Guillaume François Rouelle




He was demonstrator of chemistry at the Jardin du roi in Paris, France. He had his own pharmacy in which he taught several rising students of chemistry including Lavoisier. Rouelle was considered an experimentalist who did not tolerate theories with no laboratory foundation. He was the first to understand that a salt is derived by the reaction of an acid with a base.
