Robert Boyle was an Irish chemist, physicist, and inventor.  Boyle is largely regarded today as the first modern chemist, therefore a founder of modern chemistry, and one of the pioneers of modern experimental scientific method.  He is best known for Boyle’s law, which describes the inverse relationship between pressure and volume of gas.
