There are many chemists from many countries who have made great contributions to the field of chemistry. The list is long and distinguished and includes some of the biggest names in science that history has ever known. Some of the biggest names and their contributions are listed here:

• Michael Faraday - English chemist made great contributions to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. He is directly responsible for having discovered electromagnetic induction and the laws of electrolysis.
• Dmitri Mendeleev - Russian chemist who created the very first version of the periodic table of elements. Using this as a tool, he correctly predicted the properties of many elements that had yet to be discovered when he lived.
• Antione Lavoisier - French chemist who is known as the father of modern chemistry. He was the first to coin the term oxygen and hydrogen, and also had a hand in developing the metric system that is still in use to this day. He was also the first to pioneer many of the tools that modern chemists still use to this day.
• Louis Pasteur - French chemist who is best known for making remarkable progress in the field of disease prevention and causes. He is known for creating the first effective vaccine for rabies and anthrax and his research led the germ theory of disease. If that is not enough, he was even married to a Nobel award-winning scientist in Marie Curie.

There have been many scientists world-wide who have made great contributions to the field of chemistry, and this field of research is a science program in almost all major American and foreign universities to this day. Chemistry is the reason we live relatively free of diseases such as smallpox, rabies, and many more which has led to longer life spans over the past several decades.
