German physicist. He received his PhD from the Univ. of Gö ttingen in 1951. He shared a 1967 Nobel Prize with Ronald Norrish (1897-1978) and George Porter (b.1920) for work on extremely rapid chemical reactions. His methods, called relaxation techniques, involve applying bursts of energy to a solution and following the rates of subsequent changes (flash photolysis); reactions thus studied include hydrogen ion formation during water dissociation and keto-enol tautomerism.
