    Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac who coined the word pipette (and burette), studied titration and the alcohol by volume metric is also referred to as degrees Gay-Lussac.

    Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac

    Coined the terms pipette and burette, and ABV is aka degrees Gay-Lussac.


  10. Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac

    He developed an improved version of the burette that included a side arm, and coined the terms “pipette” and “burette” in an 1824 paper about the standardization of indigo solutions.

    His work on alcohol-water mixtures led to the degrees Gay-Lussac used to measure alcoholic beverages in many countries.

    Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac is the connect. He coined the terms pipette and burette (Pic 1 & 2) . Alcohol by volume is referred to as degrees Gay-Lussac (after the French chemist Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac)(pic 3).

    The connection is french chemist and physicist “Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac”
    Pic 1 & Pic 2 coined the terms “pipette” and “burette”, also developed improved version of the burette that included a side arm,
    Pic 3 – for his work on alcohol-water mixtures, which led to the “degrees Gay-Lussac” or “ABV” (alcohol by volume)

    Must be Pasteur.
    And, I learned that the glass tube used for sampling wine is called a *barrel thief*.

    joseph louis gay-lussac – super question!


  19. Karl Friedrich Mohr
    – invented an improved burette
    – developed calibrated pipettes
    – Mohr-Tranebjaerg syndrome (MTS) – Deafness-dystonia syndrome


  20. alcohol by volume


  21. Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac, didn’t see the who connects part

    After the BB crew hinted that Pasteur might not be the best answer, I checked again… And it seems another answer could be Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac as he developed a procedure for determining Alcohol by Volume and coined the term pipette. Which is a slightly better answer as Pasteur only had one style of pipette (the eye dropper) named after him and he worked out how bacteria interfere with the normal yeast fermentation in wine.
