1.Bienvenido Juliano-In the span of 32 years as a Chemist in charge of grain quality research at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) from 1961-1993, Dr. Juliano contributed significantly to basic knowledge in varietal differences in grain quality of table rice and rice food products and rice nutritional quality, from his researches done at IRRI and in collaborative studies with scientists in related disciplines. Furthermore, new and improved methods for quality evaluation were developed and tested. 2.Jose Juliano-Dr.Juliano is known for his researches in nuclear chemistry and physics. Noteworthy of his published research works which total 50 are (1) Rapid and Non-destructive Analysis of Sulfur and Calcium by Radioactivation and Photoneutron Counting, (2) Disintegration of Iron-52 and Iron-53. His contributions have helped attain increased understanding of nuclear science. 3.Clara Y Lim-Sylianco-Dr. Lim-Sylianco focused on mutagens, antimutagens, and bio-organic mechanisms on her research. Her numerous discoveries of environmental mutagens earned her laboratory at the University of the Philippines the designation of being an international training center for the detection of chemical mutagens by the Research Planning in Biological Sciences, Washington D.C., USA in 1986, as well as her appointment as a member of the International Advisory Committee on Antimutagens in 1989. She is also the author of five books in organic chemistry, biochemistry, genetic toxicology, and molecular nutrition, which are used as references by college chemistry students all over the Philippines. 4.Luz Oliveros-Belardo-Filipino chemist, Luz Oliveros Belardo researched the phytochemical properties of plants in the Philippines for natural products, essential oils, and the medicinal qualities. She produced thirty-three extractions of essential oils used for flavoring, scents, and herbal medicines. 5.William Padolina-He is known for his works in...
