ABSTRACT
Robert Sanderson Mulliken (1896-1986), an American chemist, was awarded the 1966 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his molecular-orbital theory, which explains how atoms combine to form a molecule. Most scientists now accept Mulliken's theory that the electrons in the outermost shell of a molecule orbit the entire molecule rather than the individual atoms in the molecule. Scientists engaged in biological and industrial research have used Mulliken's theory to study the structure of proteins, plastics, and other complex compounds.
