Archibald Scott Couper (/ˈkuːpər/; 31 March – 11 March ) was a Scottish chemist who proposed an early theory of chemical structure and bonding. He developed the concepts of tetravalent carbon atoms linking together to form large molecules, and that the bonding order of the atoms in a molecule can be determined from chemical evidence. Archibald Scott Couper was born at 6 pm on 31 March , the son of Archibald Couper, manufacturer and Helen Dollar. The entry in the Register of Neglected Entries (RNE) for Kirkintilloch gives the date of registration as 19 September on 'the authority of a related warrant by Robert Hunter Esquire, Sheriff of Dumbartonshire'.

The British chemist Archibald Scott Couper () shares with Kekulé the distinction of recognizing the tetravalency of carbon and the capacity of carbon atoms to combine to form chains, thereby providing the basis for structural organic chemistry. walked us through the investigative research that concluded that another chemist, Archibald Scott Couper was the first to propose the theory of the tetravalence of carbon, but it was Kekulé who published it just a month earlier (in May of ) than Couper[2].

Archibald Scott Couper (31 March – 11 March ) was a Scottish chemist who proposed an early theory of chemical structure and bonding.

He developed the concepts of tetravalent carbon atoms linking together to form large molecules, and that the bonding order of the atoms in a molecule can be determined from chemical evidence. Lavoisier went on to give science its first definition of an element: a substance that cannot be decomposed by existing chemical means.

He also set about drawing up a list of all the elements – now 33 elements replaced the ancient four. His list Original network: BBC Four. Introduction to the Essay “On a New Chemistry Theory” of Archibald Couper. Archibald Scott Couper wrote in a note about his new chemical theory that was presented by Jean Baptiste Dumas at the French Academy and published in Comptes presentation was followed by the publication of an essay entitled “Sur Une Nouvelle Theorie Chimique” in Annales de.

Which 2 scientists formulated the theory of chemical bonds. Archibald Scott Couper and Friedrich Kekulé Wallace Carothers successfully drew off a fibre from the interface of two liquids: hexane-1,6-diamine and decanedioyl-dichloride. Archibald Scott Couper wrote in a note about his new chemical theory that was presented by Jean Baptiste Dumas at the French Academy and published in Comptes rendus.

His presentation was followed by the publication of an essay entitled “ Sur Une Nouvelle Theorie Chimique ” in Annales de chimie et de physique.

This book was designed to help teachers supplement science curricula with human stories of discovery in the chemical sciences. Chemical Achievers presents the lives and work of two types of achievers.

First are the historical greats, those chemical scientists most often referred to in introductory courses. Second are those scientists who made contributions in areas of the chemical. Archibald Scott Couper. Written By: Archibald Scott Couper, (born MaKirkintilloch, Dunbartonshire, Scot.—died MaKirkintilloch), Scottish chemist who, independently of August Kekule, proposed the tetravalency of carbon and the ability of carbon atoms to bond with one another.

Kekulé famously “saw” carbon atoms joining in a “giddy dance” in a daydream. Couper invented a symbolic language to represent carbon linkage. Both made significant contributions to the field of structural chemistry.

In August Kekulé (–) and Archibald Scott Couper (–), two young men from different backgrounds, independently recognized that.

Archibald Scott Couper (MaKirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire, Scotland—MaKirkintilloch) developed the theory of chemical structure, namely that tetravalent carbon atoms can link together to form large molecules, and that the bonding order of the atoms can be determined from chemical evidence.
