Sent in the light bulb, and the glass surface. Langmuir was then led to study the adsorption of gaseous molecules on solid surfaces in function of the temperature and pressure. This was the first description of the thermodynamic phenomena occurring at a gas - solid interface. These studies were to have a deep influence on the description and elucidation of the mechanisms of heterogeneous catalysis, which involve reactions between gas molecules activated by a solid catalyst. He thus developed an equation known as the "Langmuir isotherm", describing the parameters that determine the chemisorption of molecules to the surface of a solid.

In 1912, the German bacteriologist Paul Ehrlich invited him to hold a post at the "Georg Speyer Haus", a research institute based in Frankfort. After Ehrlich's death in 1915, Karrer focused on the chemistry of plant products. In 1918 he went to Zurich, where he succeeded Werner (deceased in 1919). He became Professor within the University's Department of Chemistry, then Rector of the university from 1950 to 1953.
