Bernard Jacques Flürscheim
(27 Nov 1874 - 15 Jan 1955)
German-British organic chemist who emigrated to England in 1905 and made a fortune from the invention of the powerful explosive tetranitroaniline (TNA) in 1910. He created a theory of affintity to determine the reactive centres in a molecule such as phenol (championed by the young organic chemist Christopher K. Ingold in the early 1920s).
