Fritz Haber (1868-1934) was a German chemist whose conversion of atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia opened the way for the synthetic fertilizer industry.
His study of the combustion of hydrocarbons led to the commercial "cracking" or fractionating of natural oil into its components, for example diesel, petrol, and paraffin.
In electrochemistry he was the first to demonstrate that oxidation and reduction take place at the electrodes; from this he developed a general electrochemical theory.
In World War I he worked on poison gas and devised gas masks, hence there were protests against his Nobel prize in 1918.
