Christopher Glaser, a pharmaceutical chemist of the 17th century, was a native of Baselmarker, became demonstrator of chemistry at the Jardin du Roimarker in Parismarker, and apothecary to Louis XIV and to the duke of Orleansmarker. He is best known through his Traité de la chymie (Paris, 1663), which went through some ten editions in about twenty-five years, and was translated into both German and English. It has been alleged that he was an accomplice in the notorious poisonings carried out by the marchioness de Brinvilliers, but the extent of his complicity is doubtful. He appears to have died before 1676. The sal polychrestum Glaseri is normal potassium sulfate which Glaser prepared and used medicinally. The mineral K3Na(SO4) 2 (Glaserite) is named after him.
