Gerhard Ertl of Germany has won this year’s 1.5 million US dollar Nobel Prize in Chemistry, for his work on chemical processes on solid surfaces.

The Nobel Committee said Ertl’s work has helped the chemical industry understand such varied processes as why iron rusts, how fuel cells function and how the catalysts in our cars work.

George Wood talked to Professor Sven Lidin of the Nobel Chemistry Committee at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences just after the prize was announced:
