• Fritz Haber was from Germany and he created ammonia. This allowed him to a Nobel Prize. August von Kekule was a German chemist who worked in organic chemistry and created the structural theory. Organic chemistry is the field of chemistry that only deals with organic matter. Synthetic or man-made chemicals are not used. Erwin Schrodinger was also a German chemist and he created an equation to calculate an atom's energy. Robert Bunsen was a German chemist who created both the Bunsen burner and the stethoscope.
• Marie Curie discovered radium and polonium. These elements are radioactive. They have been used in the research and creation of modern nuclear technology, including nuclear weapons. Her work with these elements is believed to have caused her to contract cancer, which ultimately led to her death. She literally died for her work. Joseph Louis Gay Lussac was a French chemist who created a law for combing gases.
• Dmitri Mendeleyev created the Periodic Table and was from Russia. The periodic table lists all elements that are known to man, and creates an organized table that scientists can easily interpret. Amaedeo Avogadro was from Italy who did extensive research in gases. Svante Arrhenius was a Swedish chemist who created the ionic theory. Niels Bohr from Denmark did research with atoms.
• Robert Boyle and John Dalton were both English chemists. Boyle discovered Boyle's law. Boyle's law is an extremely important aspect of chemistry. John Dalton created the atomic theory. Michael Faraday was also English. He did research in electricity and metals. Humphrey Davy discovered sodium and potassium. Those elements are electrolytes that keep humans and animals hydrated and keep the brain function stable. Electrolytes can actually be given to people through IVs, and can often stabilize people who were once thought to have dementia or other illnesses. Daniel Rutherford discovered nitrogen and its uses.

A couple of them are Hoffman and La-Roche they accidently discovered a wonderful class of compounds known as benzodiazepines, the 1st was chlordiazepoxide which is sold under the tradename Librium and the other was diazepam sold as Valium

another is Akabori, he discovered a way to convert aldehydes into amines using amino acids

look in The Merck Index it is filled with all kinds of names and named reactions, I'm sure you can find archives of it on The Internet
