The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1903
Physicist, Physical Chemist. Electrolytic theory of dissociation
“Humanity stands ... before a great problem of finding new raw materials, new sources of energy that shall never become exhausted. In the meantime, we must not waste what we have, but must leave as much as possible for coming generations.” - Arrhenius.
