Life and work

Goubeau studied chemistry at the University of Munich starting from 1921 and attained a doctorate there 1926 over the atomic weight regulation of the potassiumin the group of Otto Hönigschmid under the supervision of Eduard Zintl. Subsequently, he worked on the University of Freiburg, the mountain academy Clausthal-Zellerfeld, where he made his postdoctoral lecture qualification in 1935 over the Raman effect in analytical chemistry. Starting from 1940 he became an university teacher at the University of Göttingen, and since 1951 professor at the Technical University Stuttgart. His focus of activity was the inorganic synthetic chemistry and spectroscopy of compounds of boron, silicon and phosphorus. Most important was his fundamental work about the Schwingungspektroskopie and to force constants as measure of the strength of chemical bonds.
