Very occasional faint pencil underlining. Else Very Good+. Silliman Lectures. Walther Hermann NernstL Nobel Prize, Chemistry, 1920, "in recognition of his work in thermochemistry." ". Nernst was a chemist who was so interested in physics that he preferred to be recognized as a physicist doing chemistry rather than as a physical chemist. For example, in his introductory Silliman Lecture at Yale in 1906 he remarked that the customary separation of physics and chemistry was not altogether advantageous and was 'especially embarrassing in exploring the boundary region where physicists and chemists need to work in concert.' . By 1907 his position toward the [heat] theorem [named for him] was essentially fixed -- as can be seen from his Silliman lectures. His thesis was that the heat theorem revealed new truths about the relation between 'chemical energy and heat,' but he suggested that it also would prove useful beyond the solution of problems of chemical equilibrium and spontaneity. He emphasized that a great deal of experimentation would be necessary in order to decide whether the theorem represents only an approximate principle or an exact law of nature similar to the first and second laws. Irrespective of the theoretical status of the theorem, Nernst maintained that approximations based upon the theorem would provide answers to the all-important question about the driving force for chemical reactivity. In this he was right. Still, he suggested that chemists work over the whole field of thermochemistry from the new point of view and, namely, that they undertake an exhaustive experimental analysis of heats of reaction, specific heats, and temperature coefficients over the entire experimentally feasible temperature range" (Erwin N. Hiebert in D. S. B. XV: 435, 441). N° de ref. de la librería 14752
