ウィリアム・ラムゼイ卿 Google Doodle
Today’s today search Engine Google is celebrating Sir William Ramsay’s 167th birthday. With attractive Doodle in the Japan, Canada, UK, Mexico and few other countries. Google Doodle celebrates the life and work of Scottish chemist Sir William Ramsey. First of All, whose research led to the discovery of an unknown group of elements knowing as the noble gases.
William Ramsey is, KCB, FRS and FRSE were Scottish chemists who discovers noble gases in 1904. And were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for “recognition of discovering inert gas elements in the air”. After the two men identified argon, Ramsey investigated other atmospheric gases.
As a result, British physical chemist who discovered four gases (neon, argon, krypton, xenon). And showed they (with helium and radon) form a whole family of new elements, noble gases.
Described by many as the “greatest chemical discoverer of his time,”. Ramsay became a fellow of the Royal Society in 1888, knighted in 1902, and awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1904.
Finally, Ramsey discovered helium while looking for argon, Helium previously thought to exist only in the sun. Ramsey’s 1896 book, The Gases of the Atmosphere, predicted the existence of at least three rare gases. When the air lowered to high pressure and cold. While, his team permanently rebuilt the periodic table of elements. And began to identify neon, krypton and xenon.
Furthermore, It was here UCL that his most famous discovery took place. From 1885 to 1890, he published several notable papers on nitrogen oxides and developed the skills necessary for further research.
Happy Birthday,Sir William Ramsay! Source
