Otto Wallach (1847-1931) "in recognition of his services to organic chemistry and the chemical industry by his pioneer work in the field of alicyclic compounds"
Marie Curie (1867-1934) "in recognition of her services to the advancement of chemistry by the discovery of the elements radium and polonium, by the isolation of radium and the study of the nature and compounds of this remarkable element"
Victor Grignard (1871-1935) "for the discovery of the so-called Grignard reagent, which in recent years has greatly advanced the progress of organic chemistry" and Paul Sabatier (1854-1941) "for his method of hydrogenating organic compounds in the presence of finely disintegrated metals whereby the progress of organic chemistry has been greatly advanced in recent years"
Alfred Werner (1860-1919) "in recognition of his work on the linkage of atoms in molecules by which he has thrown new light on earlier investigations and opened up new fields of research especially in inorganic chemistry"
Theodore W Richards (1868-1928) "in recognition of his accurate determinations of the atomic weight of a large number of chemical elements"
Francis W Aston (1877-1945) "for his discovery, by means of his mass spectrograph, of isotopes, in a large number of non-radioactive elements, and for his enunciation of the whole-number rule"
