The 2021 Wolf Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Profs Leslie Leiserowitz and Meir Lahav for demonstrating the interaction between three-dimensional molecular structure and the structure of organic crystals. Their findings greatly complement the scientific understanding of the mechanisms and mechanisms of self-assembly of organic macromolecules. It has made outstanding contributions to the development of organic crystal chemistry. This article took this opportunity to briefly introduce the two winners of the Wolf Prize in Chemistry in 2021 and the history and status of the Wolf Prize.

Key words: Wolf Award, Crystal morphology engineering, Stereochemistry of organic crystals
