When i took chemistry in high school, i remember one time the teacher mentioned a great scientist who made the discoveries for the aspects of chemistry that we were studying. This chemist made some sort of huge breakthroughs in chemistry sometime before November 1918. He might have won a Nobel Prize. My teacher then mentioned that he was killed in World War 1. My teacher said that it was real wasteful that this great chemist was killed. My impression is that this great chemist was killed in action in world war 1 as opposed to being a soldier who died of disease. Who is the great scientist killed in world war 1 who my teacher was probably talking about?
