Francis Arthur Freeth OBE FRS (2 January 1884 – 15 July 1970) was a British industrial chemist. He spent much of his career at Brunner Mond and its successor Imperial Chemical Industries, as chief chemist, research manager and in a recruiting capacity, with particular knowledge of phase rule chemistry, and developed many processes related to the manufacture of explosives. He made a critical contribution to the British World War I effort by devising new ways to manufacture ammonium nitrate, which was recognised with an honour, and a smaller contribution in World War II for the Special Operations Executive. Freeth created links between Brunner Mond and Dutch chemistry, particularly at the University of Leiden where he met Kammerlingh Onnes and was awarded a doctorate.

  • Francis Arthur Freeth, né le 2 janvier 1884 et mort le 15 juillet 1970, est un chimiste britannique, membre de la Royal Society. Il effectue la majeure partie de sa carrière dans l'industrie au sein de Brunner Mond puis de son successeur Imperial Chemical Industries, où il développe de nombreux procédés industriels dans le domaine de la chimie des explosifs. Il contribue de manière décisive à l'effort de guerre britannique lors de la Première Guerre mondiale en mettant au point de nouveaux procédés de fabrication du nitrate d'ammonium, ce qui lui vaut d'être nommé officier de l'Ordre de l'Empire britannique en 1924. Freeth fut à l'origine des liens entre Brunner Mond et le monde néerlandais de la chimie, particulièrement lors de son passage à l'université de Leyde où il rencontra Heike Kam
