MYSTERY BANKNOTE CHEMIST SOUGHT

According to an article published in The Scotsman October 8,
"A hunt was launched yesterday for a mystery scientist featured
on a Scottish banknote.

The woman, believed to be a chemical scientist, posed for the
picture more than ten years ago. She features on the back of
Bank of Scotland 20 notes with the caption "education and
research".

But she has always remained anonymous and now the Royal
Society of Chemistry hopes to find her in time for the annual
Science and the Parliament event in Edinburgh next month."

"The Bank of Scotland said it was unable to reveal the
woman's identity."

"A bank spokeswoman said: "The image on the reverse of the
20 note, illustrating education and research, shows an individual
using a high pressure liquid chronometer. The engraving by
(banknote producer) De La Rue, as far as we are aware, is
based on a photograph of a real person."
