Eugene Turpin, inventor of turpinite, WW1

Eugene Turpin, French inventor and chemist who in 1884, first discovered melinite (picric acid) which produced the worlds first explosive shells. He later developed turpinite, used by the French against the Germans in 1914. According to reports, it had devastating effects, although the claim that it petrified the Germans where they stood sounds somewhat far-fetched. Date: 1914
