|Clemens Winkler's major contribution to science was his discovery and isolation of germanium in 1886. Germanium was the third element predicted by Mendeleev using his periodic table. Winkler named germanium in honor of his country, Germany. Winkler also played a role in the development of a manufacturing process of sulphuric acid and made advancements in the electrochemical analysis of gases.|
