of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, revealed the winners on Wednesday.

According to the Nobel committee, List and MacMillan separately invented a new method of catalysis in 2000.

Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede, a member of the Nobel committee, remarked, “It’s already benefiting humankind greatly.”

It is typical for an award to be shared by multiple scientists who operate in relevant subjects. Last year, the prize was awarded to Jennifer A. Doudna of the United States and Emmanuelle Charpentier of France for discovering a gene-editing tool that has transformed research by allowing scientists to alter DNA.

The prize includes a gold medal and a cash prize of 10 million Swedish kronor (about $1.14 million). The award money originates from a legacy left by Alfred Nobel, the prize’s originator, who died in 1895.

The Nobel Committee awarded Americans David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian the prize in physiology or medicine on Monday for their research into how the human body detects temperature and touch.

The Nobel Prize in Physics was handed on Tuesday to three scientists whose work helped to explain and anticipate complex natural phenomena, including climate change, by finding order in what appeared to be chaos.

Prizes will be given out in the next days for excellent work in the disciplines of literature, peace, and economics.
