Paul Schützenberger (1829-1897), a French physician and chemist, carried on important research in the areas of inorganic, organic, and physiological chemistry, He established the composition of a large number of alkaloids and dyes of vegetable origin, studied the hydrolysis of proteins and the nature of cellulose, discovering cellulose acetate. Prepared a large number of new compounds by replacing the metal of a salt by an halogen or an electronegative radical; discovered hyposulfurous acid, synthesized many bisulfites, and showed their used for the dosage of dissolved oxygen; discovered the carbonyls of chloroplatinic and phosphoplatinic acids, and established the existence of silicon carbide (carborundum).

Keywords : albuminoids; alkaloids; cellulose; cellulose acetate; chloroplatinic acid; hyposulfurous acid; hyposulfites; phosphoplatinic acid; platinum; proteins; vegetable dyes.
