 Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University
Linus Pauling was never reluctant to inspire or enter into controversy by expressing unorthodox scientific ideas, taking a strong moral position, or rousing the public to some worthy cause.
Pauling discovered that in many cases the type of bonding —; whether ionic or covalent (formed by a sharing of electrons between bonded atoms) —; could be determined from a substance's magnetic properties.
Pauling's innovative concepts, published beginning in the late 1920s, together with numerous examples of their application to particular chemical compounds or compound groups gave chemists fundamental principles to apply to the growing body of chemical knowledge.

Linus Carl Pauling (February 28, 1901—August 19, 1994) was an American physical chemist.
It was here especially that Pauling's electronegativity concept was particularly useful; the electronegativity difference between a pair of atoms will be the surest predictor of the degree of ionicity of the bond.
On Pauling's retirement in 1974, he and some of these scientists founded the Institute of Orthomolecular Medicine, now the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine, in Palo Alto, California.

In 1931 Pauling was awarded the Langmuir Prize of the American Chemical Society for "the most noteworthy work in pure science done by a man under 30 years of age." In the same year he was offered a joint full professorship in both chemistry and physics at the Massachusetts Institute Of Technology.
Pauling was later to write, "By 1935, I had worked out most of the fundamental problems connected with the chemical bond." and "My serious interest in what is now called molecular biology began about 1935." He began with a look at hemoglobin.
On October 10, 1962, it was announced that Linus Pauling had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts on behalf of a nuclear test ban treaty.

Linus Pauling's popular and influential book How to Live Longer and Feel Better, first published in 1986, advocated very high doses of Vitamin C. Pauling's work on vitamin C in his later years generated controversy and was regarded by some adversaries in the field of medicine as outright quackery.
Pauling's stand also led these subjects to be much more actively investigated by other researchers, including those at the Linus Pauling Institute which lists a dozen principal investigators and faculty who explore the role of micronutrients, plus phytochemicals, in health and disease.
