Some particularly famous Filipino chemists and their contributions include:
  • Julian Banzon - worked in ethyl ester fuels using sugarcane.
  • Francisco Quisumbing - established the Quink ink.
  • Ramon Barba - created new crop techniques for flowering using a potassium nitrate spray.
  • Francisco Santos - worked in chemical composition of food and nutritional values.
  • Rolando De La Cruz - invented a skin cream to help with cancer.
  • Alfredo Santos - a biochemical chemist working with isolation and elucidation techniques.
  • Anacleto Del Rosario - helped with research on castor oil in native plants. He received a prize at the World Fair in Paris in 1881.
  • Fe Del Mundo - a scholar of medicine who invented the incubator.
There are other important chemists in the Philippines who have helped the nation and the world with various experiments and inventions. Some chemists are occasionally over looked, perhaps because they were doctors who simply used aspects of chemistry to evolve medical science.

The Philippines have had numerous chemists that have contributed to the world, including chemists from the past such as Daniel Dingel, who tried to invent a water-powered car in 1969 although he did not have particular success with his contribution. The main factor in most of the contributions has been to improve the world being lived in.

Agapito Flores is another example of a chemist who is credited with the invention of the fluorescent lamp, which is a main lighting source of today. Though Flores is credited with it, his invention was on the backbone of Edison's work.

FILIPINO SCIENTISTS
Eduardo San Juan: One of the famous Filipino inventors, who is considered as the inventor of Lunar Rover, or commonly known as Moon Buggy. Moon buggy was used by Neil Armstrong, along with other astronauts, during their journey to the moon in 1969. It is claimed that he constructed this vehicle, which could operate beyond earth’s atmosphere, using homemade materials. However, Eduardo San Juan is not considered as the inventor of moon buggy by NAST.
Edward Caro: Edward Caro is a famous Filipino scientist who was recognized and awarded by the NASA in 2002 for his contributions in launching the Shuttle Explorer or Radar Topography.
Rudy Lantano Sr.: Rudy Lantano Sr., another famous Filipino inventor, won a gold medal for developing Super Bunker Formula-L in 1996. This invention, a revolutionary fuel, is composed with half of water. This fuel is known to emit pollutants 95% less than as compared to traditional fuel products. Also, this fuel burns faster than traditional fuels.
Dr. Virgilio Malang: This famous Filipino scientist has won a number of medals of his inventions. He won a gold medal for invention of "Psidium Guajava Effervescing Gynecological Insert". He also won a silver medal for Patient Side-Turning Hospital Bed. In addition, he also won three bronze medals for his invention of ‘light refracting earpick’, broom's way of hanging and external vaginal cleanser

Julian A. Banzon, Ph.D (1908-1988)
Was a biophysical chemist. He concentrated his scientific studies on the Philippine palm, the coconut. He showed that it can be a renewable source of chemicals and fuels. He made on of the first studies on fuels from the coconut and sugarcane, two Philippine indigenous crops.
Clara Y. LimSylianco, Ph.D (1925- )
is the one of the leading Filipino scientist. She is also a famous teacher in the field of biochemistry and organic chemistry. Her work involved the study of mutagens (substance that increase the rate of mutation of cells), anti mutagens and bio organic mechanisms. She focused her researches on Philippine medicinal plants like coconut and amplaya. Her laboratory at the University of the Philippines was designated as an international training center for the detection of chemical mutagens by the Research Planning in Biological Sciences, Washington, D.C., USA in 1986 for her various discoveries on environmental mutagens. She was appointed a member of International Advisory Committee on Anti mutagens in 1989.
