History of Chemistry in Manchester

File:Melvin Calvin.jpg
Melvin Calvin completed his PhD in the School of Chemistry and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1961.

Manchester has a long and distinguished history of Chemistry. John Dalton founded modern Chemistry in 1803 with his atomic theory. James Joule pioneered the science of thermodynamics in the 1840s while working in Manchester. Carl Schorlemmer,[14] was appointed the first UK Professor of Organic Chemistry in 1874.
