I guess that I could do a web search. But, does anyone know offhand what the
chemical contributions of A. Boridin were?
He is supposed to have done his musical composing when he was too ill to
show up in the lab.

Most organic chemistry books still refer to the Borodin reaction.

My supervisor wrote recemtly an article on history of chem
examining Borodin's career... unfortunately it's in Portuguese, but the
abstract
I embedded below.

FILGUEIRAS, Carlos A. L. Entre a batuta e o tubo de ensaio: a carreira
admirável de Alexandre Borodin. Quím. Nova, nov./ dez. 2002, vol.25, no.6a,
p.1040-1049. ISSN 0100-4042.

Alexander Borodin (1833-1887) is a singularity in the history of science.
Whereas other scientists may have kept lifelong interests in some artistic
field, he was unique in pursuing with great success two parallel careers in
both chemistry and music, managing to excell in both to the end of his life.
Although he considered himself primarily a chemist, present-day appreciation
of his powerful music has greatly surpassed interest for his chemistry. This
article treats the life and the unusual double career of the Russian
chemist-musician.

Palavras-chave: Borodin; chemistry and music; science and art.

Except for a few scientists who remain greater than life, Newton, Einstein,
Davy, Faraday, and Einstein for example, the quality of their work is not
something so amazing as to be still praised. A nujmber of such scientists
are remembered by units named after them. As important as Dalton's work was,
how many people would know his name? Even someone as important a Pasteur is
remembered more for his biological work rather than for his outstanding
chemistry that first made him scientifically famous.

Science is somthing people don't care to understand.

Why?

Because thinking hurts when your brain is not in shape.

Who cares about training his brain when there's Madonna kissing
Britney Spears on TV?

I don't think a scientist shold let himself be guided by public opinion,
there's no democracy in science, no one votes for theories.
