6976 American inventor Thomas Midgley working at General Motors (GM) discovered a fuel additive tetraethyl lead which prevented pre-ignition, known as knocking, in internal combustion engines solving a major problem in the automobile industry. It was launched the following year and quickly adopted by petrol (gasoline) companies worldwide who switched to leaded fuel. Unfortunately lead in certain forms is toxic and for sixty years, almost unchallenged, it polluted the atmosphere, killing or disabling many in the industry who had too close a contact with it, until consumer pressure forced the automakers to begin producing cars that ran on lead free fuel.
The production of coke and coal gas left huge residues of coal tar which were initially regarded as mostly waste. It was another 55 years before Perkin showed how considerable value could be extracted from this waste.
Cast steel can be made by a variety of processes including crucible steel, the Bessemer converter and the open hearth method and thus may have a range of properties. See steelmaking summary above.
