The Synthetic Nitrogen Industry in World War I: Its by Anthony S. Travis

By Anthony S. Travis

This concise short describes how the calls for of worldwide conflict I, sometimes called the Chemists’ warfare, ended in the quick emergence of a brand new key according to fixation of atmospheric nitrogen. Then, as now, nitrogen items, together with nitric acid, and nitrates, have been crucial for either fertilizers and within the manufacture of contemporary explosives. in the course of the first decade of the 20 th century, this inspired study into and alertness of novel strategies. This e-book illustrates how from overdue 1914 the family members and advancements within the first glossy military-industrial advanced enabled the nice capital charges and technological advances that sped up colossal growth, rather of the BASF Haber-Bosch high-pressure method, that made up our minds the course of the post-war chemical industry.
