Biography

German (Prussian) chemist, physicist and biologist. Achard invented the industrial process to produce table sugar (sucrose) from beets. Table sugar used to be a luxury item only the wealthy could afford. Achard's sugar refineries produced sugar at a much lower price where anyone could afford to have a sugar bowl in their house.

Achard studied many subjects, including meteorology, evaporation chillness, electricity, telegraphy, gravity, lightning arresters, and published in German and French.

Achard was a favorite of King Frederick II of Prussia, and directly reported to the King on his research twice a week.

In 1776 Achard was elected to the Royal Academy of Sciences at Berlin. In 1782 he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

He published several volumes of chemical and physical researches, discovering among other things a method of working platinum.

He died, destitute, on 20 April 1821 in Wohlau.
