The most important contribution of Robert Bunsen, one that changed chemistry labs all over the world, was the Bunsen Burner.

Revolutionized Chemistry

A staple in all chemistry labs, the Bunsen Burner is a device that uses a flammable gas to produce a hot flame.

The Bunsen Burner was the precursor to the gas stove many people used in their homes today.

Photochemistry

Born on March 31, 1811, Robert Bunsen is thought to be a trailblazer in the field of photochemistry. Photochemistry is a specialized branch of chemistry that looks at the chemical effects of light.

He was also well-known for his work on the chemistry of arsenic, a chemical element that is used for a variety of purposes including preserving wood, but is also toxic to human beings and animals in larger quantities.
