Who am I?
« on: 19/05/2009 09:25:42 »
Following on from the 'Can you guess what this is' thread, I thought perhaps we could try a 'Who am I?' thread.

So here goes with the first candidate.

Who am I?

I was born in Germany in the mid 19th. century and trained as a military physician at the Kaiser Wilhelm Akademie. I invented a piece of equipment which bears my name and remains in use to this day.

Who am I?

I am an Italian who studied the chemistry of gases. Although I discovered a gas, it is not for this discovery that I am best remembered.

This gas, it wasn't an element was it?

If there were two of them you'd have an Avogadro pair...
