However, when Van Niel arrived in Carmel, California, he was immediately impressed by the charm of the town, and the beautiful site the Jacques Loeb Laboratory. The organisms in the morphological corhelius were further assigned to sixty-three genera on the basis of types of energy metab- olism, substrate utilization and among chemo-hetero- trophic anaerobes- products of metabolism.
But there remained to work out just how the hydrogen atoms were made available to the dark reactions. But, discussing the alternatives with an aunt whose judgment he trusted "at least in part because of her unconventional attitudes and be- havior," he was finally persuaded to continue on in chemistry.

CORNELIS BERNARDUS VAN NIEL —Kees to his friends and students—is best known for his discovery of mul- tiple types of bacterial photosynthesis, his. Many of us remembered Dr. Van Niel for his work on photosynthesis. He developed a revolutionary concept of the chemistry of photosynthesis that was to.
