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

By Anthony S. Travis

This concise short describes how the calls for of worldwide warfare I, also known as the Chemists’ conflict, ended in the fast emergence of a brand new key in accordance with 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 20th century, this inspired study into and alertness of novel procedures. This booklet illustrates how from past due 1914 the kinfolk and advancements within the first sleek military-industrial complicated enabled the nice capital charges and technological advances that sped up substantial enlargement, fairly of the BASF Haber-Bosch high-pressure strategy, that decided the path of the post-war chemical industry.
