Robert Boyle, Discoverer of Boyle's law, Was Born

Robert Boyle (1627 – 1691) was a natural philosopher, chemist, physicist and inventor. He is best known for the formulation of Boyle's law - one of several gas laws. Although his research and personal philosophy clearly has its roots in the alchemical tradition, he is largely regarded today as the first modern chemist, and therefore one of the founders of modern chemistry.
