This is a list of Nobel Prizes that in my opinion were either in Inorganic Chemistry or in an area that has impacted Inorganic Chemistry. I pass this out to students on the first day of class when we are talking very generally about what inorganic chemistry is all about. This could be extended into a longer discussion at this point or at a later point on one or more of the prizes. For example, later in the semester I have them read the Nobel Prize address of Alfred Werner. This helps to inform their lab work and introduces coordination chemistry, which we have not yet discussed in lecture.
I usually do not assess this in any formal way.
When I ask my 2nd year students to name any Nobel Prizes they know of that deal with inorganic chemistry, typically nobody can think of any Nobel Prizes, except maybe Marie Curie.
