William Hyde Wollaston, British chemist

William Hyde Wollaston (1766-1828), British chemist and physicist. Wollaston gave up his medical practice in 1800 and earned a living from the sale of platinum, devoting his time to studying chemistry and optics. From platinum ore he discovered the elements palladium (1802) and rhodium (1804). He also pioneered powder metallurgy, and invented a reflecting goniometer and an improved microscope. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1793. This 1830 engraving for the Duke of Sussex by English artist William Skelton (1763-1848) is after a painting by English artist John Jackson (1778-1831)
