Description

Jons Jacob Berzelius (1779-1848) was one of the 19th century's greatest chemists. He devised the first consistently accurate method of using the oxidation technique developed by Joseph Louis Gay-Lusac (1778-1850) and Louis Jacques Thenard (1777-1857); a technique which allowed surveys of organic composition to be made. His accurate determination of atomic weights established the laws of combination and John Dalton's (1766-1844) atomic theory. He introduced modern chemical symbols and discovered the elements selenium, thorium and cerium.
