Edmund frémy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Edmund Frémy (1814-1894) carried extensive research in inorganic and organic
chemistry; he characterized ferric, stannic, antimony, and osmium acids; synthesized artificial rubies and colored glasses; prepared a large number of fluorides, isolated fluorhydric acid and proved it was an hydroacid, studied the preparation and properties of ozone; and investigated plant constitution and physiological phenomena. He discovered and identified palmitic acid in
palm oil, and synthesized the so-called Frémy’s salt, a long-lived free radical used as a standard in electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy.
