Original Abstract

The steady advances of academic discoveries and technical inventions lead to a steady progress in simplifying human chores, improving the lot of many and opening new opportunities. Sometimes, however, these advances may have unintended or unrecognized negative consequences as well. This article is focusing on two technologies, both related to applications in energy, which were based on two metal elements, mercury and lead. As the poisonous nature and its impact on environment became more and more apparent, the use of these metals in many technological processes was pushed into background or oblivion. The purpose of this perspective is to give an overview of some obsolete applications of these metals with the goal to highlight ingenuity of prior generation of engineers and scientists.
