After looking at the early careers of Wurtz's two mentors, Liebig and Jean-Baptiste Dumas, Rocke describes Wurtz's life and career in the politically complex period leading up to 1853. He then discusses the turning point in Wurtz's intellectual life--his conversion to the "reformed chemistry" of Laurent, Gerhardt, and Williamson--and his efforts to persuade his colleagues of the advantages of the new system.
