Dorothy Hodgkin 1910-1994 She establish that penicillin consisted of a ring of three carbons and a nitrogen. Determine the structure of the antibiotic cephalosporin C. Became the first scientist in Britain to use a computer to analyze the molecular structure of complex chemicals and this enabled her to produce 3D models.  Vitamin B12, more complex than penicillin, took eight years to determine its structure also researched the structure of insulin. Won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1964.
