There are a number of Filipino scientists that have made a contribution, but outside of the academic world they seldom get the recognition that they deserve. These achievements are not recent ones either: Amado Flores was from the Philippines and was responsible for the invention of the fluorescent light bulb.

Other Filipino scientists include Gregorio Y. Zara, D.Sc. Physics whose achievements include the invention of an airplane engine that runs on alcohol instead of aviation fluids; a method by which solar energy can be harnessed and the discovery of electrical kinetic resistance. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal for his pioneering works, the Presidential Gold Medal and the Diploma of Honor for Science and Research, and the Cultural Heritage Award for Science Education and Aero Engineering.

Magdalena C. Cantoria, Ph.D. Botany focused her studies on the physiology, morphology and the biochemistry of drug plants for which she received the Edwin Leigh Newcomb Award given by the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education on two occasions.

Paulo C. Campos, MD, another Filipino scientist, is renowned for the work that he has done in nuclear medicine. He co-authored 75 scientific publications and won prizes for some of them, including the first prize in the Research Award. He has also been credited for establishing the first radioisotope laboratory in the Philippines and the first research laboratory at the University of the Philippines Medicine Department.

Pedro B. Escuro, PhD. Genetics and Plant Breeding has contributed hugely to the development of rice seed varieties, and has been awarded with 18 separate honors, including two Presidential awards for his work.

Jose N. Rodriguez, MD Leprology is one of the few people  who have dedicated their lives in the fight against worldwide leprosy, and his publications are considered to be classic in the world of leprosy research. He too has been recognized with honors and awards.

Although, you may not first believe that many Filipinos scientists have invented famous and very useful things, when researching you will actually find there are many claims to fame for the Filipinos.

A list of some of the most famous Filipinos scientist and their contributions is as follows:

· Gregorio Y. Zara, D. Sc.

Gregorio Y. Zara invented the first two-way television phone. It was confirmed that Zara had made the first basic form of what we now would describe as video calling. He is also the founder of an electrical kinetic resistance which is called the 'Zara effect'

· Dr. Luz Oliveros-Belardo

Luz Oliveros-Belrdo's most famous work was with essential oils. Due to her research there is now an influx of different types of essential oils on the market.

· Francisco Quisumbing

The 'Quink' ink for pens such as Parker was actually invented by Francisco Quisumbing.

· Eduardo San Juan

Eduardo San Juan invented and developed the moon buggy and its world famous design was originally made out of simple home-made materials.

· Agapito flores

Agapito Flores was the first to make and design what we call today a fluorescent light - which is still a very important source of light in the present world.

Therefore as you can see by the brief rundown of some of the inventions mentioned, Filipinos scientists have brought a lot of vital things to market. Their work is certainly not finished, so you will have to keep an eye out for many more inventions and discoveries in the near future.

The famous Filipino and Foreign chemist is a collective term which relates to some of the most important and influential chemists of all time and what contributions they have made to the chemistry and medicine branch. Even in today's age of constantly evolving technology, we are still completely reliant on the discoveries of chemists before us. Without them, we probably wouldn't have existed due to serious life threatening illnesses that would have otherwise destroyed the human race. Therefore, the Filipino and Foreign chemist have been of unbelievable importance to absolutely everyone on this Earth, due to chemistry being such a fundamental aspect to human life.

Chemistry first came about as far back as around 600BC with a group of Greek philosophers who wanted answers for the world around them. There was a lot of questioning and speculation around this time and afterwards to, as little was actually discovered, they merely considered different things that could've created life. The idea of an atom arose between 440 and 420BC which was known as the Age of Atomism, where Leucippus and Democritus believed that everything was made from a small thing that was invisible to the naked eye: An atom. This was proven by scientists in modern ages.

The study of Chemistry is the study of the science of matter, the matter which makes up our physical world. It allows us to create more of an understanding about the world we live in and use this information with practical application to create life saving drugs and understand more about terminal illnesses in the hope to one day cure them. With the addition of technology which, with our scientists, is constantly improving, illnesses are being cured much more frequently than ever before. Chemistry is essentially a science that keeps us alive.

-experimented with the production of ethyl ester fuels from sugarcane and coconut and invented a means of extracting residual coconut oil by a chemical process rather than a physical process. A pioneer for alternative fuels rom the 1930's and 40's.

Francisco Quisumbing -invented Quink ink (currently used in Parker Pens) which is a quick drying ink that prevents the ink from clogging the pen.

Ramon Barba
-created crop flowering techniques using a potassium nitrate spray. Due to his discoveries in tropical tree physiology, the Philippines is the leading exporter of mangoes and mango products.
