21 Sep Science Tuition Presents Marcellin Berthelot
Hello and welcome back to your Science Tuition. We hope you have been learning about new chemists each day in Science Tuition lessons.
Continuing with our topic on the famous chemists, today we are exploring more about Marcellin Berthelot.
Marcellin was born on 25th October 1857 and was a French chemist. He is on the map of our chemistry world for his famous Thomsen–Berthelot principle of thermochemistry. One of his contributions is that he has synthesized many organic components from the inorganic substances which in return have provided a large amount of counter-evidence to the theory of Jöns Jakob Berzelius which states that organic compound in their synthesis requires organisms.
He was considered as one of the most famous chemists in the world. The basic concept behind all Berthelot’s chemical work was that all chemical phenomena depend on the action of physical forces which can be determined and measured.
