Manfred Eigen (9 May 1927[1][2] – 6 February 2019) was a German biophysical chemist who won the 1967 Nobel Prize in Chemistry alongside Ronald George Wreyford Norrish[3] and George Porter.[4] He was known for his studies of extremely fast chemical reactions induced in response to very short pulses of energy.

He was born in Bochum, Germany. Eigen died on 6 February 2019 in Berlin at the age of 91.[5][6][7]
