Experimentalists & Theoreticians

Nano & Fusion

Nano & Fusion (1)Wikipedia

Sir Humphry Davy(Chemistry 1778-1829)

● 1807— Discover several alkali and alkaline earth metals (Na, K, Ca, Mg, Ba, B) by electrolysis using voltaic pile

●laughing gas(nitrous gas N2O)

●First arc lamp, ●Davy lamp

Michael Faraday(Scientist, Chemist 1791-1867)

●electrochemistry, electromagnetism

●benzene, ● Bunsen burner with Davy

● metallic Au nanoparticle•••nanoscience

●environmental science

Nano & Fusion (2)

Robert Bunsen(Chemistry 1811-1899)

● Organometallic compd. almost died & lost sight in his right eye •••cacodyl (organo arsenic molecule) •••Me radical

● Bunsen cell battery(1841 Pt→ C)

●Photochemistry● Bunsen burner

Gustav Kirchhoff(Physics, Chemistry 1824-1887) ● Kirchhoff’ laws (circuit theory, thermodynamics) ● Spectroscopy•••black body radiation

● Bunsen-Kirchhoff Award for spectroscopy

1860-61 Bunsen & Kirchhoff discovered Cs & Rb by spectrum analysis

Cs Forty tons of mineral water from Dürkheim was concentrated to isolate 17 g of deep blue element

They were the first recipients of the prestigious Davy Medal for their researches & discoveries in spectrum analysis

Gustav Robert Kirchhoff (12 March 1824 – 17 October 1887) German physicist. He coined the term “black body 黒体輻射" radiation in 1862, and two different sets of concepts (one in circuit theory, and one in thermodynamics) are named "Kirchhoff's laws" after him; there is also a Kirchhoff's Law in thermochemistry.


The current entering any junction is equal to the current leaving that junction. i2 + i3 = i1 + i4

Charles(良男) J. Pedersen(Chemistry, 1904-1989)

● Synthesis of Crown ethers, ● Naked anion

Born in Pusan(釜山), Korea, Norwegian father

and Japanese mother •• International school in

Yokohama •• Univ. Dayton in Ohio (at 18) ••MIT ••DuPont(at 23). At 63(1967), he published two papers about crown ethers →At 83(1987) received Nobel Prize with Donald Cram and Jean-Marie Lehn. Supramolecule

Linus C. Pauling (1901–1994) (Chemist, Biochemist, Peace activist, Author, Educator)

Oregon Agricultural College (16).

●In his last two years at school, Pauling became aware of the work of Gilbert N. Lewis and Irving Langmuir on the electronic structure of atoms and their bonding to form molecules.→ ● Caltech (Crystallography) → ●Guggenheim Fellowship to study under A. Sommerfeld, N. Bohr, E. Schrödinger → ● Quantum chemistry

New concept: hybridization

The Nature of the Chemical Bond(1939)

1954 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

● Valence Bond Theory(Quantum chemistry)

● Biological Molecule

● Molecular Genetics

● Molecular Medicine ??

•Pauling is notable for the diversity of his interests: quantum mechanics, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, protein structure, molecular biology, and medicine. In all these fields, and especially on the boundaries between them, he made decisive contributions.

• Pauling's work on crystal structure contributed significantly to the prediction and elucidation of the structures of complex minerals and compounds.

• His discovery of the alpha helix and beta sheet is a fundamental foundation for the study of protein structure

L. Pauling as an educator
