The original process of Scheele does not yield an acid of uniform strength, and is probably never followed.
Scheele discovered this metal in the ashes of burnt vegetables.
The Swedish investigator Scheele had, however, discovered this same constituent of the air before 1773.
An elementary substance discovered by Scheele in 1774, and at first supposed to be a compound body.
An elementary body discovered by Scheele and Priestly in 1774.
Hydrocyanic acid was discovered by Scheele; but its nature and chemical properties were first investigated by Gay-Lussac.
The discovery of chlorine, by Scheele, formed the basis of nearly all our modern processes of bleaching cotton and other fabrics.
This is the oldest form of photography, and has been used since its introduction by Scheele in 1778.
Discovered long before by the indefatigable Scheele, it bore at the beginning of the nineteenth century the name oxymuriatic acid.
The only accurate knowledge we have of this acid is from the works of Mr Scheele.
Swedish chemist who discovered a number of compounds and elements. He discovered oxygen around 1771, but because the results of his experiments were not published until 1777, Joseph Priestley is usually credited with the discovery. Scheele made extensive investigations of plant and animal materials, and his work was fundamental to the development of organic chemistry.
