Mislow was born in Berlin, Germany, on June 5, With the rapid rise of National Socialism in Germany, his family moved first to Milan inthen to London in In Septemberas the Luftwaffe began its bombing raids on London and just as Mislow was about to enter Cambridge University, the crucial affidavit arrived that allowed his family to immigrate to America, where they settled in Manhattan.
Mislow graduated from Tulane University B.
He joined the faculty of New York University, where he rose through the ranks to Professor. Stereochemistry is a subject that analyzes the three-dimensional arrangement of atoms and molecules in space. It is a field fundamental to many scientific disciplines, such as physics, biochemistry, genetics, pharmaceuticals, and nanotechnology.
Introduction to stereochemistry / Kurt Mislow. – Version details – Trove
Chirality, is a term derived from the Greek introdyction for handedness. An object is chiral if and only if it is not superimposable on its mirror image. Chirality is strikingly obvious in our daily lives. Thus, while our right and left hands are symmetrical, they are not superimposable; your right hand cannot be fitted into your left glove. In order to to describe the complexity of molecular structures, he created a new, precise, insightful lexicon based on topicity that is now standard in the field.
He and his students also designed and synthesized the complex organic molecules that validated his symmetry-based predictions. Mislow introduced group theory to clarify the stereochemical relationships misliw between molecules as well as within molecules.
He recognized the power of graph theory to examine the kinetic activity of fascinating mobile machines of nanotechnology such as molecular gears and propellers. He proposed a unique relationship between the form and function of these entwined molecular superstructures and the origins of chirality. Mislow maintained a cautious concern regarding the interaction of social and public policies and the scientific enterprise.
Mislow was a committed, passionate, much loved and respected teacher of both undergraduates and graduate students.
In addition to being a premier scientist, he was a humanist, with broad and probing interests in philosophy, history, neuroscience, literature, and music. Cope Scholar Award He was the first recipient of the Prelog Medaland was awarded the Chirality Gold Medal in He was Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Scholar at the California Institute of Technology in, andand received the Distinguished Alumni Award from that institution in Mislow has held numerous Visiting professorships and honorary lectureships here and abroad, and has served on the editorial advisory boards of many noted scientific journals.
He authored or coauthored over articles in professional journals and wrote the classic book, Introduction to Stereochemistry  that was so lucid and advanced in the explanation of the subject that, 50 years later, it is still used in teaching and referenced in major research publications.
Professor Mislow is survived by his beloved wife of 50 years, Dr. He was predeceased by their son, John Mislow, M.
