Hilaire Chardonnet


French chemist and physiologist, the first to develop synthetic fibers. His studies of silkworms and of the structure of natural silk fibers helped him to develop artificial replicates. He studied under Louis Pasteur when Pasteur was carrying on his research work on silk. In 1884 he patented a synthetic nitrocellulose fiber made from cotton that became known as rayon. He later manufactured it as an industrialist.

Chardonnet died 12/03/1924, Paris.
