Description

PAUL SABATIER (1854-1941) SIGNED NOTE, “Paul Sabatier/Dean of the Toulouse Faculty of Science”, on a card 4.25 x 3.5, July 20, 1919, by the French chemist who was awarded the 1912 Nobel Prize in Chemistry along with Victor Grignard. Sabatier was honored for his work improving the hydrogenation of organic species in the presence of metals and greatly facilitated the industrial use of hydrogenation. The Sabatier reaction or Sabatier process is used in the International Space Station to produce the necessary water without relying on the necessary stock from earth. His handwritten note in French, with translation, in full: “I have had the great pleasure of seeing a thousand students from the American Army study the curriculum of our university for four month; they left us with the most favorable impression.” The note was written the year following the end of WWI, when many military personnel would still have been in France. In fine condition, with minor age toning.
