National Bunsen Burner Day is an annual celebration observed on March 31st of every year. Do you remember the chemistry laboratory of your high school in which you used the Bunsen burner to do the experiments? The Bunsen Burner is considered to be one of the notable inventions in the field of chemistry. It is a typical piece of laboratory equipment that can be seen in the chemistry lab. Of course, this invention needs to be acknowledged, as most heating, sterilization, and combustion processes in the laboratory make use of the Bunsen burner. Celebrate the history, origin, and especially the person who invented the bunsen burner, as it is National Bunsen Burner Day.

“A chemist who is not a physicist is nothing at all.” – Robert Bunsen

History of National Bunsen Burner Day

The National Bunsen Burner Day history, origin, and the person who came up with this idea are unknown. There isn’t anywhere mentioned the year when this Day was celebrated. Bunsen Burner was named after Robert Bunsen who invented it in the year 1854 at the University of Heidelberg. The date was chosen in honor of German chemist and Bunsen Burner inventor Robert Wilhelm Eberhard von Bunsen, who was born on March 31, 1811. Bunsen Burner produces a single open smokeless blue flame and is available in the chemistry lab. It is laboratory equipment that produces a gas flame at very high temperatures.

National Bunsen Burner Day

The invention of the Bunsen burner has changed the way of heating, sterilization, and combustion processes in chemistry labs all over the world. The gas used on the burner can be either a natural gas, which is usually methane, or a liquefied petroleum gas like propane, butane, or a mixture of both. Robert Bunsen was considered to be a trailblazer in the field of photochemistry, a specialized branch in chemistry, and it is all about the chemical effects of light. The invention of the Bunsen burner opened up new opportunities for the use of natural gas. A standard tool in chemistry, the Bunson burner is found throughout schools and laboratories around the world.
