The great chemists deserve a great grave.
Dmitri Mendeleev, August Kekulé

Some had their graves a bit overdone.

A chemist can die in a lousy way, but a chemist can have a lousy grave as well.

2) Lise Meitner

4) Richard Adolf Zsigmondy

4) Friedrich WöhlerWas elected number 1 of the dead chemists but has a simple and plain grave.
