a.k.a. Friedrich Christian Accum

Author Code: GFCA

Born: Mar. 29, 1769 - Buckeberg, Germany

Died: Jun. 28,1838 - Berlin, Germany

Educated at Buckeberg Gymnasium Adolfinum and was also tutored in French and English. Following completion of his studies, he served an apprenticeship as an apothecary. He then relocated to London in 1793. After working as an apothecary, Accum studied at the School of Anatomy in Great Windmill Street in London. Accum published his first article in 1798 in Nicholson's Journal and, later that year, married Mary Ann Simpson. They moved to Old Compton Street in 1800 and from this residence sold chemicals and instruments. Accum also taught chemistry.. In 1801, he accepted a position at the Royal Institution, working as a lab assistant to Humphrey Davy. He left in 1803, the year of one of his most significant publications, System of Theoretical and Practical Chemistry. For the following years, he lectured. In 1820, he published A Treatise on Adulteration of Food and Culinary Poisons, proving quite successful, selling a thousand copies in the first month. The controversy that arose from additive manufacturers and others led to Accum's exile to Germany. Settling in Berlin, Accum built a house in Marienstrasse, where he lived out his years. He died from a serious case of gout. His works include A Practical Essay on the Analysis of Minerals (1804), Elements of Crystallography (1813), Practical Treatise on Gas Light (1815), A Treatise on the Art of Brewing (1820), Treatise on the Art of Making Good and Wholesome Bread (1821) and Culinary Chemistry (1821).
