  • Charles Edward Munroe (24 May 1849 – 7 December 1938) was an American chemist, discoverer of the Munroe effect, and chair of the Department of Chemistry at the George Washington University. He was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts and studied at the Lawrence scientific school of Harvard, graduating in 1871. He then took a job as an assistant professor of chemistry at the college until 1874, when he moved to Annapolis to become a professor of chemistry at the United States Naval Academy. In 1886 he joined the Naval Torpedo Station and War College at Newport, Rhode Island as a chemist, where he discovered the Munroe effect, the basis for explosive shaped charges. From 1892–1917 Munroe was head of the Department of Chemistry and Dean of the Corcoran Scientific School at the Columbian University (renamed George Washington University in 1904). During the same time period, he was also the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and earned a Ph.D. in 1894 and LL.D in 1912 from the University. In 1919 he became Dean Emeritus of the School of Graduate Studies and Professor Emeritus of Chemistry, roles he kept until he died. He wrote over 100 books on explosives and chemistry, and was appointed in 1900 by the Swedish Academy of Science to nominate the candidate for the Nobel Prize in chemistry. In addition, Munroe served as president of the American Chemical Society in 1898 and as a consultant to the United States Geological Survey and the United States Bureau of Mines. (en)

  • Charles Edward Munroe (* 24. Mai 1849 in Cambridge (Massachusetts); † 7. Dezember 1938 in Forest Glen (Maryland)) war ein US-amerikanischer Chemiker und Entdecker des nach ihm benannten Munroe-Effekts. Munroe studierte an der Lawrence scientific school der Harvard University und machte seinen Hochschulabschluss 1871. Als Assistant Professor für Chemie blieb er bis 1874 am College bis er nach Annapolis (Maryland) zog, um dort Professor für Chemie an der United States Naval Academy zu werden. Im Jahre 1886 schloss er sich der Naval Torpedo Station am War College in Newport (Rhode Island) an, wo er den Munroe-Effekt entdeckte. Dieser ist die Basis für eine Hohlladung. Von 1892 bis 1917 war Monroe Leiter des Departments of Chemistry und Dekan der Corcoran Scientific School an der George Washington University. 1894 erhielt er den Ph. D. und 1912 den LL. D der Universität. 1919 emeritierte er als Dekan und wurde Dean Emeritus der School of Graduate Studies und Professor Emeritus of Chemistry bis zu seinem Tode. Munroe schrieb mehr als 100 Bücher über Chemie und Sprengstoffe. Im Jahre 1900 wurde er für den Nobelpreis für Chemie vorgeschlagen. Zusätzlich war er Präsident der American Chemical Society 1898 und Berater der United States Geological Survey und des United States Bureau of Mines. Er war der letzte Überlebende der Gründungsmitglieder der American Chemical Society in New York im Jahre 1876. 1891 wurde er in die American Academy of Arts and Sciences gewählt. (de)
