Authors: Wisniak, Jaime

Abstract: To Raoul Pictet (1846-1929) we owe the realization of the liquefaction of oxygen and the study of the effect of low temperatures on physical, chemical, and physiological phenomena. He developed Trouton's law in a theoretical manner, years before Trouton did it by sample tabular means. The priority of oxygen liquefaction was and continues to be a matter of discussion.
