Pierre Hippolyte Boutigny (1798-1884), a French chemist, was the first scientist to study in detail, and for many years, the behavior of a liquid drop thrown over a heated surface. He postulated that the result was an additional state of matter that he named spheroidal state. Today this phenomenon is called the Leidenfrost effect.
