Edward Frankland
Formula:
NaCa[B5O6(OH)6] · 5H2O
Name:
Named in 1877 by James Emerson Reynolds in honor of Edward Frankland [18 January 1825 Catterall, Lancashire, England, UK - 9 August 1899 Gålå, Gudbrandsdal, Norway]. Frankland was an experimental chemist who isolated several important organic radicals and synthesized organometallic compounds and was the scientist who coined that term. He studied in both the laboratories of Justus Liebig and of Robert Bunsen. His most important contribution to science was his conceiving of the valency theory of elements and explaining their forming chemical compounds when he and Adolf Wilhelm Hermann Kolbe were assistants in Lyon Playfair's laboratory. He was co-discoverer of the element helium. His career also was extremely important in public health relating to water purity of municipal systems and how water could be safer to drink. He taught chemistry at the early University of Manchester, later at the College of Civil Engineers (London), Royal India Military College (Surrey), St Bartholomew's Hospital, the Royal Institution (London), and for many years at the Royal School of Mines.
