Meyer, Julius Lothar


Born Aug. 19, 1830, in Varel, Oldenburg;died Apr. 11, 1895, in Tübingen. German chemist. Professor at the University of Tübingen from 1876. Corresponding member of the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences (1890).

Meyer’s principal works were in inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry. By empirical means, Meyer attempted to group similar chemical elements in a system. After the publication (1869) of D. I. Mendeleev’s periodic law of chemical elements, Meyer published (1870) a table of elements that was, in his own words, “essentially identical with that given by Mendeleev.”
