Guess the Chemist (140)

Author: ChemistryViews

The scientist we are looking for this time might be called an alchemist rather than a modern chemist, but nonetheless made important scientific discoveries. For example, they produced a substance via destructive distillation that was used, e.g., as a remedy for different diseases and as an animal and insect repellent.

Our scientist also developed a process for the production of a compound that has applications as both a smelling salt and a leavening agent for baking. Maybe most importantly, they co-developed a synthesis process for a widely used pigment.
