Aristid von Grosse was a Germannuclear chemist. During his work with Otto Hahn, he got access to waste material from radium production, and with this starting material he was able in 1927 to isolate protactinium oxide and was later able to produce metallic protactinium by decomposition of protactinium iodide.
From 1948 to 1969, he was president of the Research Institute of Temple University. He was later affiliated with the laboratories of the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia until his retirement in 1979.
