|Title:||Raoul-Pierre Pictet—The liquefaction of oxygen and achievement of low temperatures|
|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.|
