Description

Revue d'histoire de la pharmacie - Année 1977 - Volume 65 - Numéro 235 - Pages 251-254
Macquer and Medicine. P.-J. Macquer abandoned medicine soon after graduating, and devoted his life to chemistry. He was aware of the benefits that medicine could acquire from chemistry, and in 1752 reported on the Comte de La Garaye's methods of making metallic remedies. In 1753 he served as professor of pharmacy in the Paris Faculté de Médecine, but made few references to pharmacy or medicines in his other courses or his early books. However, his Dictionnaire de chymie (1766) contains many such references. He became one of the most active members of the Société Royale de Médecine, founded in 1776, and prepared for it a number of reports, making use of his chemical knowledge. After 1776, he was less active in the Faculté, which disapproved of the Société. Documents concerning these little-known aspects of Macquer's career are preserved in Paris libraries and ought to be seriously studied.
