Abstract: Professor of toxicology at the University of Strasbourg, the chemist Émile Kopp was elected deputy at the parliament on a “red” list in 1949 but was banished after a manifestation against the government. Refugee in England, he discovered the chemical industry. When he turned back to France in 1855, he worked at his fatherin-law’s manufacture in Alsace and was consultant for several chemical firms. In the same time, he conducted researches in his own laboratory where he set a method to separate the main dyes of madder root. Later, as professor of industrial chemistry, in Turin then at the Polytechnicum of Zurich, he became the very appreciated mentor of several well-known chemists.
