Hello, my name is Louis Pasteur. I was born in Dole, France, on December 27, 1822. I died on September 28, 1895 in Marnes-la-Coquette, France.
The work I did supported the germ theory of disease. I disproved the concept of spontaneous generation, showing that without contamination, microorganisms could not develop. I created the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax, and am best known for inventing the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial infection.
I taught Charles Friedel, who developed alkylation and acylation in 1877, and attempted to make synthetic diamonds.
