There are plenty of very famous and pioneering scientists that originate from all over the world. These specialist chemists include people like August Kekule, Emil Fischer, Dmitri Mendeleev and Jonas Salk. So in what way have they contributed to the world of chemical science?

  • August Kekule
His full name was Friedrich August Kekule von Stradonitz and he was born in Darmstadt, Germany. Kekule's major contribution to science was his theory of chemical structure. This theory was used as an explanation for how carbon atoms can combine and bond with each other.
  • Dmitri Mendeleev
Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev was a Russian chemist who is most famous for his creation of the periodic table of elements. This was an entirely new way to categorize and understand all of the chemical elements and how they were structured together. The table now consists of all 188 known elements in chemistry.
  • Emil Fischer
Hermann Emil Fischer was a German chemist who received a Nobel Prize in the field of chemistry for his work. He mainly looked at the make-up and synthesis of chemicals such as caffeine and theobromine. His most recognized contributions come from his work with sugars and purines. He discovered the presence of the nucleobases such adenine and their presence in caffeine and vegetables.
  • Jonas Salk
Jonas Edward Salk was an American researcher in the field of chemistry. His most renowned contribution to the world of science is discovering and creating a polio vaccine. This was the first of its kind to be both effective in treating the disease and safe. The vaccine was presented to the world on 12 April 1955 and was named poliomyelitis and is still used today. The vaccine itself is made up of a deactivated dose of the poliovirus that is then used by the body to create a defense against the disease.
