That whole "...until his death in 1863..." contradicts the earlier statement of his detah being in 1882. All other sites about him say 1882 only, so I will remove this 1863 figure. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 02:51, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
Correct citation for "About the Artificial Formation of Urea"
The article page says: Friedrich Wöhler. "Ueber künstliche Bildung des Harnstoffs". Annalen der Physik und Chemie 37 (1): 330. The correct citation is:
Friedrich Wöhler. "Ueber künstliche Bildung des Harnstoffs". Annalen der Physik und Chemie, 1828, 87(2), 253-256. (Year = 1828, Volume = 87, Issue = 2, pages 253-256.)
The document PDF itself is available from Wiley journals on-line here (subscription required).
Volume 37, Issue 1, page 330 makes no sense for Annalen. Volume 37 was 1811; there is no page 300 in Issue 1; however, 1811, 37(2) page 300 is the middle of an article by Jacob Berzelius, "VERSUCH die bestimmten und einfachen Verhältnisse aufzufinden, nach welchen die Bestandtheile der unorganischen Natur mit einander verbunden sind".

Nickel in a state of purity
The following sentence has no meaning to chemists:
"obtaining the metal nickel in a state of purity"
If one mixes nickel with, say, carbon 1:1 it is in one state of purity. If one mixes it 99:1, it is in another state of purity. And so on. I will therefore remove this claim from the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:22, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
