FILIPINO AND FOREIGN CHEMIST Julian Banzon Julian Banzon - Filipino Chemist: Filipino chemist, Julian Banzon researched methodsof producing alternative fuels. Julian Banzon experimented with the production of ethylesters fuels from sugarcane and coconut, and invented ameans of extracting residualcoconut oil by a chemical process rather than a physical process Francisco SantosFilipino agricultural chemist, Doctor Francisco Santosstudied the nutritive values and chemical composition oflocal foods from the Philippines. His data was used to helpdetect and solve problems with Filipino diets. Lourdes CruzDoctor Lourdes Cruz has made scientific contributions tothe biochemistry field of conotoxins, in particular thetoxins of the venom of the marine snail Conus geographus.Lourdes Cruz documented the biochemical characterizationof the homologous highly toxic monomeric peptides withinternal disulfide bonds including: Conotoxin GI, ConotoxinGIA and Conotoxin GII. Lourdes Cruz has helped developconotoxins for the purpose biochemical probes forexamining the activities of the human brain.
charles Goodyear Was the first to vulcanize rubber, a process which he discoveredin 1839 and patented on June 15, 1844. Although Goodyear is often credited with its invention, modern evidence hasproven that theMesoamericans used stabilized rubber for balls and other objects as early as 1600 BC.Goodyear discovered the vulcanization process accidentally after five years of searching for a more stable rubber Arnold Johannes Wilhelm Sommerfeld (5 December 1868 – 26 April 1951) wasaGermantheoreticalphysicistwhopioneered developmentsinatomicandquantum physics, and also educated and groomeda large number of students for the new era oftheoretical physics. Heintroduced thefine-structure constantintoquantum mechanics Dr. Quirino O. Navarro , a Filipino chemist born March 29 1936, graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at theUniversity of the Philippines in 1956, He recieved his Ph.D. in Nuclear Chemistry at the University of California in 1962. Dr. Navarros significant contribution to science is the determination of nuclear properties in the isotopes of californium, einsteinium and dysprosium using cryogenictechniques. Hisfindings were cited in two books and threeinternational tomes of nuclear science and later confirmed at theUniversity of California at Berkeley with the use of advanced instrumentation. Dr. Navarro has also worked onneutron spectrometry and crystallography; and electronics and instrumentation process.
JOSE O.JULIANODr. Jose O. Juliano is a famous Filipino scientist, born on October 16th 1932, and most famous for hisresearch into nuclear chemistry andphysics. He received a TONYM award for his involvements in thisfield in 1959. He is also an affiliate of the American Nuclear Society, American Physical Society and theAmerican Chemical Society.Through his contributions a better understanding of nuclear science has come about. He has published aremarkable fifty printresearch works, and a one of the most notable examples is Rapid and Non-destructive Analysis of Sulfur and Calcium by Radio activation and Photo neutron Counting andDisintegration of Iron-52 and Iron- 53 JOHN DALTON john Dalton (1766-1844), English chemist andphysicist,(1793), developed atomic theory. His theory(1805) accounts for the law of conservation of mass, lawof definite proportions, and law of multiple proportions, healso reduced the first table of atomic weights LUIS FEDERICO LELOIRLuis Federico Leloir (1906-1987), Argentinebiochemist and winner of the 1970 NobelPrize for research into sugar nucleotides,metabolism of carbohydrates, and renalhypertension
