Part of the Chemists and Chemistry book series (CACH, volume 15)

Abstract

In this paper the contributions of Dr. Carl Auer von Welsbach to science and technology will be divided into four sections. The order is not exactly determined by the chronology of his life, since it makes more sense to deal with the different areas that he studied in his scientific and industrial career. The sections are:
  • Auer — discoverer of chemical elements

  • Auer — inventor of the incandescent gas mantle

  • Auer — inventor of the osmium filament electric light bulb

  • Auer — discoverer of pyrophoric mischmetal alloys

Keywords

Rare Earth Fractional Crystallisation Atomic Weight Austrian Emperor Incandescent Light 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
