Anglo-irish chemist, physicist and inventor. One of the founders of the Royal Society. Following Bacon's principles (though never avowedly Baconian) he established the experimental method. His work marks the beginning of modern chemistry. He correctly aduced that matter comprised 'corpuscles' which were built of different configurations of primary particles that could not be reduced.
