I think everybody will agree that "J. H." as the title of this article is silly, we don't have G. W. Bush either. Question is what to move it to. For me, a Dutchman, Jacobus van 't Hoff seems most appropriate, as Jacobus Henricus van 't Hoff would be the same as George W. Bush, which should be a redirect. However, he does occur more often on Google in that way. What should be done here; the naming convention is conflicting here, and I am biased being Dutch. Anybody? Jeronimo 03:38 Aug 1, 2002 (PDT)
Should definetely be either Jacobus van 't Hoff or Jacobus Henricus van 't Hoff22.214.171.124 20:03, 25 Jan 2005 (UTC)
The following statement in the introduction should be given a source or removed.
"He is also considered to be one of the greatest chemists of all time together with French chemists Antoine Lavoisier and Louis Pasteur and German chemist Friedrich Wöhler."
This goes against the guideline Wikipedia:Avoid weasel words. Somebody should put in the evidence supporting the claim or add a notable source if one can be found. If this can not be done I think the statement should be removed. [[Guest9999 16:36, 11 April 2007 (UTC)]]
