ALEXANDRE-LÉON ÉTARD Contribution to Chemistry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Alexandre-Léon Étard (1852-1919) was a French chemist who discovered the
synthesis of aldehydes by the oxidation of organic compounds with chlorochromic
acid (Étard reaction), studied the synthesis and properties of cupro-cupric sulfites, the ferricyanides, determined the solubility of a large number or inorganic and organic salts, carried on the synthesis of many new organic compounds, and determined the composition of strychnine.
