Théofile-Jules Pelouze. Glass, wine and explosives

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Théophile-Jules Pelouze (1807-1867) was an outstanding analytical
and experimental chemist that worked on a variety of important industrial subjects such as salicine, sugar beet, tannin, pyrogallic acid, nitrocellulose, butyric
fermentation, glass manufacture, and curare. He left us with several analytical
and production methods for the above products but little in the way of theory.
His works on nitrocellulose were an important element in the development of
nitroglycerine production by Alfred Nobel.
