G. Farbenindustrie, re-sulting from the merger of BASF with six German companies that specialised in dye production. Close collaboration with Fritz Haber was to lead to the development of a process for synthesising ammonia directly from nitrogen and hydrogen. Haber had sold his patent to BASF in 1909 and Bosch made it his task to scale up the process for industrial use. He had to solve several problems to achieve this: separating the hydrogen from the carbon monoxide present in the "water gas" resulting from the action of water on coal at high temperature, isolating nitrogen from air by distillation, develoKarl Bosch ping a cheaper catalyser than the osmium used by Haber, and finally building a reactor capable of withstanding the particularly harsh process conditions of high temperature:500°C; high pressure:200 atmospheres.
