A triumph over trial and error: The Haber–Bosch industrial synthesis of ammonia (the picture shows an industrial installation for this process) has reached such a level of refinement that, in the energy balance the only significant loss is the preparation of the highly pure starting materials. Iron, ruthenium, or molybdenum compounds serve as the catalyst. The development of new catalysts is becoming increasingly effective through a deeper understanding of the basic princi ples involved and less dependent on trial and error.
