In existographies, Fritz Haber (87-21 BE) (1868-1934 ACM) (IQ:180|#130) (Becker 160:92) (GCE:30) (EPD:M3W) (FTS:7) (CR:62) (LH:6) (TL:68) was a German physical chemist, noted for refers to []


In 1905, Haber, in his Thermodynamics of Technical Gas Phase Reactions, did some of the first preliminary on calculating the free energies of formations of chemical substances.[1] This was a big stepping stone to Gilbert Lewis' 1923 Thermodynamics and the Free Energy of Chemical Substances.

Haber process

In 1907, Haber developed a method to successfully synthesize ammonia , from nitrogen and and hydrogen gas reactants, a difficult reaction in that it required the breaking of the strong nitrogen triple bond N≡N:

Thereafter, fertilizer became readily available for the world, and a global population explosion resulted.


Quotes | On

The following are quotes:

"Haber’s Thermodynamics of Technical Gas Phase Reactions [1905] is the most important contribution to the subject of predicting the course of a chemical reaction from a few characteristic constants of the reacting substances, after the ill-starred attempt of Berthelot.”
— Arthur Lamb (1907), “Translators Preface” [1]
