Abstract

Louis Édouard Grimaux (1835-1900), a French physician and pharmacist, devoted most of his efforts to the synthesis and properties of a large variety of organic compounds, the ureic series, alkaloids, nitrogen cyclic compounds, aromatic aldehydes, etc. He synthesized citric acid and a variety of colloids, albumins, and carbon hydrates. His open support of the innocence of Alfred Dreyfus led to his dismissal from the École Polytechnique, then under the rule of the Ministry of War.
