10 FOREIGN CHEMIST1.
Democritus (460-370B.C.) -Greek philosopher, Developed atomic theory, -Elaborated idea that matterconsisted of atoms having physical size and shape which constantly moved in a void and interacted indifferent ways2.
Daniel Rutherford (1749-1819) -Discovered Nitrogen through experimentation with a mouse, a candle,and burning phosphorus3.
Robert Boyle (1627-1691) -English physicist and chemist, Experimented in pneumatics (the study of mechanical properties of air and other gases), Through research he rejected the accepted definition of matter, -
Proposed Boyle’s Law (1662)
Henry Canvendish (1731-1810) -English physicist and chemist, Discovered hydrogen (1766),Discovered nitric acid5.
John Dalton (1766-1844) -English chemist and physicist, Professor of mathematics and naturalphilosophy (1793), Developed atomic theory, His theory (1805) accounts for the law of conservation of mass, law of definite proportions, and law of multiple proportions, Produced the first table of atomicweights6.
Amedeo Avogadro (1776-1856) -His hypothesis stated that equal volumes of gases, at the sametemperature and pressure, had the same amount of molecules, Avogadros number is 6.022e23, meaningthat exactly 12 grams of carbon 12 has exactly 6.022e23 carbon atoms7.
Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac (1778-1850) -French chemist and physicist, Developed the law of volumesconcerning the combination of gases, Discovered Boron8.
Robert Wilhelm Bunsen (1811-1899) -German chemist, Helped develop the spectroscope, Introducedthe Bunsen burner that was actually developed by his laboratory assistant, Peter Desaga, Discoveredelements Cesium and Rubidium9.
Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev (1834-1907) -Russian chemist, Developed the periodic table by placing theelements in order of increasing atomic weight (1869), Predicted the existence and properties of elementsthat would fill the gaps left in his chart (1871), These elements were discovered between 1875 and 188510.
Joseph John Thomson (1856-1940) -English physicist, Researched atomic structure, Discovered thatatoms contained particles which he called "electrons" by testing the ratio of cathode ray particles to theirmass and found out that they were always the same. The tube was full of negatively charged particleseventually from his name called electrons., Developed the "plum pudding" or "raisin muffin," model of the atom which consisted of electrons embedded in a positive sphere of matter (1904), Received NobelPrize for physics (1907), Developed the mass spectrograph with Francis William Ason (1919)10 FILIPINO CHEMIST1.
Julian Banzon - Filipino chemist, Julian Banzon researched methods of producing alternative fuels.Julian Banzon experimented with the production of ethyl esters fuels from sugarcane and coconut,and invented a means of extracting residual coconut oil by a chemical process rather than aphysical process.
