  Donald J. Cram - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Donald James Cram (April 22, 1919 – June 17, 2001) was an American chemist who shared the 1987 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for “synthesizing three-dimensional molecules that could mimic the functioning of natural molecules.” He also won the National Academy of Science Award in the Chemical Sciences.
Cram was educated at Rollins College, Florida, and at the University of Nebraska, and he received his doctorate in organic chemistry from Harvard University in 1947.
Cram expanded upon Charles Pedersen's ground-breaking synthesis of crown ethers, basically two-dimensional organic compounds that are able to recognize and selectively combine with the ions of certain metal elements.
