  Haber process. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-07
), commercial process for the synthesis of ammonia, NH Pure hydrogen and nitrogen gases are mixed in the appropriate proportion, heated to between 450°C and 600°C, compressed to about 1,000 atmospheres pressure, and passed over a catalyst.
The ammonia gas is liquefied by rapid cooling; unreacted nitrogen and hydrogen are returned to the reaction chamber.
This process, developed by Fritz Haber in 1909, was the first commercially important high-pressure chemical process.

 Leading Clinic in Ohio - Dr. Bob Haber - Photo Album By and for Hair Loss Patients
Haber is very much at the cutting edge of addressing these issues so that patient’s get the optimal amount grafts from a given amount of limited donor tissue, while minimizing the visibility of any donor scar.
In my opinion, Dr. Haber’s new donor spreader is an outstanding and innovative tool that will save hundreds of thousands of precious follicles in thousands of patients as leading physicians incorporate it into their practices.
Haber also uses a relatively new technique for closing the donor area called “Trichophytic” closure, which can often make the donor scar virtually undetectable to the naked eye.

The Haber Process (aka Haber-Bosch process) is the reaction of nitrogen and hydrogen to produce ammonia.
The process was developed by Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch in 1909 and patented in 1910.

 Fritz Haber
The Haber-Bosch process was a milestone in industrial chemistry, because it divorced the production of nitrogen products, such as fertilizer, explosives and chemical feedstocks, from natural deposits, especially sodium nitrate ('Caliche'), of which Chile was a major producer.
In his studies of the effects of poison gas, Haber found a simple mathematical relationship between the concentration (C) of the gas and the amount of time (t) it was breathed in, expresed as C x t = k, where k is a constant.
Haber defended gas warfare against accusations that it was inhumane, saying that death was death, by whatever means it was inflicted.

 Zmaczynski - Haber Process
However, the effects of the Haber Process are important to the history of fertilizers and, to a lesser extent, the history of explosives.
Fritz Haber and Karl Bosch of Germany developed the process in the early years of this century, before World War I. The effort was a joint one between German industry and the German University.
Haber and Bosch and their coworkers determined the conditions necessary (high temperatures and very high pressures) and the catalysts necessary (a variety were found, the cheapest and most effective being oxides of iron with traces of oxides of other common elements).
