Franz Mercurius van Helmont

Franz Mercurius van Helmont (1614-1699) was the son of Jan Baptiste van Helmont and tutor and friend of Leibniz, who wrote his epitaph. He is best known for his publication of his fathers' prototype works on Chemistry, which present a problem to the dogmatic, in that they irrefutibly link the origins of the science to the religiously-castigated study of alchemy.
