Meyer, Julius Lotha
Born: Varel (Germany), 1830
Died: Tübingen (Germany), 1895
Meyer earned a degree as a physician in 1854 and a Ph.D. at the University of Breslau in 1858. He studied under Bunsen and Kirchhoff. Meyer was very influenced by Cannizzaro’s remarks at the Karlsruhe Congress (1860). He published a textbook of chemistry (1864) with the new concepts of molecules as oxygen, nitrogen. He concentrated on a periodic system of chemical elements, but he did not predict, as Mendeleev did, the existence of undiscovered elements.
Julius Lothar Meyer (1830 – 1895) was active in many fields of chemistry
