"One evening in December of 1930, [Pauling] perceived how to calculate the hybrid orbitals that had eluded him two years before. 'This idea gives an almost complete theory of the nature of the chemical bond. I worked at my desk nearly all that night, so full of excitement I could hardly write.' His great essay 'The Nature of the Chemical Bond' was published in April 1931, thirty-four pages in The Journal of the American Chemical Society, followed by six more installments in the next two years, and then by the first edition of his great monograph [The Nature of the Chemical Bond]" (Judson, Eighth Day of Creation, p. 77). Linus Pauling was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1954 "for his research into the nature of the chemical bond and its application to the elucidation of the structure of complex substances.".
