- 29 MAY 2019See moreChristian Bergh Backer’s life and the birth of the Backer elementChristian Backer was born in 1885 in the village of Flisa, a little way north of Kongsvinger in Norway. His father was a crofter, but also ran a smithy. Christian Backer was the youngest of 8 children, most of whom emigrated to the USA and Canada at a fairly young age. Christian Backer proved early on to have an aptitude for research. Having passed his school-leaving examination in Kongsvinger, he became an assistant to a professor at the Norwegian Institute of Technology in Trondheim, while also pursuing his own studies. The professor he assisted was working on a number of projects, including extracting pure magnesium from seawater.It was during his work with the metallic element magnesium that Christian Backer identified the properties of magnesium hydroxide and magnesium oxide, and recognised the potential for using pure magnesium, which is a good electrical conductor, to produce magnesium oxide, one of the best known electrical insulators and also an exceptional conductor of heat, even at high temperatures.
