Company History: The history of former Degussa began in the half of the 19th century, when the head of the Frankfurt Mint, Friedrich Ernst Roessler, established a gold and silver separation factory at the city’s request in 1843. Furthermore, Roessler initiated the construction of a chemical-technical laboratory close to the Mint, on the premises of today’s Evonik site. This laboratory processed the byproducts of sulfuric acid separation, namely silver nitrate and cyanide salts. When Frankfurt lost its political independence in 1866 as a consequence of the Prussian-Austrian War, Friedrich Ernst Roessler became a Prussian civil servant and withdrew from the separation business. His eldest sons, Hector and Heinrich, both chemists, took over operations. They transferred the separation factory to the chemical-technical laboratory and continued both activities as the company Friedrich Roessler Söhne.
