Physical chemist. Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his discovery of new radioactive elements prepared artificially. Frederic Joliot graduated in physical engineering at the École de Physique et de Chimie Industrielle de la Ville de Paris in 1920, which was then directed by Paul Langevin. Some time later he was appointed as Marie Curie's assistant. There he met Irène Curie and married her in 1926.

The inner wall made of soft steel was resistant to hydrogen at high temperature whereas the outer wall, made of carbon-rich steel, could withstand high pressures. In 1911, industrial production of ammonia began at BASF. Again under Bosch's responsibility, the company undertook in 1925 to study the so-called Bergius process for producing liquid hydrocarbons by the reaction of hydrogen with coal dust. Although this method could not compete with petroleum derivatives, it did sustain Germany's war effort between 1940 and 1945.
