Antoine Fran ois, comte de Fourcroy June 15, 1755 December 16, 1809 was a French chemist and a contemporary of Antoine Lavoisier Fourcroy collaborated with Lavoisier, Guyton de Morveau, and Claude Berthollet on the M thode de nomenclature chimique, a work that helped standardize chemical nomenclature.Fourcroy was born in Paris, the son of an apothecary in the household of the Duke of Orl ans On the advice of the anatomist F lix Vicq d Azyr 1748 1794 he took up medical studies, and after many difficulties caused by lack of means he finally obtained his doctor s diploma in 1780 Fourcroy s attention was turned specifically to chemistry by J B M Bucquet 1746 1780 , the professor of chemistry at the Medical School of Paris In 1784 Fourcroy was chosen to succeed P J Macquer 1718 1784 as lecturer in chemistry at the college of the Jardin du Roi, where his lectures attained great popularity.Fourcroy was one of the earliest converts to the views of Lavoisier, which he helped to promulgate by his own voluminous writings The Royal Society s Catalogue of Scientific Papers enumerates fifty nine memoirs by Fourcroy alone, and fifty eight written with others, mostly Louis Nicolas Vauquelin Fourcroy s 1785 publication, Entomologia Parisiensis, sive, Catalogus insectorum quae in agro Parisiensi reperiuntur , co written with tienne Louis Geoffroy, was a major contribution to systematic entomology.Although Fourcroy s name appears on a large number of chemical and also physiological and pathological memoirs, he was as much a teacher and an organizer as an original investigator While a member of the committees for public instruction and public safety, and later, under Napoleon I, director general of instruction, Fourcroy took a leading part in the establishment of schools for both primary and secondary education, scientific studies being especially provided for.In 1801, he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.Fourcroy died in Paris on December 16, 1809, the very day on which he was created a count of the French empire He is buried in the P re Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.It is believed that Cape Fourcroy, at the western tip of Bathurst Island, Northern Territory, Australia, is named after Fourcroy The cape was named during Baudin s expedition to Australia, and it is known that Baudin had a copy of one of Fourcroy s texts with him on the G ographe.By his conduct as a member of the Convention, Fourcroy has been accused of contributing to Lavoisier s death Georges Cuvier, in his Eloge historique of Fourcroy, repelled such charges The Encyclop dia Britannica Eleventh Edition says that although active, though secret, participation cannot be proved against Fourcroy, he can scarcely be acquitted of time serving indifference.
