A reasonable case could be made that the scientific interest in catalytic oxidation was the basis for the recognition of the phenomenon of catalysis. Davy, in his attempt in 1817 to understand the science associated with the safety lamp he had invented a few years earlier, undertook a series of studies that led him to make the observation that a jet of gas, primarily methane, would cause a platinum wire to continue to glow even though the flame was extinguished and there was no visible flame. Dobereiner reported in 1823 the results of a similar investigation and observed that spongy platina would cause the ignition of a stream of hydrogen in air. Based on this observation Dobereiner invented the first lighter. His lighter employed hydrogen (generated from zinc and sulfuric acid) which passed over finely divided platinum and which ignited the gas. Thousands of these lighters were used over a number of years. Dobereiner refused to file a patent for his lighter, commenting that "I love science more than money." Davy thought the action of platinum was the result of heat while Dobereiner believed the <_as20_a20_manifestation20_of20_electricity.20_faraday20_became20_interested20_in20_the20_subject20_and20_published20_a20_paper20_on20_it20_in20_18343b_20_he20_concluded20_that20_the20_cause20_for20_this20_reaction20_was20_similar20_to20_other20_reactions. a="" manifestation="" of="" electricity.="" faraday="" became="" interested="" in="" the="" subject="" and="" published="" paper="" on="" it="" _18343b_="" he="" concluded="" that="" cause="" for="" this="" reaction="" was="" similar="" to="" other="">
