Ponomarev, Dmitry A.; Shevchenko, Sergey M.
Journal of Chemical Education, v84 n10 p1725-1726 Oct 2007
The year 2006 is the 125th anniversary of a chemical reaction, the discovery of which by Mikhail Kucherov had a profound effect on the development of industrial chemistry in the 19-20th centuries. This was the hydration of alkynes catalyzed by mercury ions that made possible industrial production of acetaldehyde from acetylene. Historical circumstances of this discovery and subsequent events are discussed. (Contains 1 figure.)
