Aimé Argand ( 1755- 1803) was Swiss physicist and chemist. He greatly improved the oil lamp. In 1784, he received a patent for his design which uses a glass chimney and a hollow wick to increase airflow producing a much brighter light and a smokeless flame because of more complete combustion. Argand lamps were used in lighthouses and theaters for over 100 years. ...more on Wikipedia about "Aimé Argand"

A chemist is a scientist trained in the science of chemistry. Chemists study the composition of matter and its small-scale properties such as density and acidity instead of large-scale properties like size and shape. Chemists carefully describe the properties they study in terms of quantities, with detail on the level of molecules and their component atoms. Chemists carefully measure substance proportions, reaction rates, and other chemical properties. Chemists use this knowlege to learn the composition, structure, and properties of unfamiliar substances, as well as to reproduce and synthesize large quantities of useful naturally occuring substances and create new artificial substances. Chemists may specialize in any number of subdisciplines of chemistry. Materials scientists share much of the same education and skills with chemists. ...more on Wikipedia about "Chemist"

Dr. Daniel W. Fox (about 1927 - February 15 1989) was a polymer chemist who is often regarded as the father of LEXAN. LEXAN is the flagship product of GE Plastics (a division of General Electric) and is used in everything from CDs and DVDs to car bumpers and Nalgene products. Though Dr. Fox is often credited with the invention of LEXAN resin, the patent and agreement to share the plastic between Bayer and General Electric is much more complicated than the simplistic "Father of LEXAN Polycarbonate" title bestowed upon Dr. Fox by many sources. ...more on Wikipedia about "Daniel Fox"
