Joseph Black

Author Code: EJBK

Born: Apr. 16, 1728 - Bordeaux, France

Died: Dec. 6, 1799 - Edinburgh, Scotland

Educated at the University of Glasgow and the University of Edinburgh, Black initially studied medicine and received his M.D. While at Edinburgh, he was influenced by his professor to take up chemistry. In 1750, he developed an analytical balance and also began his work on magnesia alba. During these experiments he discovered carbon dioxide and his use of gravimetric measurements would influence later chemists such as Lavoisier. In 1756, he took a professor position at Glasgow and became a close colleague of James Watt. Over the next ten years, Black continued his experiments in the area of latent heat and thermodynamics. In 1766, he returned to Edinburgh and became one of the University's most popular lecturers, drawing students from all over Europe. During this time he also continued to practice medicine and had among his patients the philosopher David Hume. Black was a member of the Paris Academy of Sciences, the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Royal College of Physicians and the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences. His works include Experiments Upon Magnesia Alba, Quick-Lime and Other Alcaline Substances (1755) and Lectures on the Elements of Chemistry (1803 Posthumous).
