The New International Encyclopædia/Delbrück, Max Emil Julius

DELBRÜCK, Max Emil Julius (1850—). A German chemist, brother of Hans Delbrück, born in Bergen. He studied chemistry in Berlin and in Greifswald. In 1872 he was made assistant at the Academy of Trades in Berlin; in 1887 he was appointed instructor at the Agricultural College, and in 1899 was given a full professorship. The researches, carried out in part by Delbrück himself, in part under his guidance, have resulted in technical contributions of the highest value to the fermentation industries. He is one of the editors of the Zeitschrift für Spiritusindustrie (1867), and of the Wochenschrift für Brauerei.
