At Northwestern, he mentored a large number of students and post-doctoral fellows, many of them have taken leadership positions in companies and who would pay him frequent visits, some as recent as late last year.
Afterwards, he did a Postoctoral stay, between and , at the University of Edinburgh Scotland, UK working on the study of the H-D isotope exchange in hydrocarbons, under the supervision of Prof.
Kellogg Co. In he was appointed to Scientist Researcher and, finally, in he got the Full Research Professor status. He was author of numerous publications and patents and supervisor of a large number of Projects, PhD students, etc. Under the leadership of Professor J. Garner and collaborate with Dr. Dennis A. He was the first Director of the ICP enhancing strongly the research in Applied Catalysis and Biocatalysis, a completely innovative research line in Spain. He was the impeller and organizer of the 1st Iberoamerican Symposium on Catalysis, held in Madrid in , first of a successful series of Conferences, which will celebrate its 25th edition next year at Montevideo Uruguay.
He grew up in Copenhagen during a time of social unrest, and his father's involvement in voluntary social work, covering vital services during general strikes, made a lifelong impression on him. Throughout his life he recognized the importance of overcoming the boundaries between social classes to enable people to work together.
After only three years, however, he left and started his own business. From academia to industry At first, the situation looked far from promising. Suddenly, he had to reconsider his future. Realizing he could no longer expect to get a good position at a Danish university, he decided to take his wife's advice and use his knowledge of chemical engineering to start up his own private company.
Head of researchgroup:
His intention was to earn enough money to enable him and his colleagues to pursue their passion for establishing a theoretical, scientific basis for making advances in industrial processes. Inger approved of his plan and said that it should be a good place to work, to which he added, "and to have worked. Having managed to create "a good place to work," he was able to attract talented, dedicated scientists and engineers, and the company's first products, using catalysis to speed up the production of sulfuric acid, came to market in His passion for Brazil was quite intense.
He was also able to speak portuguese. Everyone will remember him as an enthusiastic and brilliant scientist who contributed enormously to the scientific and social life of the Institute over 30 years. He was a lively figure at international conferences, often addressing searching question in his charmingly accented English. He was awarded the annual award by the Catalysis division of the French Chemical Society in for his major contribution in ''structure sensitivity'' of metallic oxides for catalytic selective oxidation of hydrocarbons.
His case study was MoO 3 single crystals.
He has more than publications and patents in the field of oxidation catalysis in which he is world famous. His contribution to VPO catalysts for butane oxidation to maleic anhydride was important and outstanding.

A special issue of the Journal Applied Catalysis A was organized by his friends and colleagues who wanted to express their recognition to Jean-Claude Volta on the occasion of his retirement and to celebrate his contribution to the field of structure sensitivity and selective oxidation in heterogeneous catalysis. This note is essentially based on the preface of this special issue. Professor Jerzy Haber, an outstanding scientist, Leader and Tutor of many generations of Polish chemists, a remarkable organiser of research, died on January 1, He was an internationally acclaimed specialist in solid state chemistry, catalysis and surface phenomena who created and directed for many years the Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry of Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow.
Jerzy Haber was born on May 7, in Krakow and linked with this city his entire professional and private life. Here, in , he graduated in chemistry from the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry of the Jagiellonian University. In his research, he demonstrated a correlation between changes in their electron properties and catalytic activity A. Haber, Nature This was one of the first experimental confirmations of the electron theory of catalysis in the world. His doctoral thesis 'A relationship between the electric conductivity of a working catalyst and its catalytic activity', accomplished at the age of 26, concerned the same subject.
In , he stayed as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Bristol, where he undertook with Professor F. Stone a pioneering at that time research on the interpretation of photoadsorption and photocatalysis on the basis of the crystal field theory, the results of which have been quoted until today in the textbooks and monographs J.

Haber, F. Stone, Trans. Faraday Soc. On his return to Poland, he continued his work at the AGH University of Technology until first as a research fellow and then as an associate professor. He was an excellent lecturer. His lectures on physical chemistry attracted crowds of students of various departments of the university.
In , he was appointed director of an independent Laboratory of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry of Polish Academy of Sciences since , the Institute. The Institute was Jerzy Haber's life accomplishment. He masterminded the concept of creating a platform for a mutual exchange of ideas and research in the entire area of the physical chemistry of gas-solid, gas-liquid and solid-solid interfaces.
He stood behind the spectacular development of the Institute which started in a few rented premises with 28 members of staff, including just 5 in catalysis sensu stricte , and attained during 30 years its own impressive building, unique research equipment and almost members of staff, including 15 professors and associated professors, specialising in diverse aspects of catalysis, surface chemistry and colloids.
In spite of difficult times of politically divided Europe, the Institute has become an element in the international research network, a place of free flow of ideas, open to contacts with the entire world, a true centre of excellence in its area. At the Institute, Jerzy Haber initiated and developed broad research, both fundamental and applied, in diverse areas of heterogeneous and homogenous catalysis, as well as solid state chemistry applied to catalysis.
In particular, his research concerned oxide systems - catalysts of the selective oxidation processes, as well as zeolites, catalysts based on metallo-organic complexes, and catalysts used in the environmental protection, to mention just the most important research directions. The investigations have led to the formulation of a theory of catalytic oxidation of hydrocarbons and have introduced into the world literature the concept of electrophilic and nucleophilic oxidation.
