At this summer’s Lindau Nobel Laureates meeting in Germany, the participating laureates and young researchers came from all over the world, but they had one thing in common: chemistry.

The Nature Video team filmed three discussions on issues that matter to the current generation of chemists, including the world's pressing problems and how chemistry can help us to solve them. Laureates and students clashed over the future of energy production, grappled with drug development, discussed dwindling supplies of metal catalysts and debated science’s role in the developing world.
