“First Noble Gas Compounds” Neil Bartlett Hand Written Letter Dated 2002. This is one of the only hand written letters known to exist by this reknowned scientist. This item is authenticated by Todd Mueller Autographs and comes with their certificate of authenticity. (15 September 1932 5 August 2008) was a chemist who specialized in fluorine and compounds containing fluorine, and became famous for creating the first. He taught chemistry at the. University of British Columbia. University of California, Berkeley. Neil Bartlett was born on 15 September 1932 in. Bartlett’s interest in chemistry dated back to an experiment at. When he was only eleven years old, in which he prepared “beautiful, well-formed” crystals by reaction of. He went on to attend. King’s College, University of Durham. Which went on to become. In the United Kingdom where he obtained a Bachelor of Science (1954) and then a doctorate (1958). In 1958, Bartlett’s career began upon being appointed a lecturer in chemistry at the. In Vancouver, BC, Canada where he would ultimately reach the rank of full professor. During his time at the university he made his seminal discovery that. Were indeed reactive enough to form bonds. He remained there until 1966, when he moved to. As a professor of chemistry and a member of the research staff at. He then went on to join the chemistry department at the. In 1969 as a professor of chemistry until his retirement in 1993. He was also a staff scientist at. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. From 1969 to 1999. In 2000, he became a naturalized citizen of the United States. He died on 5 August 2008 of a ruptured. He lived with his wife Christina Bartlett until his death. They had 4 children. Bartlett’s main specialty was the chemistry of fluorine and of compounds containing fluorine. In 1962, Bartlett prepared the first. This contradicted established models of the nature of. As it was believed that all noble gases were entirely inert to chemical combination. He subsequently produced and reproduced several other fluorides of xenon: XeF. By exploiting the solvent and basic properties of. He was able to prepare the first quinquevalent gold compound, Xe. In 1968 he was awarded the. In 1973, he was made a. Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1976 he received the Welch Award in Chemistry for his synthesis of chemical compounds of noble gases and the consequent opening of broad new fields of research in the inorganic chemistry. He was elected a Fellow of the. American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 1979, he was honored as a Foreign Associate of the. National Academy of Sciences. He was awarded the prestigious. In 2002 for his discovery that the noble gases were not that noble after all. Previous recipients of the Davy Medal had included people as diverse as. The inventor of the. Who suggested the existence of the compound. In 2006, his research into the reactivity of noble gases was designated jointly by the. Canadian Society for Chemistry. International Historic Chemical Landmark. In recognition of its significance, fundamental to the scientific understanding of the chemical bond. Bartlett was nominated for a Nobel Prize in Chemistry every year between 1963 and 1966 but did not get the Prize. In January 1963, Bartlett and his graduate student, P. Rao, were hospitalized after an explosion in the laboratory. As they looked at what they thought might be the first crystals of. The compound exploded, getting shards of glass in the eyes of both men. According to Bartlett, he thought that the compound may have contained water molecules, and he and Rao took off their glasses to get a better look. They were both taken to the hospital for four weeks, and Bartlett was left with damaged vision in one eye. The last piece of glass from this accident was removed 27 years later.
