Working at the Royal Institution, Dewar continued researches in gas liquefaction begun by Faraday, and was the first to liquefy hydrogen. He and Kamerlingh Onnes engaged in a long and heated competition (eventually won by Kamerlingh Onnes) over who would be the first to liquefy helium; however, Dewar's interest was not so much in the liquefaction of gases per se, but in the properties of matter at temperatures approaching absolute zero.
