Thomas Carnelley (1854-1890), in spite of his short life, did fundamental research on the relation between the physical properties of the elements and their compounds, and their position in the Periodic Table (Carnelley's rules). His claims about "hot ice" inspired many famous scientists such as Ramsay and Young, to study in more detail the phase diagram of a pure substance. He did extensive research on the synthesis and properties of tolylphenyl, ditolyl, and their derivatives, discovering many new hydrocarbons in the process.
