As chemist, it can be insulting to be referred to as a "set of hands" especially after spending months on a project and contributing valuable compounds.  Maybe the chemist didn't develop the compound list/ideas, but he/she executed it (which may have involved troubleshooting) and therefore should still gain recognition on the patent.  In addition, having that patent to add to one's resume would be nice at any level.
