Charles J. Pedersen, co-winner of the 1987 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his discovery of molecules that enable scientists to create complex organic compounds, died Thursday after a lengthy illness. He was 85. Pedersen, a widower who lived alone, died in his Salem home, said Justin Carisio, a spokesman for Pedersen's former employer, E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co. He had suffered from a form of blood cancer and Parkinson's disease, Carisio said.

Scientists at U.S. institutions swept the Nobel Prizes in chemistry and physics this year, and a California research center was a key player in pioneering research that led to the awarding of the physics prize to three experimenters. The Nobel Prize in physics was awarded Wednesday to three physicists who made major discoveries about the fundamental nature of matter while working 20 years ago at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in Menlo Park.
